Be the Mockingjay with These Hunger Games Craft Projects

submit-your-hunger-games-crafts-here

Of course, like most franchises, the Hunger Games has a legion of many devoted as well as misunderstood fans. After all, you’ve seen how this plays out with the merchandising. Yes, there are plenty of fans willing to buy anything even Hunger Games stuff that misses the story’s point. Another thing that’s prevalent among Hunger Games fans are the crafts. Just look on Pinterest or Etsy to see what I mean. Better yet, see this graphic above. Of course, we all know that most Hunger Games fans are teenage girls and young women and craft projects are seen as feminine activities. However, it’s pretty clear that most NFL fans are men and I found absolutely no problem looking for NFL craft projects either. Yes, there are a lot of female football fans out there but that’s beside the point. Besides, I’ve done posts on craft projects pertaining to material mostly attributed to men like taxidermy and wood sculpture. Yes, taxidermy and wood working count as crafts too, as well metal working. But guys don’t tend to admit that. Still, in this post you’ll see plenty of fan made craft projects attributed to the Hunger Games. Some of them may be cute and clever. Some of them might be in poor taste or have some disturbing connotations. Some might make you wonder what the hell were they thinking. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasury of Hunger Games craft projects created by the fans. And no, I don’t think many of them are licensed by Lionsgate buy screw them.

  1. Remember the third Quarter Quell with this commemorative necklace.
Now this has stuff relating to Catching fire. There's fire of course as well as the Mockingjay, arrow, and 12 for District 12. But you also see a clock and the pearl. If you haven't read the books or see the movies, you wouldn't understand.

3. Of course, there are always plenty of supplies in the arena at the Cornucopia.

Actually the Cornucopia doesn't look like this in the books or the movies. But let's just say plenty of tributes die there on the first day for obvious reasons.

4. No song is more iconic in The Hunger Games than “The Hanging Tree.”

Of course, this song is about a guy wanting his girlfriend to commit suicide with him. And it's possible that he might be the guy who murdered three. Happy stuff.

5. Show your love for the Hunger Games by making your own Mockingjay pin.

8. Be like Katniss and make your own bow and arrows.

I think set was used for a Katniss costume if I'm not mistaken. Still, let's nobody shoots anyone's eye out with that.

14. Of course, you can always make your own tracker jacker nest.

Tracker jackers are genetically engineered wasps created by the Capitol to control people. They're fiercely aggressive and their venom causes powerful hallucinations and/or death. You're better off dealing with Africanized killer bees.

24. If you like Finnick, then you’ll like this shell necklace.

Yeah, Finnick may be seen as a pretty boy and ladies' man. However, in reality, he has a girlfriend with PTSD and is forced to whore himself to rich people in the Capitol. Pretty tragic I might say.

25. Grace your table with a white rose from President Snow.

Let's just say if it's white and smells stronger than what a normal rose should, President Snow was probably there. And yes, it's okay to feel uncomfortable about it.

Yes, the girl from District 5 who lasted incredibly long in the Hunger Games without killing or making alliances. However, we're not sure about whether she knew the berries she stole from Peeta were poisonous.

37. If you love District 12, then you’ll like wearing this coal and chain necklace.

Wouldn't think that they'd put a lump of coal on a golden chain. This is especially since that coal is becoming less of a viable energy source because it's an incredibly dirty fossil fuel.

48. Remember Peeta’s love for Katniss with Peeta’s pearl necklace.

Said to contain a replica of a pearl before the arena was destroyed and he was captured by the Capitol. What happened to him after that was just so horrifying.

As far as I can tell, this is made of felt, which doesn't have much elasticity. Then again, perhaps it doubles as a bracelet.
