Or you may use any color found on any tree associated with Dryads including oak, birch, ash, walnut, or apple.

Class, we offer you 2 options for your homework this month. First, Muggles love TeeVee Watching as part of their Fall entertainment. Craft a project associated with this. Examples might include a nice blanket to snuggle under while watching TeeVee or a coffee/tea cozy to decorate the mug holding your pumpkin-flavored drink.

Your second option is a challenge to participate in the study of Muggle Reality TeeVee Shows by crafting an item you would wear or use in your own Reality TeeVee show. Bonus points are available for taking up this challenge and to qualify for them, you must explain how your project fits the show you would produce or star in. Simply name or explain what your show would be about for us. Examples could include a colorful bag to carry your ghost hunting supplies or dishcloths to decorate your own Best Ever Baking Show. Blanket Squares for Lifestyles of the Witch and Famous? Handspun yarn in the signature colors of your show logo for your Spinning With The Stars of Hogwarts? Dyeing Along Diagon Alley or maybe Weaving With Wizards from the B-List?
