You applaud your dungeon master for their hard work and effort of course! Dungeons & Dragons is a tabletop role-playing game that primarily takes place in the theater-of-the-mind, but every now and then a physical prop or two can really enrich a game setting.

Whether it's something as simple as DIY healing potions that are made with a candle wax, dice, and a glass bottle, or a waterfall made out of toilet paper and PVA there's something for everyone to emulate to elevate their D&D game. Vote up the D&DIYs you want to attempt yourself!

    From Redditor /u/Cvpt1ve:

    Made a Potion of Healing because my table always forgets how much healing each bottle can do.

     It is red candle wax, white candle wax on top to make the foam and then I sealed it with an epoxy resin. That keeps the dice clean and they also won’t damage the wax.

    This Waterfall Is Toilet Paper!

    From Redditor /u/Marked1975:

    For this diorama, I made a waterfall using toilet paper and a mixture of PVA and water. [For the pond], just some toilet paper and watered down glue (same technique as my waterfall). After it dries I painted then added a few coats of glossy modge podge. Oh and I used some cotton to make the splash.

    From Redditor /u/Khatjal:

    One of our group's players made this for our game room wall. The number has yet to go up... 

    Not twenty minutes after hanging this sign up, the bard casts fireball, killing a teenager who was trying to trick the party out of gold by dressing up in a black robe while holding a scythe.

    I was hoping the sign would be a reminder. I was horribly, horribly over optimistic.
