Crafts Suggestions

Electronic Crafts

Add some gold/bronze/silver to the image (Hufflepuff can stay black, of course), like the avatar maker did for its own.

Découpage

Print the picture on a label sheet (you can first transform it electronically like above), cut out the white parts and stick it on your Christmas ball. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to protect the paper and add decorations (fake snow, glitter, etc.).

Glass etching

In this case you will need to cut out the black piece and keep the white ones. But you can glass etch on a Christmas ball, or even on a wine glass, simply by following the etching cream manufacturer’s instructions or by reading this tutorial.

Shrinky Dinks

Make sure you buy the printer safe pack (they’ll read For Computer Inkjet Printers) and print your pictures on them, making sure they are bigger than the final size you wish to obtain. Cut out the shape and before you bake them, pierce a hole somewhere on the picture (you can leave a small shape on above your picture so you don’t puncture a hole right in the badger’s head!). Then once they’re baked, you can add a small string to it and hang your house mascot in your Christmas tree, or even make some sort of mobile with it.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron’s Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.

On that note, Harry crafting to all!
