Cardstock (red and yellow)
A copy of one of the Harry Potter books
Gold paint
Small paintbrush
Sponge brush
Access to a photocopier
Mod Podge or other decoupage medium
Plain picture frame
Masking tape

Tape off the glass portion of the frame so that you don’t get paint or the decoupage medium on it. Copy pages from a Harry Potter book and tear them up. Tear up pieces of cardstock.

Start placing pieces of the paper on the frame until you have it covered and you think it looks good.

Cover with the decoupage medium using a sponge brush. Let dry according to the bottle directions.

Use the gold paint and a paintbrush to add initials or other embellishments. Let dry.

Author's Note: Make sure to do this in a well ventilated area, as the fumes from the decoupage medium are strong.

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 licenses to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterward. 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!
