A Magical Craft Project!

I've been waiting a while to write this post! So..if you know my sister you know she is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. Seriously. And this year she turned 21 and I decided that I should finally give her a birthday present. But instead of going out and buying something lame. I wanted to make something...from the heart, ya know? I know, I'm a pretty great big sister. I knew I wanted it to be Harry Potter themed, and I had recently made some adorable wreaths so I decided a Harry Potter wreath would be AWESOME! 

This project took me a whole lot longer than I thought it would, but it was because I am a perfectionist and annoying detail-oriented when it comes to crafties. So here is the finished project

Here are some of the details:

A sweet wand that I made!
A cool green glittery snake!
The crowning glory! The Golden Snitch!

The snitch probably took me the most time, but I was really meticulous about it. I wrapped the whole wreath form in pages of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and other details included a background of Hogwarts castle, a picture of Harry, Ron and Hermione, Harry's glasses, broomsticks (made to look the the Nimbus 2000 and 2001), a letter form Hogwarts, the Hogwarts crest, and the symbol of the deathly hallows.

I honestly had so much fun making this and I think Mandy really liked it!

I'm thinking of posting the tutorial on making your very own wand...we shall see. 


  1. That turned out awesome!

  2. Kelsie! This is amazing! I love every detail of it!

  3. I love the wreath. And thanks for posting the worst picture of me of all time.

  4. Aw, it looks like she's about to cry! Nice, Kelsie!
