Now, who is ready for the ultimate gifts for your favorite Potterhead?

Harry Potter Corner Bookmark

I think we all know that Harry Potter has started a fashion trend for people everywhere from his robes to his signature style glasses. He may not know it and we may not know it, but we all obviously know one way or another. I know that sounds super confusing, but it is the dead honest truth around here in Hogwarts.

These Harry Potter Corner Bookmarks are THE CUTEST THING EVER! Everything about it is so cute. They are so easy to make and everybody will fall in love with your brand new bookmark. It even has Harry’s glasses and the scar from He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named! If you aren’t in your favorite house, you can always change out the colors!

Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff? Smash it together and call it Ravenpuff. Or Huffleclaw. I don’t care what you call it. Just be creative and be yourself.


 We are all still waiting for our acceptance letters from Hogwarts, but it is never too late to start training with a brand new magic wand. Shh, you have to keep it a secret though. No magic in the Muggle world.

These wands actually look like real wands! It is so crazy, but I am pretty sure we are all thrilled about the great news. Go to the nearest craft store that supports wizards and witches in training, I suppose they all do. If they didn’t, that would be extremely dumb. Buy supplies and start to make your magic wand!

Just don’t turn around and be a dark wizard.

That is just wrong.

Why do you want to live in the darkness when you can enter the light

Acceptance Letters to Hogwarts


No, I do not think that they have actually built a real Hogwarts where you can go and train to be a wizard.

We can all dream though. *sighs happily*

Even though we all dream of going to Hogwarts one day, we all know that our acceptance letters are still on the way in advance. Why not get your letter right now? Yes! You heard me right! You can get your acceptance letter right now!

By clicking the picture on the side, you will be accessed to a page where you can make your letter, in secret of course, and give it to a Potterhead. Just tell them that Dumbledore mailed it himself.

Because Dumbledore really did and it people say otherwise, do a spell on them with your new magic wand. Spells solve everything.

Golden Snitch

I am pretty sure that we have all grabbed these types of chocolate and pretended that it was the golden snitch. If you have, raise your wands and wave them in the air!

When you click on the picture, it will lead you to print out a printable of golden snitch wings! All you have to do is get the chocolate and paper. Before you know it you have a golden snitch right in the palm of your hand.

Just don’t let it melt.

Because chocolate tends to melt.

Know what I mean?

If you do make this, enjoy your time and have fun with your very own golden snitch. Then you can eat it just like Harry Potter almost did.

I said ALMOST everybody! He actually didn’t eat it. He just threw it up.

Deathly Hallows Logo Tutorial

Last but certainly not least, we have this STUNNING tutorial of the Deathly Hallows logo! I think that it is super cute and it is perfect for any Potterhead, even if you don’t support the evil wizards and He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. It will bring light to your room or you will be left in eternal darkness forever and ever.

Just kidding. These are just for decoration.

I want to say thank you to all of the amazing people who made these adorable DIY Harry Potter gifts! They all did amazing jobs and they are all so magical. For littler Potterheads, you may want adult supervision when you are doing these crafts. They may or may not have supplies that you are allowed to use yet.

In celebration of the opening day of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, here is the trailer that you may or may not have seen for the millionth time already. Enjoy and have a magical day everybody!

Remember to write a Harry Potter themed post and use the hashtag #FantasticFridayChallenge! Don’t forget to use the logo at the beginning of the post too! And remember to invite your fellow Potterheads in on the magical action!

Did I cover everything?

Yes I did.

What’s up Potterheads? Are you joining on the #Fantastic FridayChallenge? If so, comment down the link to your Harry Potter themed post when you are done! I can’t wait to see all of your Harry Potter themed posts!

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

  1. Love it!! GREAT post! I really want to make the bookmarks. I’m not a craft-y person, but those I can handle, lol! I just made a huge floating letter display for my library’s Harry Potter program, it was pretty cool!
