After seeing the new Fantastic Beasts movie and hearing about Harry Potter themed ornaments, I thought I would give making a Harry Potter themed Christmas tree a go. I found great stuff to begin the project at the Dollar Tree.
I found some ornaments ready to put straight onto the tree and other craft items which inspired me to make some of my own ornaments. Here are a few ornaments which will adorn my Harry Potter Christmas tree this year!
- White/Silver Stag: Harry Potter’s patronus is a stag so this shimmery ornament has a magical look which makes it perfect for a Harry Potter themed tree.
- Lantern: Hagrid often guided Harry and his friends out into the Forbidden Forest with lanterns, so I felt it was only appropriate to adorn the tree with a few lanterns.
- Owl: Since owls deliver the post at Hogwarts, these ornaments are a fun and inexpensive ornament to put on the tree. You may want to remove a few of the Christmas extras on the owls or keep them festive in honor of Christmas, but you really can’t go wrong for only $1.
In my next post I’ll share the items I gathered to make custom Harry Potter Christmas tree ornaments using craft supplies from the Dollar Tree.
