A Harry Potter Christmas Tree: Gryffindor House Points Ornament

I struck gold–or rather rubies at Dollar Tree. An entire pack of rubies at the Dollar Tree and a large ornament to put them in only cost me $2, and this ornament couldn’t be any simpler to make!

Just take the top off of the ornament and put the rubies into the ornament and you’re done! I may glue my top on if I have any trouble, but so far so good! 

I am more of a Hufflepuff myself, but the Gryffindor colors are so Christmasy and fun so this year I did more of a Gryffindor themed tree. One day I’ll have to do a Hufflepuff one. . .
