Harry Potter Chapter Ornaments

Harry potter chapter ornaments

While I love the idea of decorating using literature, I find the idea of destroying a book, even an old one, abhorrent. This idea, however, is completely possible to do without cutting into a single page of a book! The chapter illustrations in the Harry Potter books is very unique to the series, and a great way to customize your tree to some of your favorite chapters!

Harry Potter Chapter Ornaments

You will need:

  • Clear ornament balls
  • Tweezer (Optional, but helpful)
  • Cotton balls or printout of pages*
  • Printout of favorite chapter illustrations*

Instructions:

1. You will start with a little homework. Google search “Harry Potter Chapter Illustrations” and select your favorite illustrations, then copy and paste them into a word document. Re-size each image so that they are no larger than 3 inches tall or wide (or smaller, if you have smaller ornament balls). Print out and cut out each illustration.

2. To keep the image in place, you will want to fill the ornament behind the image. You can fill it with “Snow” by shredding cotton balls, or, you can fill it with pages of the book. Please, don’t cut up a book!!! Instead google search pages of the book and print out the images, or take a picture of a few pages, place the image in a word doc, and print that out. Cut the pages into 1/4 inch strips and roll up so they are curly.

3. First, roll the illustration and fit into the ornament (if you have an ornament that opens into two halves, this is even better! When filling the ornament, having a tweezer is convenient, as the illustration doesn’t stay in place. As you continue adding the filling, use the tweezer to move the illustration back into place. Continue adding more until the ornament is full.

4. Hang on your tree and enjoy that no books were harmed in this DIY!

 

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
  • “Oh Chucky look at us. We belong dead”
Last one of Tiffany.... which iconic horror villain should I do next? Tell me your favorites! #horrormovies #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #horrorfan
  • “I’ll kill anybody, but I’ll only sleep with someone I love.”
A girl has to have standards!!! 😂
Personally I loved Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, how about you? #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #chuckycosplay
  • "Barbie, eat your heart out."
You can't do Chucky without Tiffany! I apparently have super thick eyebrows because I felt they were incredibly difficult to cover properly, though I probably just need more practice blocking them out. I also know the doll didn't have bangs, but the actress did, so I felt like this blonde wig still did the trick. #brideofchucky #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #tiffanyvalentine #cosplay
