Hogwarts House Ornaments

Harry Potter House Ornaments 3

During the sorting ceremony, the sorting hat always pays homage to the four houses of Hogwarts: Griffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. These ornaments are a great way to represent the houses in your decor!

You will need:

  • Clear ornament globes
  • Construction paper in: red, yellow, black, blue, tan, green and white/grey
  • House Crest Printout (Free download here)
  • Tweezers
  • Scissors

Instructions:

1. Start by placing all sheets of construction paper together and cutting the construction paper into 1/4 inch strips. You will need to use one sheet of each color listed above, except for yellow, which will require two sheets. For these four ornaments, I used half of page of each color (yellow was 1 full sheet).

2. Curl up the strips from both ends to make the strip as curly as possible and separate into piles of each color.

3. Print out the house crests. These fit nicely for 3 inch ornaments, however, you can find the crests with a google search and size in microsoft word to your desired size. Err on the smaller side, an cut each out.

4. I got my ornaments from Bullseye’s Playground at Target for $3 which only had an opening in the top. If you have a similar ornament, you will need to roll up the crest to get it inside, then use the tweezers to maneuver it to the side. Then, continue filling with the curly strips of construction paper that associate with each house. Keep moving the crest to keep it in place, as it will slide down and move until you have the ornament at least half full.

You can also avoid that frustration with ornaments that open into halves, like these!

6. Seal or close your ornament and hang!

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!

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
