Fold An Origami Howler
There are a couple ways to make your own paper Howler, and one is a bit more involved than the other. The first method is 100 percent origami, so if your paper folding skills are on point, then following the step-by-step instructions should be as simple as pronouncing the Wingardium Leviosa correctly. The second method, as outlined by Deviantart user mizutamari, requires eight to 10 pieces of 24-gauge floral wire, bow-making and silky ribbons, rag paper, and various adhesives. It will probably take considerably longer than the origami howler, but the finished product is more than worth it.

Harry Potter Props Costumes Head To Chicago Museum
Harry Potter is heading to a Chicago museum where fans will get a glimpse of props and costumes from the blockbuster films in a massive exhibit set to open in April, organizers announced Thursday.
“We are delighted that fans will finally have the opportunity to see, in person, some of their favorite props and costumes,” said David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter films.
“We are looking forward to audiences enjoying the care, creativity and attention to detail involved in their making, just as we do each and every day on set.”
Tickets have already gone on sale for the 10,000-square-foot exhibit featuring elaborate displays set in Hagrid’s Hut, the Gryffindor common room and other popular film locations.
The exhibit will run through September 7, 2009 at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry before heading off on an international tour.
It will be updated to include props and costumes from the final installments of the Harry Potter film series once production is completed.

Pensieve From Harry Potter
For Halloween the last few years, we’ve decorated the house in a Harry Potter theme. This, of course, requires making many interesting props to entertain the Trick or Treaters. For example, the Animatronic Fawkes the Phoenix I made last year. One of the most popular props we’ve made is a Pensieve. As you may remember, the Pensieve is a vessel which stores memories. The memories can be viewed by sticking your head into the large misty bowl. My Pensieve is made by creating a large glass bowl arrangement sitting over a laptop playing one of the Harry Potter movies. Pretty simple, but very effective.
- Wood and Plywood-to build the enclosure the Pensieve will sit upon.
- Plexiglas sheet
- Spray Paint or other means of decoration
- Glass Bowl .- Thrift stores are a great source of these. The fancier, the better.
- Hot glue or clear silicone caulk
- One of the Harry Potter movies , but the 3rd one is pretty good too.)
- Plastic Bags
- Dry ice-can be found at some supermarkets, party supply stores or ice companies

The Best Props For A Harry Potter Photo Booth:
To stick with the theme I had to create a Have you seen this wizard prop.
The ones I found online were white with black writing.
Since the backdrop we created was was mostly white, I thought it would be fun to create an inverted version with white being the text and black as the poster.
I used a Harry Potter font found at Creative Market and my cricut to create the wording.
All you need to do from there is cut out a square for the kids to stick their head through.

If You Worked On The Harry Potter Movies Why Wouldn’t You Take A Few Collectibles Home
Oldrich/shutterstockIf youre a Harry Potter fan, at some point you have imagined what it would be like to live in the Wizarding Worldplaying Quidditch, drinking Butterbeer with Harry and the gang, the possibilities are endless.
At the very least, youve wanted to bring some part of that magical universe into our world. Maybe a flying car when youre running late or an invisibility cloak to hide from the coworker who hates you. Luckily for costume designer Jany Temime, she got to do just that.
Temime designed costumes for the third through eighth Harry Potter films, so she has the scoop on exactly what went down behind the scenes . But during her time on set, she also scooped up a few, uh, one-of-a-kind souvenirs once filming wrapped.
Willi Schneider/REX/ShutterstockThe first thing she took was an invitation to the Yule Ball from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. These never made it into the film, but Temime says they looked sort of an origami of a light blue flower when they opened up. How could you say no to an invite like that?
Temime even stole some of her own work: ties from each of the four houses at Hogwarts and, the pièce de résistance, Harrys original scarf. Now, youd think with an item of such cinematic and historical value would be kept on display in a pristine glass case in Temimes home, right? Nope. She keeps it around her neck.

The time has come! Place your faux brick wall where youd like the photo booth to be. You can either stand the cardboard up on its own, or nail it to the wall using a hammer and small nails or brads. I nailed mine to the wall because it needed to be taller, and the only way to make it taller was to suspend it a foot off the ground.

Diy Harry Potter House Badges
In this Instructable, we will be making Harry Potter House Badges. There is a variety of different ways to make these, varying in difficulty and material. For the most part however, house badges are made from either metal or fabric. This Instructable will teach you how to make a fabric-looking house badge for little or no cost at all. This method also accommodates any experience level or time constraint, taking as little as five minutes to an hour to make. Today we will be showing you 2 main styles of badge all from the same material but each badge takes a different amount of time and skill to make.Note- The second picture is an example of the official badge we are modeling after and is not a badge I personally made.
Mask The Brick Mortar With Tape
Now, this part can get tedious. So put on your favorite Harry Potter tunes and keep imagining the finished productyou can do it! I think this is the tape I used, but any similar tape should work fine:
Take your roll of masking tape in one hand and your box cutter in the other. Be careful with this step! Run the box cutter along the middle of the tape to cut into it several layers deep, until youve made a cut around the entire circumference of the tape. The goal here is for the cuts to be uneven so that the strips of tape make the brick mortar look realisticnot perfect.
Peel strips of tape off one by one and begin masking out horizontal rows with the tape. I eyeballed my rows, but you can use a measuring tape to keep the rows even. I placed each row of tape about 5 inches apart. You will need to alternate between taping rows and cutting new grooves into the tape.
You can see here how the strips of masking tape are a little jagged from when I cut down the center of the tape roll with my box cutter. This is the desired effect.
Once you have all the rows taped on, add shorter strips of tape in vertical lines to separate the bricks. Unfortunately I dont have a photo of this step, but you get the idea. Here is a good example of how to apply your tape in a brick pattern. Alternate with long bricks and short bricks. Historic Panorama has some good examples of this brick technique.
