Quick and easy handmade Harry Potter Studio Tours souvenir #HarryPotter #HalloweenDecoration #GalleryWall

Halloween is all about magic and Harry Potter is arguably the most famous magical reference this side of Salem. So with the summer holidays upon us and 6 LONG weeks to fill, you might be planning an early Halloween fix at London’s Warner Bros. Studios.

If you’re a fan like me, you’ll be wanting a souvenir. Well of course! But you don’t need to spend a fortune to bring home a great memento of your visit.

Not that I have any idea how much things cost, because I STILL haven’t been!

Hard to believe, I know.

This project is so simple it hardly warrants an explanation. Other than to say that since I haven’t yet been fortunate enough to get to the Harry Potter Studios (*cough* Beloved *cough* hint), you might be wondering how I managed to make a Gryffindor souvenir of a trip I’ve not yet made.

Although if you’ve been paying close attention, you’ll know that I’m repeating myself.

It’s my age.

This quirky piece of artwork took mere minutes to make and is worthy of any Potter Head’s gallery wall. Consisting of just three items, it’s made up of a Gryffindor patch mounted on some Platform 9¾ tissue paper, encased in a black frame.

It really is that simple!

Of course, you’ll no doubt recognise the gothic fairy door but the wands are a couple of my other creations. I haven’t blogged about them yet because I want to make more, but you may remember seeing them among the witchy tools I made for my Chamber of Secrets Harry Potter keepsake box.

I’ll wager you can pick up Gryffindor memorabilia from the Studio Tour, there’s certainly plenty on the online shop,  but this particular Gryffindor patch came with a cloak that Beloved uses for his Halloween costume.

As for the tissue paper, well that really was from Diagon Alley, having been used to wrap a real live, genuine Warner Bros. souvenir. Only not mine. The Bestie attended a posh work do at the Studios and thoughtfully saved the tissue paper for me.

Oh no. She didn’t buy me a souvenir. Worse still, she DIDN’T TAKE ME WITH HER! I mean… it was only work! But she did save me the tissue paper.

I’m not bitter.

Suffice to say she is still paying for that almighty faux pas!

A hui hou,
