Did you know that Harry Potter's birthday was just a couple of weeks ago? We celebrated by checking out the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Play in New York and today I am sharing a fun Harry Potter Craft idea. New York is one of my favorite cities to visit and when I visit it is usually just for a weekend. This post contains affiliate links.
We saw the play the day before Harry Potter's birthday and I was excited to see the play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on the book by J. K Rowland. I had not read the book and was excited to see the story at Hogwarts unfold.
By the way, if you are planning on seeing the play, you need to know that it is in two parts. So you either attend two nights in a row or attend a matinee and then again in the evening in order to see the play in its entirety. One of the cool things about the play is the decor in the Lyric theatre that was fully decked out in Potter-esque decor. To see the craft idea, just scroll below.
The play was fabulous and I can't say enough about the cast members and the incredible effects that take place on the stage and in the theater, in front of your own eyes. There is no movie magic here, only lights, staging, and incredible performances. IF you are a Harry Potter fan, you should go see it!
So today I am sharing a fun summer craft idea. This is also a fun activity if you are hosting a Harry Potter movie marathon,
This project takes only a few minutes and like all craft projects, it goes quicker if you have ll of your materials ready.
- Kunin Felt Craft Cuts – Cream, Gold, Burgundy and Walnut
- Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue – Fine Tip
- Dimensional Fabric Paint – Black
- Glitter Glue - Gold
- Permanent Marker – Fine Tip
- Computer and Printer
Just, follow the step by step directions below to create a Harry Potter felt bookmark in just about 30 minutes to celebrate this son of the House of Gryffindor.
Download patterns, print and cut out with scissors. Trace patterns on felt with fine tip permanent marker according to directions included on the pattern sheet.
Attach two cream circles together with glue to create the head and then attach the hair to the top of the head.
Fringe the bottom edge of the burgundy rectangle with scissors but cutting narrow sections.
Attach Harry’s head to the top of the burgundy scarf with glue.
Attach gold rectangles to scarf with glue. Overlap the first rectangle on the bottom of Harry’s chin, and then leave ¾” burgundy sections between each of the five remaining gold rectangles.
Draw glasses on Harry’s face with black dimensional fabric paint. Two circles with a curved line attaching the circles. Let dry.
Draw Harry’s lightning bolt scar on the forehead with gold glitter glue. Let dry.
Here is a detailed photo of Harry’s head:
Create this quick and easy Harry Potter felt bookmark with the kiddos and share the wonderful experience of reading! This is also the perfect craft idea for a sleepover or as a fun birthday party favor.
