Harry Potter Party

 I used the flyers to cover up my Welcome to my home vinyl decal on this wall.

 The top right is a map of London and a brick curtain my husband sewed .

I made the 9 3/4 sign by painting a circle piece of plywood I got at Michaels for $1 and added vinyl

to purchase vinyl at Etsy store.

The dining room we made into Diagon Alley

 The Three Broom Sticks

 I order the Butterbeer off of Amazon.

All the glass wear I got from the dollar store and the stickers from

 Sticker from Zazzle and postcard picture from Zazzle also.  The Sign I made and the wands are from

 I took a 24x24 box and cut the opening and the back put 

We made the frogs ourselves with using a frog mold I ordered from Amazon.

 Each invite also had a train ticket for Platform 9 3/4

For our kids we put the invites in the fireplace

They already picked the house they wanted to be in.  Although we still had them do the hat sorting.

Each place set had a card that told of the traits of that house.

The black plastic plate I got from Walmart in a pack of 4 for $1 then added
 the house stickers from Zazzle.

I made the banner by buying a plain black banner for $5 at Hobby Lobby
The house ties are stickers I ordered

  The flag I purchased from ebay

 This is our Dobby

  Sorting hat and broom  from Amazon

  All the items are thing my son had collected


Wings for flying keys

 All the sign I made

We had a baby monitor on the table behind then and my husband was
in the kitchen speaking as the hat

 Then they got their ties
Which I got on ebay.  I paid less by ordering from a company in China but it took
 2 months for them to get here. So order early.

You can't tell but my shirt says Muggle

I just printed out this tags and then used mod podge to stick them on.

Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
