Next in the HP series is Cups / Trophies, specifically the Triwizard Cup and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup. The Triwizard Cup was made in 1294, the date when the tournament was established. The Hufflepuff Cup was a magical, golden cup with a badger engraved on the side and was the fourth horcrux created by Voldemort.

  4. Paint over the letters with the metallic zinc and let dry.
  5. Use the hot glue gun to draw a curve going down the neck to the base of the trophy, indicating a dragon tail. On both handles draw thick lines going down and a huge thick drop on top of the handles for the dragon’s body and face. On either side of the letters WIZ draw thin lines from the bottom of the body till 1/2 inch below the letters. Let dry.
