DIY Harry Potter Series – Triwizard mini dragons and HP symbols / signs

Mini Dragons: You will need mini dragon figurines from Michaels (See link: Safari Ltd – Dragons). You can get them for $3-$4 with a coupon. I used images from Harry Potter Wiki to work on the features and details of each dragon.

  1. Common Welsh Green: A green dragon with gold extremities.
  2. Chinese Fireball: A red dragon with gold extremities and grey spikes.
  3. Hungarian Horntail: A black dragon with metallic bronze horns, yellow eyes and spikes (use metallic black to add a sheen to the dragon).                                                         IMG_3822
  4. Swedish Short Snout: Silvery blue dragon with silver spikes and blue extremities.               IMG_3755

Deathly Hallows Symbol: This is pretty easy to do. Print out a small deathly hallows symbol in black / white (based on the size of your ornament) from google images. Use mod podge to stick the image to a white ornament. Use 2 coats and let dry for 30 mins between each.IMG_2152

HP Logo: Again, use google images to get an idea of the font and draw it on a red ornament with a black sharpie. Once it dries, paint over it with gold metallic paint and let dry. Add a thin coat of mod podge and dry.                                                                                             IMG_1821

Hogwarts Sign: I used some letter tiles from Michael’s that I strung using brown twine. Paint the letters with the colors from the 4 houses (red, yellow, green, blue).                          IMG_1988IMG_2101
