Even muggles can make a little magic.

Is there a crafting course at Hogwarts? It seems like there should be. Maybe Professor McGonagall could teach it — no wands required, of course! Lucky for her, we've already put together a full class of Harry Potter-inspired crafting projects, just in time to celebrate Harry Potter Day on May 2!

Hogwarts House Bookmarks

Easy-Harry-Potter-bookmarks

Red Ted Art

Let’s be real, the Harry Potter books are long! Make sure you don’t lose your place and miss out on any of the magical adventures with these chevron bookmarks. You can make a bookmark for each house, or get sorted for yourself over on the official Wizarding World website and make a bookmark to match your house colors. Grab all of the details and the instructions over on Red Ted Art.

Mandrake Root Clay Crafts

Mandrakes

Artsy Fartsy Mama

The best part about these adorable little mandrake clay crafts? They are incapable of an ear-piercing scream, unlike their counterparts in the Harry Potter books. The mandrakes do keep their hilariously grumpy expressions, however, which comes together using some polymer clay. Head over to Artsy-Fartsy Mama to get the step-by-step instructions and make a mandrake that would impress Professor Sprout.

Monster Book of Monsters Notebook Cover

Ikat Bag

Remind me again why The Monster Book of Monsters isn't kept in the restricted section of the library? Thankfully, your look-alike creation will be all bark and no bite. This tutorial from Ikat Bag will show you how to make a ferocious cover for a mini notebook full of post-it notes. Want to make one that will cover a full book? Measure the book and follow the tutorial, just making the proportions bigger.

No-Sew Hogwarts House Scarves

Harry-Potter-Birthday-Party-51

Michelle's Party Plan-It

When you're cheering for your house to catch the snitch during a Quidditch match, the last thing you want to worry about is keeping warm. Luckily, these DIY no-sew house scarves will do the trick, all while letting you show off your house spirit. Not sure which one to make? Head over to the Wizarding World website to get sorted and let the hat do its magic! 

DIY Harry Potter Wands

Vintage Kitty

Ollivander might not be around to match you with a personalized wand, but these DIY clay wand look-alikes from Vintage Kitty do a pretty good job of replicating the magic. Not only do these wands basically look like the real thing, but they also light up — perfect for practicing that Lumos spell! Once your wand is dry and ready to go, you better practice your "swish and flick" technique to make Hermione proud.

Time Turner Necklace

time-turner-inspired-necklace

30 Minute Crafts

If you had access to Hermione's time turner, what would you do with your additional time during the day? While you might not be able to make a time turner that lets you jump through the magical universe, you can make one just like it and pretend you are taking all the exciting classes at Hogwarts right beside Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The project is a little more complicated and requires a patient hand, so it is great for that teen who's patiently waiting for their Hogwarts acceptance letter. Grab all the details over on 30 Minute Crafts

DIY Harry Potter Prophecy Ball

Prophecy-Ball-Close-up

More Than Thursdays

Want to see what the future holds? This DIY prophecy ball, just like the ones from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, might be able to give you some insight. The DIY prophecy gets its realistic look from combining water, food color, and a bunch of cotton balls. While it may not be full of wizarding magic, it will definitely play a magical trick on the eyes. Channel your inner Professor Trelawney and check out the directions over on More Than Thursdays.

Harry Potter Paper Roll Craft

Crocheted Hedwig

5 Little Monsters

Channel your inner Molly Weasley and pull out your crochet needles to make this adorable little stuffed Hedwig. While this snowy owl will be no help in the mail department like the true Hedwig, it will be just as cute. 5 Little Monsters even includes a pattern to make a removable scarf for the owl — just in case she gets cold on all of her long journeys.
