It’s December & that means Harry Potter Christmas crafts! There’s no better way to let visitors know their entering a wizard home then by hanging your own Deathly Hallows Christmas wreath!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Wired green garland
- Floral wire
- Needle-nose pliers (these aren’t absolutely necessary, but do come in hand when you’re bending wire)
- Miniature Christmas decorations
- Command hangers (if you’re planning on hanging up on a door)
- Determine the size of the circle you want and cut the wire using your wire-cutters (resurrection stone area)
- Use floral wire to secure the circle closed
- Wrap the foliage around the wire base to make it into a clean circle shape
- Using your circle as a guide, measure and cut out your triangle shape using your wire-cutters (invisibility cloak area)
- The garland I used had a wire loop at both ends for easy hanging so I made sure to use one of those ends for the very top of my triangle.
- Using the floral wire, attach your circle to your triangle
- Using your triangle as a guide, measure and cut out your straight line using your wire-cutters (elder wand area)
- Using your wire-cutters, remove the excess foliage from your straight piece
- Using the floral wire, attach your straight piece to your triangle at the top bottom and once to the inner circle piece
- Using your wire-cutters, remove some of the excess foliage from your wreath
- Wrap the foliage around the wire base of the triangle and circle shapes to clean them up and create gaps, making the finished shape visible
- Add your decorations
- I used miniature Christmas bulbs for my wreath, but a set of battery operated lights would look good too
- Using the floral wire, attach the bulbs to your wreath
- You could also use the green ornament hooks to attach them
- Since I was going to be hanging this wreath outside, I did wrap the wire around the wreath instead of just hanging my bulbs on it to be sure they wouldn’t fall off
