Red hair and a hand-me-down robe… must be a Weasley.

I absolutely love the Weasley family. Growing up, I wished I could just jump right into the Burrow and sprout red hair! Mrs. Weasley’s creations were always so cute and cozy that I tell myself to “channel my inner Mrs. Weasley” when I’m making new crafts! (Seriously, try this out at least once… you’ll be surprised how your crafting experience goes 😉 )

One of my absolute favorite things from Harry Potter is the Weasley clock found in the Burrow! I knew I was going to recreate this beauty at one point, and this week couldn’t be a better time as we’ve celebrated a bunch of our favorite red-heads birthdays recently (Julie Walters/Molly – Feb 22nd, James and Oliver Phelps/Fred and George- Feb 25th, and Ron himself- Mar 1st).

Now even though this is the Weasley clock, you could totally substitute pictures of your own family onto it. I daresay, this would make an amazing Mother’s Day present for all the Potterhead moms out here!
