It’s time again for a new craft tutorial!

This month I was inspired to do something a little out of the ordinary. Usually I create a craft, tape myself making it, and upload specific instructions and a supply list for you to create the craft. Today, I want to present you with an idea I had and how you can make your own twist on it!

Like many of you, I set fresh goals for 2018. To keep myself accountable for achieving them, I wanted to display them in an inspiring way that I would see them every day. Take a look at the video below to see what I came up with (I’m absolutely in love with this idea!):


  1. There are tons of cute Harry Potter backgrounds to use online. I Googled “Hogwarts aesthetic” and found a ton!

Here’s the link to backdrop photo that I referenced in the video:–hogwarts-aesthetic-hufflepuff-pride.jpg (have no idea why it’s titled Hufflepuff pride, it has nothing to do with Hufflepuff specifically)

  1. If you’re interested in overlaying text on a photo, Canva is a great tool to use. I create all my graphics with it!
  2. You can make your Mirror of Erised any size. As promised in the video, here are some that you can purchase:
