Bookish Crafts {1}

Right up there with my love for reading, I have a love for crafting and design. So the past few weeks I have been looking up projects that combine the two.

The first project I found on Pinterest. With the recent release of the last Harry Potter movie on DVD I felt a bit sad. It wasn't until the release of the 3rd movie that I got into Harry Potter and ever since then I have looked forward to each new movie every year. Now what am I going to look forward to next year (other than The Hunger Games)?
Well, I have decided to have a Harry Potter party. It is going to be 3 days, like one day a week for three weeks. And each day some friends and I will get together and are going to watch a couple of the movies, eat some food and just have fun.
So I have been looking up ideas for the party and I thought this would be an appropriate first project since everything at Hogwarts starts with an owl dropping off an acceptance letter to you.

At first I was thinking of handing them out as invitations, but I settled on having them set by the door as a "Welcome To My Awesome Harry Potter Party" note.
All you need is white balloons, one for each of your guest (and yourself, of course), white ribbon, a permanent marker, and notes to attach at the bottom. Oh, and I guess helium if you want them to float. All of that can be found at your local Walmart.
I haven't done this yet, so I'm not sure if it would be easier to draw the design on before or after blowing the balloon up, so I think I will try both.
Pretty snazzy though, right?

What with the holiday season being upon us I think I will have this party after the first of the year, so if you have any Harry Potter party ideas, let me know about them! And I will also post more when I find some other good ones to do.

Happy Crafting!


  1. I love the idea . I think they would look so good at the door when the guests arrive :)I hope you have a wonderful party.
