Month of Magic: DIY’s for Your Own Burrow

MoM_HPBanner-01

In case you haven’t heard: the month of July is dedicated to Harry Potter on AGeekyGal! I’m kicking off the first post with four quotes to live by, straight from the series. If you would like to get in on the madness, go to this master post and follow the instructions. Feel free to use my banner above for your blog post!

Ever since I started planning my wedding, I have been all over Pinterest looking at easy DIY’s I can create to save a little cash. I ran across some Harry Potter wedding DIY’s and got inspired! I collected a few HP DIY decor pieces for everyone to check out. They range from a subtle reference to our beloved fandom to in-your-face-but-totally-still-cool. Take the weekend, and do one of these awesome DIY’s to add some magic to your own burrow.

This super easy wall art by Landeelu has captured my heart. I love the sayings, and you can even make up your own to be silly or inspirational. It’s totally customizable so feature your favorite characters with their own “like-ness” to bring a bit of awesome to a gallery wall, over the bed, or in the office. If you don’t want to DIY it yourself, you can buy one from her Etsy shop here!

Anyone else want to give Hermione’s Time Turner a go? Make your own giant Time Turner inexpensively and simply with Lauren’s tutorial that includes a step-by-step Youtube video. Hang it in your office as a statement piece, hang it as a mobile in the nursery, or hang it outside on the porch and watch it spin to your heart’s content.

I’ve always had a soft spot for dream catchers since I was small, and they make me think of my mom who has a dream catcher tattoo on her shoulder. I saw this one on etsy and looked high and low for a good tutorial to make one at home. That’s when I found My Craftily Ever After and fell in love with her DIY Deathly Hallows dream catcher.

Now for something a little more subtle: the suitcase table. I frequent estate sales and the one thing I see lots of? Old suitcases. This piece could be super affordable to make if you can get a deal on the suitcase. Create this adorable piece to display in your living room or bedroom. Get shorter legs and a larger suitcase to create a coffee table!
