HP Day 14: Hogwarts Supply list

Are you ready for your year at Hogwarts? Have you gone to Diagon Alley to get your supplies? If not, you can find a full supply list here (that is if you've lost your Hogwarts letter). Here are some of my supplies that I've rounded up:
Uniform: Black robes and House Scarf 
Books
Wand
Cauldron
and my pet toad

 Hogwarts Textbooks
A couple of months ago I was at our local library and they were giving away all these old books. I snagged a few hardcover ones thinking I could possibly make them into something new. Well, this month I came up with the idea of making Hogwart text books. With a little paint, word, and modge podge, I came up with these books. 
and I LOVE how they turned out. 
The book I used for A History of Magic just happen to have a witch on the cover like it was meant to be a magical book. 
Wands
Here are our wands. We found some sticks out back and Brigg carved a couple of wands for the both of us.  Then after a little sanding and some lacquer (or modge podge works) we had ourselves some nice looking wands.  Super easy and durable.
Brigg's Wand - willow with dragon heartstring
For my wand I wrapped some twine around it to give it a more feminine look (like Hermiones).
My Wand - oak with phoenix feather

Are we Harry Potter nerds? Yes. And we're still waiting for our Hogwarts letter....

  4. How cute. My Mom made her front foryer similar to the wall in Hogwarts with the Ministry Decrees (rules) wall in Order of the Phoenix. This is such a cute idea! Stopping by way of Sugar Bee's linky party.
