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
and my pet toad
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.|
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. TUTORIAL HERE to make your own wandsPin It
For my wand I wrapped some twine around it to give it a more feminine look (like Hermiones).
Are we Harry Potter nerds? Yes. And we're still waiting for our Hogwarts letter....

|My Wand - oak with phoenix feather|
