Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch

a DIY Harry Potter lumos and nox light switch, So COOL!!
It's that time of year when it's my birthday AND it's Harry Potter's. Yep, we almost share a birthday. One of these days I'm going to convince my husband to make me a Harry cake...I know I sound super nerdy, but I love Harry Potter. 


Last year I joined in with Rae from Rae Gun Rambling blog on her Harry Potter celebration where bunch of bloggers get together to share all sorts of Harry Potter goodness around his Birthday. You can see a round up of all the post HERE. You can see my  Alohomora Key Rack post from last year HERE

For today, I'm sharing how to make a Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch. I made one for my in laws (my mother in law is a HUGE fan) and made a test one for me. I wasn't planning on putting it in the kitchen, but my husband put it up one day and there it is still. 


DIY Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch


Supplies:

Stain (we love this dark walnut stain)
Spray Sealant or Polyuthurane 
Or vinyl or contact paper (if using a cutting machine, which isn't necessary but really nice)


1. First stain your wood cover and let it dry according to directions. (Cutting machine users, if using vinyl words instead of painting the words on, spray your sealant FIRST)

2. Prepare your stencil. If you are doing it by hand, print out your lumos font so that the measurements match up with light switch. Trace it onto stencil material and cut out with exacto knife. After the stain has dried, use the stencil to paint the lumos and nox on. Let dry. 

*If using a cutting machine, simply cut out lumos and nox with vinyl or contact paper. You can choose to just use the vinyl letters or you can use the vinyl to make a stencil and then paint the words.

3. After your paint is dry spray your light switch with sealant (if you painted your words on instead of placing vinyl words on). 

And there you go! a really classy Harry Potter Light Switch. It's not too late to enter the big Harry Potter giveaway below:
