DIY Harry Potter Christmas Tree | Free Printable Ornaments

Aside from Harry Potter being a captivating magical fantasy, the stories also live in the realm of both Halloween and Christmas.

Perhaps it’s the Enchanted Ceiling’s snowfall and twinkling lights in the Great Hogwarts Hall on Christmas, or the snow-covered walks around the castle grounds that captivate our imagination; or just maybe it’s the spark of magic we feel in our hearts during the holidays. Whatever way you look at it, Harry Potter has that Christmas feeling.

So it’s only natural that the idea of doing a Harry Potter themed tree would pop in my head, and a quick trip to the craft store only further ignited my want for this tree.

This is my first time doing a themed tree. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but felt intimidated by. But once I got started, it was easier than I thought, and the creativity drove me forward!

The whole thing came out far better than I could have imagined, and it was so fun crafting all of the ornaments. I’m thinking maybe I should do a different theme every year. What do you guys think?

Ornament Printables

I made all of my ornaments by hand using scrapbooking paper, a pencil, exacto knife, and Pigma pen; but I wanted to include something for those who would like a much easier, and less time consuming option. So, I designed these just for you!

If you have the time to craft the ornaments, I suggest using the printable’s as a stencil or drawing guide. Then picking up an exacto knife, Pigma pen and craft/scrapbooking paper to add a little personal touch.
