How to Make a Harry Potter House Tie Necklace

Miss 3 of 10 is a magical child. She went to Diagon Alley with her family. Her wand picked her in the Ollivander's show at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Lucky kid!

I wanted to give her a Christmas gift that helped her remember that day (besides the wand souvenir her parents bought her in the gift shop.) Miss 3 of 10's favorite Hogwarts house is Ravenclaw. I made her a Hogwarts house tie necklace for Christmas.

How to Make a Hogwarts House Tie Necklace






You will need:

A sterling silver tie charm and chain
Sandpaper
Craft paint:
  • Gryffindor= red and yellow 
  • Ravenclaw = blue and silver 
  • Hufflepuff = yellow and black
  • Slytherin = green and silver
Paint brush
Dimensional Magic or Aleene's Paper Glaze

I'm doing something a little different. Instead of writing it down, I made a video tutorial!





Soooo Lisa, what's up with the blue hair?

I didn't change my hair from pink to blue. I shot the video for this tutorial last year when I had blue hair. I didn't create the video or post it until this year because I didn't want to ruin Miss 3 of 10's Christmas gift surprise.

She likes her necklace and wears it often.

Make one for every Potterhead on your gift list!
