If you need an excuse to incorporate Harry Potter into your life, there’s always going to be one. Need something to do for Halloween? Go dine at Hogwarts for a spooktacular feast. Yearning to transform your space? Decorate with this magical home collection. Looking for your next novel? New books galore!
And with the holidays fast approaching, your latest excuse might be needing a gift for your fellow wizard (or yourself). Well, for low on cost and high on originality, we present to you this DIY Harry Potter advent calendar.
Etsy shop My Sweet Paper Card is selling this Wizard Advent Calendar for muggles to give and receive around the holidays. All you need is a color printer, thick paper, scissors, and some glue or double-sided tape.
Here’s how it works: After paying $11.90, you receive a digital file that includes 24 box prints and instructions. All the boxes are different shapes and sizes, from the smallest being 65 mm x 65 mm to the largest of 65 mm x 150 mm.
Once you’ve printed everything out, it’s time to get crafty. Like the product page specifically mentions, you will receive thorough instructions once you purchase the project, which has gotten 847 reviews and an average of five stars.
Representing the free spirits of Fred and George Weasley, these boxes come in a wide range of designs, from mimicking candy like “Nosebleed Nougat” and “Fever Fudge” to magic shop items like “Anti-Gravity Hats.” All you have to do is fill them with your choice of treat and voila! You’ve got a box to open for the first 24 days of December.
There’s no way to put it: This DIY project is bloody brilliant. And since it’s entirely digital, you can get to building ASAP! Click here to invest in the advent calendar that would make the Weasley boys proud.
