A Tour of My Harry Potter-themed Christmas Tree

A Tour of My Harry Potter-themed Christmas Tree

This year, I wanted to create a Harry Potter-themed tree. I’d seen a few of them floating around the internet and with all the fandom merch I’ve accumulated over the years I knew I could pull it off. I don’t have a single official Christmas ornament from the Harry Potter franchise, but I think it went really well!

I organised the tiers of the tree according to house colours and topped it off with a disgruntled-looking owl. My Slytherin sister was making mean comments about my second-favourite house (Hufflepuff) and so Slytherin got the smallest section as her punishment.

This part of the tree is filled with Dark Magic.

I found this Marvolo Gaunt ring at one of the stalls at Supanova!

And this Slytherin locket was part of a sticker pack.

This is actually a brooch from Hungry Designs with a bit of twine to make it an ornament.

There was also some space for a pair of Harry’s glasses.

And a sneaky Cornish pixie Funko.

Now comes Ravenclaw! It was a bit hard to get my hands on blue baubles, but I made up for it with all of my house merch.

This was around the centre of the tree, which was perfect for one of Harry’s Hogwarts letters.

This Ravenclaw diadem necklace is another Supanova find.

I actually have no idea where this brooch is from since it was a gift but it’s so pretty!

This is a gift tag from The Bookish Box’s Cozy Up and Read box. But I wasn’t giving it to anyone else because it’s too adorable.

Another sticker pack find, tied up with twine!

And my Head Girl pin is from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando!

Our tree is usually decked in red and gold so it wasn’t hard to fill out Hufflepuff.

Awwww, Helga.

I found a goblet bauble at Big W to use as Hufflepuff’s cup.

Luna’s Spectrespecs were a last-minute addition but they fit best in the Hufflepuff section.

Godric Gryffindor is hanging out in the background, wishing he could be in Hufflepuff. And a grumpy Grindylow Funko is waiting to topple the entire tree.

Last but not least is Gryffindor! It got the largest part of the tree because we had so many red ornaments on hand and there’s so much to work with.

And this might just be my favourite part of the tree. To the left is a keyring from The Harry Potter Shop Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. And then we have this reindeer ornament from Bed Bath n’ Table, which is a stand-in for Harry’s Patronus. It was the least prancy reindeer I could find and it looks awesome with the fairy light behind it.

Once I started decorating, I couldn’t stop myself, so the base of the tree got a makeover as well. This Hogwarts Express set is from Funko as well.

A cosy little reading corner.

And another one, just because.

And what would a Harry Potter theme be without some dragon eggs?

I think that’s about it! If you see anything on the tree that you’d like to find out about, let me know!
