DIY Harry Potter Ornaments are a must for your holiday crafting! This year my daughter decided to conquer the entire Harry Potter book series. To say this geek mom is proud would be an understatement. In fact, when we sat down to plan out our salt dough ornaments this year we both knew we had to do something truly Harry Potter-inspired. That’s where the idea for these DIY Harry Potter Ornaments was born. They are very simple to make and tons of fun!

Combine them in a Harry Potter gift basket or give them as a solo Harry Potter gift! This would make the perfect gift for a Harry Potter fan!
