The fantasy world of Harry Potter is loved by millions of people worldwide. J.K. Rowling created a set of masterpieces that people enjoy reading and it later came to life with the successful movie franchise. If you’re in the process of renovating or redecorating your home, then consider adding in some Harry Potter themes and designs.
You can have small homemade items that can change your home’s style tremendously. Think about the amazing interior and exterior designs in Hogwarts, The Leaky Cauldron, or even Diagon Alley! Read on to learn more about how you can bring the wonderful fantasy world of Harry Potter to life in the comfort of your own home.
The cool and unique parchment paper you see in the movies or described in the books can be easily made at home. You can have several notes or maps added to every table or corner of your home. To make them have this fantasy world theme, you need several pieces of white paper, half a cup of coffee, markers or paintbrushes, and strings or ribbons. You should decide which papers will be maps, parchments, or scrolls before you start. The first step is to dip all the paper into the coffee and then let it dry. The paper will look exactly like the ones in the movie and you can start writing random things or quotes from the movies in these parchments. You can even make the marauder’s map with a huge sheet of paper with all the footprints of characters walking around. Make several ones that you can scatter all over your home to enjoy.
Transform Your Rooms
Completely redecorating and designing your rooms from scratch can be a great idea to have them look like something from the Harry Potter universe. If you have the budget for it, consider renovating your attic, basement, or even the shed outside to look like a famous place in the movies or books. Finding the right contractor or interior designer in the UK can be tricky, but having several interviews and checking different quotes can help you narrow down the choices. You can read more on whatshed.co.uk about a family that loves their daughter so much that they want to transform their garden shed to look like Hagrid’s hut for her birthday. This is a wonderful and unique idea that you can do to your shed as well. Or you could transform your basement into the Two Broomsticks, having a bar and the same furniture that matches the movies and the book’s description. The choice is up to you and what you want to see brought to life.
The wands from this universe are one of the most exciting items to have and you can easily make them at home. You just need sheets of paper, a glue gun, and paint. You can design several wands that look exactly like the ones in the movie or described in the books. Consider making it a family activity where you craft these wonderful and magical items together.
The Elder wand can be a great choice, making the owner the most powerful wizard or witch in the world! Or maybe you’re a huge fan of Lord Voldemort and want the spooky white wand of the dark lord. If you’re a Hermione fan and you want to teach someone how to properly cast spells, then you can craft a nice one that resembles Miss Granger’s wand easily.
It will be cool if you added different knickknacks everywhere in your home. You can have hangers or hooks on the walls that look like the flying keys in the first book and movie. If your home has a floor mirror, then you can design it to look like The Mirror of Erised, attaching wooden or plastic designs to match the real mirror. Designing your doorknobs to look like the golden snitch is another excellent choice. Also, having several wall sconces made out of wood or metal that look like The Deathly Hallows will be a wonderful addition to your home’s design.
The great thing about owning a home is that you get to decorate your way. There is no right or wrong way because it all depends on your preferences and tastes. If you want to have a Harry Potter fantasy world theme at home, then no one should ever stop you. The ideas are limitless and you can craft several magical and unique items that you can enjoy. The wonderful world of witchcraft and wizardry can come to life and you can show the world your passion for this universe with your new designs.
