The Golden Snitch! – my Harry Potter Ornament

You guys already know how much I love Harry Potter. So much so that even though I had all my books in Hungarian, I purchased the last volume of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in English because I couldn’t even imagine waiting for the translated version.

So it’s probably not a surprise that I’ve instantly fell in love with a Golden Snitch Christmas tree ornament tutorial I saw over at Tiny Apartment Crafts a couple of weeks ago.

It took me a while to finish because I don’t usually work with wire (and still dislike it!) and I had a glue gun to purchase as well, but my ornament is finally done and ready to use.

I couldn’t wait to decorate the Christmas tree today and search for the best spot to place my Golden Snitch!


PS: it’s my only ornament up right now, so I better get going and decorate the rest of the tree ;-)

    I also have the HP books taking up a good amount of space on my bookshelf.
