Harry Potter Snowflake (with Printable Template!)

 In DIY Projects

Β It’s January in Northern Minnesota. That means it’s time for cutting some paper snowflakes. This year I decided to create a Harry Potter themed snowflake!

Instructions:
1. Print out the pattern and cut out the square portion.
2. Fold your square in half diagonally, matching opposite corners. Fold your newly formed triangle in half 2 more times.
3. Cut out all gray or black shaded regions using scissors and an Xacto knife. (I find it easier to cut out the smaller areas 1st, with an Xacto knife.)
4. Unfold, hang up, and enjoy!

As you can tell from the images, my original pattern was a little different. I had initially included the Elder Wand, knowing it’d be difficult to cut out. Well… that held true, and it was just too thin to cut on a folded edge.

When cutting my snowflake I got a little zealous and ended up cutting off the snitch from the top of my potion bottle. I decided to switch the order of those 2 in the pattern, putting the snitch on top of the Hogwarts crest, to help prevent others from doing the same thing.

Have fun decorating your windows, walls, and/or work space!

      Give this one a try Rosa. I was actually surprised how easy it was to cut out …at least compared to the 2 from last year and a Star Wars one I’ve cut out before.

    Awesome! I will definitely be trying this one to add to my collection. My coworkers are probably begging me not to add anymore nerdflakes to our work space.
