Anyone else love Halloween?? It is such a fun time to decorate and dress up in fun costumes! I have also been decorating the house by adding some fun decor to our mantel. And I decided that this year I was doing a Harry Potter Halloween, with school signs, house banners, and a Nimbus 3000. (Yes, I am a total HP nerd and I am not afraid to share it!!)

I created Hogwarts school house banners to add to my Harry Potter mantel! (For full tutorial on how to make the Harry Potter school arrows, check out this post where I use my Xyron Creative Station and cardstock to make these!)

Harry Potter Halloween House Banner Tutorial

Materials

Tutorial

Step 1:

Using your Cricut Maker, cut out a large and medium banner in every color but white. I did the large banner in one color and the medium banner in the other house color.

  • Gryffindor: Scarlet and Gold
  • Ravenclaw: Blue and Bronze
  • Slytherin: Green and Silver
  • Hufflepuff: Yellow and Black

Step 2:

Cut out the letters for each house at Hogwarts (G, H, S, R) using your Cricut Maker. I cut out the letters in both white and black to give it a shadow effect.

I used the font “Harry P” I downloaded for free!

Step 3:

Run your medium banners, along with all the letters through the Xyron Creative Station with the permanent adhesive refill.

Step 4:

Adhere the medium banner to the large banner. Make sure the correct colors go together, because it would be awful if you put the wrong yellow on a banner and took pictures of it and had to do it all over again!!

Step 5:

Put each letter on each banner. I put the white letter first, then the black letter on top.

Step 6:

Hang the twine on the mantel and attach banner using the mini clothespins.
