Book Page Harry Potter Ornaments


If someone ever made me choose between Doctor Who and Harry Potter, I don't think I could do it. I have a deep love for both and since I have long been known for my awesome Doctor Who Christmas Tree, I decided this year was the year to add a Harry Potter tree to the mix. I have been creating up a storm and I can't wait to share all of the amazing Harry Potter ornaments that I have come up with, today I am sharing four different ways to make amazing ornaments with just an ornament and a copy of Harry Potter. 

I love picking up copies of Harry Potter when I am at thrift stores, I know that I can always find a fun craft for them, so head to your local thrift store and look for a cheap copy, any of the books will work for these projects. 

 You will need:

  • a glass ornament 
  • a copy of Harry Potter 
  • scissors 
  • mod podge
  • glitter

Remove pages of Harry Potter at the binding. Cut strips of text about two lines wide, any wider than that and they don't stick to the ornament as well. Use a foam brush to brush Mod Podge on the back of each strip of text wrap the strip around the ornament and repeat over and over again until the entire ornament is covered in paper strips. 



Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the entire ornament. Shake a small amount of glitter on the ornament while the Mod Podge is still wet. Allow the ornament to dry completely and then add a ornament hanger and add to your tree! 

You will need:

  • a glass ornament 
  • a copy of Harry Potter 
  • scissors 
  • a pencil 


Remove pages of Harry Potter at the binding. Cut strips of text about two lines wide. Roll the paper strips around the pencil and slide the strip off the end. Stick the paper roll into the top of the ornament and then shake the ornament and little bit to get it to open slightly. Repeat until the ornament is full of paper rolls.


You will need:
  • square glass ornaments 
  • a copy of Harry Potter 
  • scissors 
  • Mod Podge 
Remove the beginning chapter pages of Harry Potter at the binding. Cut the around the illustration, you can leave the chapter title or trim it off. Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to the front of the ornament, place the picture on the front of the ornament, smooth the photo and then add a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the picture. You can make the ornament double sided by repeating the process on the other side of the ornament. 



You will need:
  • a copy of Harry Potter 
  • scissors 
  • rubber cement
  • black paper
  • ribbon 
  • a hole punch
  • a laminator and laminating sheet

Go through your copy of Harry Potter and find some of your favorite quotes. Pull the pages out of the book and trim off the excess around the quote. I wanted the quote on the front of page to stand out so I cut black paper about a half inch bigger than the quote on each side. Use rubber cement to adhere the quote to the the black paper. After it is dry, run all of the quote through the laminator. Trim off the excess lamination and punch a hole in the top of each quote. Thread black ribbon through and tie a loop to hang on your Christmas tree.


Is there anyone in your life that would love these Harry Potter Ornaments?
