Harry Potter Golden Snitch Ornament

Easy DIY for the Golden Snitch from the Harry Potter series.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Start by removing the hanging cap from your ornament.
  2. Hold ornament by the neck where the cap was and quickly paint it with a thick layer of craft glue all over.
  3. Dust glitter around the entire ornament, repeating as necessary until it has a thick even coat of glitter.
  4. Carefully replace the cap and hang your ornament to dry for a few hours.
  5. While the glue is setting up you can move onto the wings.
  6. Fold your gold sheet over and cut 2 shapes like feathers/ leaves. I found that 4”-5” is a great size for the golden snitch wings.
  7. Cut halfway through on each side of your feather shape to define the feathering.
  8. Gently tap excess glitter off your ornament and if desired, spray your ornament with a coat or two of clear sealant to keep it from shedding glitter.
  9. Use hot glue to firmly secure the wings to either side of the gold glittered ball. Hold the wings in place until the glue is cooled and set.
  10. Add a hanger or ribbon.
  11. Your Golden Snitch is now ready to take its place of honor in your family tree!
