Okay Harry Potter fans, have you seen the new Fantastic Beasts trailer?! We got to see Hogwarts again! (Be honest, did you get teary-eyed?) We also got to see a sneak peek of Dumbledore’s and Newt’s relationship, and while we don’t know much about the movie yet, I know one thing for sure, I cannot wait to see it! And neither can my friend Vicky from Vicky Hearts TV. That’s why we’ve partnered to bring you some magical Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts posts through our Wands at the Ready collab — all leading up to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hitting theaters in November.
Looking for a fun Harry Potter DIY activity for your weekend? Try this origami project to make your own howler! I know you know what a howler is…
“RONALD WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR? I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! YOURE FATHER’S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK, AND IT’S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER *TOE* OUT OF LINE, WE’LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME! And Ginny, dear, congratulations on making it into Gryffindor. Your Father and I are so proud.”
Okay, be honest. You definitely read that in Mrs. Weasley’s disappointed, furious voice!
And just in case you can’t remember the scene…
And now my wizard, witch, and muggle friends, go ahead and put your wands aside. You won’t need them to make your own howler. 🙂
Let me start by telling you that I am NOT an origami pro… at all! But when I found this video tutorial from Muggle Magic, they made it look easy, and I was inspired to try out my paper skills to make my own Howler. (P.S. Muggle Magic has a TON of awesome Harry Potter tutorials! Make sure to check out their YouTube channel for more magical inspiration.)
And my finished product… voila! I love it! And it fits in perfectly with all of my Harry Potter items. 🙂
Until our next Harry Potter meeting, keep your Wands at the Ready!
