Make a Hedwig ornament to put on your tree this year!
If you love to craft your own Christmas decorations you will love making this easy Hedwig tree ornament.
The kids can get involved with making the pom-poms and if they can crochet, the eyes, beak, wings and scarf!
Make Your Own Mini Hedwig
If you are a Harry Potter fan then you will definitely want to add a Hedwig ornament onto your Christmas tree!
Made from simple craft supplies, the ornament is mostly made from mini pom-poms and added crochet items.
You do need to use a hot glue gun, so adult supervision is needed if the kids want to help out.
*Don’t forget to pin and share!*
The Supplies You Will Need
If like me you absolutely love the Harry Potter movies, you probably want to make some Harry Potter DIY Christmas decorations that are centred around some of the most popular characters, creatures and objects.
You won’t need any special magical skills to create this Hedwig ornament, just some courage and creativity to gather supplies from around the house or from your local craft store.
You will need the following materials to get started;
- White yarn – 1 skein or scrap
- Black yarn (scrap)
- Burgundy yarn
- Mustard yarn
- Any Lightweight (03) – any DK yarn.
- Craft eyes
- 2 small polystyrene balls for the body base
Made Mostly From Mini Pom Poms
The little owl is created by making many small pom poms with a pom pom maker set – 3/4 inch and 1 inch from Clover.
Then the polystyrene balls are glued together for the body of the owl and all of those small pom-poms are glued all over to cover the body and head.
This makes the owl really fluffy, after that the wings, beak, eyes and scarf are added.
You Also Need To Know How To Crochet
This Hedwig craft does include a little bit of crochet so if you are new to this, you can learn how to crochet with the tutorials on my site.
The scarf, wings, beak and outer white casings for the eyes are all crochet.
The google eyes are glues to the inside of the crochet circles – to make them stand out from the face.
Great For The Christmas Tree
The decoration can sit in your Christmas tree or be fixed (glued or wired) to your front door wreath.
You could also add a loop to the head of the owl if you wanted to hang it from a branch.
The scarf has been made with the Gryffindor house colours and mini tassels added to each end.
