Good Monday Morning Readers,
Today I am going to share with you the props I made for my son's Harry Potter Party. I made 4 of each of the two popular publications mentioned in the book, The Quibbler and The Daily Prophet. Both were very easy to make and they add another detail to the party just having them lay around. My daughter made The Daily Prophets and she is seven years old.
Here are the Quibblers. I printed out covers and backs on cardstock and glued them to old magazines with Helmar Acid Free Glue! This gave them dimension and a real feel of an actual publication. If you opened them though you would find old expired coupons mostly.
The Daily Prophets were very easy. I printed the top 1/2 of a image of the front page of multiple titles from all different movies. Then wrapped them around an old newspaper and tied them with twine.
Here they are dispersed throughout the party:
In the Great Hall with the Golden Snitch Cake... more to come in a future post about that.
Here is a Daily Prophet it the Gringotts display:
Need some light reading when your in the loo? We provided two types to suit the political taste of all our guests.
One last thing... the photo header is an image from the Gryffindor Common Room. where one of each of these were displayed on the center ottoman.
