Christmas Tree Decoration

Christmas is just a few days away, and of course I would need some Harry Potter-themed decorations. The first decorations I made were these;

In norwegian they are called “julekurver”, but I couldn’t find an english equivalent for this term. For now I will just call them decorations, and they are simply made out of paper and book pages. I know, book pages?! How crazy am I? But in my defence I bought a Harry Potter book at the thrift store for the sole purpose of using it to make different things. I did for a while mean to use red, green, yellow and blue paper, for the four houses. But changed my mind and used only green and red, since those are christmas colours.

Have you guys made any Harry Potter themed christmas decorations? I would love to know!

Advent Calendar

A few months back I saw this blogpost over at Juliette, and she had made this wonderful advent calendar. I simply had to make one for myself. She had templates and step by step explanations. I got everything I needed. Since her template was in french, I decided to do some alteration, namely changing the words from french to norwegian (since I don’t really speak french). I also had to try and fail a couple of times to get the templates to the right size for my box. I guess if you do not alter them they would fit perfectly.

Anyway, here are some pictures of my project. As you can see it is not as neat as Juliette, and I did blue glitter instead of gold. But I love it!

On the front it says: “Advent Calendar”, and then “Harry Potter” as you probably can see.

On the back I wrote: “24 magical days”.

Again, you can find the post with templates and everything right HERE. It is in french, but you could allow google translate to translate the page for you. It will not be perfect, but you get the gist.

Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them

Oh, my heart. At midnight last night I went to see “Fantastic Beast and Where to find them”. It was amazing. And I loved how you could see the fans in house scarfs, costumes and full of excitement. It was a little to crowded to get good pictures, so unfortunately I don’t have that many.

I wanted so bad to take one of these with me. Maybe I’ll ask them if I can get one when the movie is no longer screening.

I guess you can’t really tell, but this is the ticket for the cinema. If you look closely you’ll see the word “Fabeldyr”, which means Fantastic Beast. As you might also see, I saw it in 3D. They also had a 2D screening, but we chose the 3D. It was great. A few moments the subtitles were hard to read because of the 3D-effect, but mostly it was great. I think it might brought a little more life to the creatures. But I guess the movie is fantastic in both 2D and 3D.
