About the Book
Charming crafts even Muggles can make!

You won't need alchemy or a magic wand to make these magical projects inspired by the world of Harry Potter. With a little Hogwarts creativity and the step-by-step guidance of this spellbinding book, you'll be able to transfigurate simple supplies and things around the house into everything from Remembrall Rings to Butterbeer Lip Balm to Nargles for your front lawn.

You'll be as busy as Mrs. Weasley knitting her Christmas sweaters as you dive into dozens of Potterific projects. Relive the excitement of Harry's adventures with these genius crafts. Drop some homemade Pgymy Puff Bath Fizzies into the tub and pretend you're Moaning Myrtle. Keep memories of the Quidditch pitch close with your very own Golden Snitch Necklace. Or show off the Sorting Hat's selection with a House Colors Tie-Dye Shirt.

Accio, crafting supplies--it's time for some wonderful wizardly fun!

My Take on the Book
Jamie Harrington puts her creative mind into action with a book of crafts for those who enjoy the Harry Potter books/movies. I found her designs and imagination astounding. She uses common items and changes them into Harry Potter crafts. There are 30 different crafts at various levels of difficulty.

The book is well written with not only the step by step directions but detailed photographs of the process. There are also photographs of the finished project. The author included many easy to produce objects such as the sorcerer's stone out of aquarium rocks and the pencil wand using a hot glue gun, acrylic paint and mod podge. Some projects will need adult supervision. The dementor soap requires the crafter to melt a soap base, use soap molds, and have a spray bottle that contains isopropyl alcohol.

Jamie Harrington has written a book that will definitely interest Harry Potter enthusiasts. There are hours of fun in this book.
