Sorting Hat Party Favors
These totally darling Sorting Hat Party Favors are the perfect way to decorate a table at a Harry Potter party and sort the guests into the four houses — Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. These would be fun to make ahead of the party and also as a party craft. This is the first project on the blog this week for Creative Crafts, Edition 2 – Harry Potter Crafts! Be sure to follow along because there is a TON of DIY magic coming your way, all themed with the Wizard World of Harry Potter.
Materials and Supplies Needed:
- Kunin Basic Felt (Cashmere)
- Brown Fabric Scraps/Darker Brown Felt
- Beacon Fabri-Tac
Start by cutting the cashmere colored felt into two quirky triangles that are identical. Glue them together along the longer sides with Beacon Fabri-Tac glue. It will dry pretty quickly.
Cut a wonky circle out that has a diameter of at least the long side of your triangle. Add little scraps of brown fabric to the top triangle piece and around the edge of the circle.
Glue the two sides of the triangle (where the corners meet) to the circle, using a more than normal dollop of glue on each side.
Let it dry completely then add a tied piece of twin around the hat for extra personality. Fill the hats with candies in the colors of the houses.
Here’s a little fun printable about the Great Hall at Hogwarts, the room where the sorting ceremony takes place!
