My Muggles in my Girl Scout troop are going to love this: I’m anxiously awaiting the Amazon delivery of The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter: 30 Magical Crafts for Witches and Wizards-from Pencil Wands to House Colors Tie-Dye Shirts.
When my friend told me about this book, I admittedly dismissed it. After all, I had seen scores of wand crafts and Griffindor shirts that you can make on Pinterest.
But I finally got online and checked out the preview and the table of contents, and I am so excited about this craft book! There are Harry Potter themed crafts for school, your bedroom or locker, beauty, and for wearing.
I love some of the names for these Harry Potter craft projects:
- Butterbeer lip balm and Pigmy Puff Bath Fizzies (hmm…spa badge?)
- Spellbook journal
- Monsters Book of Monsters book cover (back to school craft?)
- Dementor soap (Halloween-themed spa night?)
- House colors sugar scrub
- Free Dobby Laundry Hamper
- Wall Mirror of Erised
- Lumos/Nox light switch cover (Earth Day?)
You could even wrap these HP projects with a cooking day, using recipes from Magical Summer Sweets: Harry Potter Inspired Recipes or Magical Menu: Harry Potter Cooking for Christmas Meals. Enjoy!

I need to amend this to add that I did get the book in the mail, and I love it. I’m debating how best to use this with my scouts – on our Harry Potter themed overnight or a fun twist on the retired Spa Interest Project! 🙂
This looks so fun! Wish it was available when I was in Girl Scouts!
I had fun playing with the pigmy puff bath bombs this weekend. You know, in the name of testing it out for a troop project. 😉
How fun! I’m pretty sure I know a few adults who would also enjoy this book!
I am. 😉
