Free Harry Potter Printables and Decorations
For my son’s Harry Potter Birthday party I got most of my free Harry Potter printables and decorations ideas from other sites. I am so grateful for the hard work of others! But I took some extra time to make a few of them and thought I would provide you with all the printables here!
Harry Potter Birthday Banner Printable
I designed this banner to be printed out on 8.5×11 sized paper.

Harry Potter Golden Snitch
I bought this snitch as a decoration/birthday gift. It was so insanely cheap that my hopes weren’t really high, but I was surprised by how nice it looked and how well it has held up. It was perfect for the party and my son has had fun with it since.
Printable of Hogwarts Express Platform 9 3/4 Sign
I also made a Hogwarts Express Platform sign! I tried to make it like the one in the movie, but to fit a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper.

More Harry Potter Decoration Ideas
This was a fun little surprise in the bathroom! I made the Moaning Myrtle by having a photo of her copied on to a transparency to make her look more ghostly. I then cut her out and taped her to the toilet.
Harry Potter Potion Bottles
One of my favorite things were these potion bottles! I got the labels over at lovely overthebigmoon.com.
I started out by first just adding food coloring to some water to make the potions, but it looked really cheesy. So I started to add condiments and other kinds of food instead!
I did this one by adding cinnamon.
Hagrid’s Birthday Cake
This year I totally lucked out on the cake. It usually takes me a few hours the day before the party to make my kids’ cakes, but since B– wanted a cake like the one Hagrid made Harry it was crazy easy. I just did a three-layered chocolate cake and frosted it with pink frosting that was tinted with a little cocoa powder to make it look more like the color that was used in the movie. I then wrote on top with green frosting. Since my handwriting is already terrible and when I write with frosting it is even worse, it turned out perfect!
