DIY Harry Potter Felt Bookmark Tutorial
No matter what Hogwart’s house you might belong to (I’m a Ravenclaw!), this DIY Harry Potter Felt Bookmark craft is sure to be a hit with any HP fan. What’s more iconic than Harry’s lightning bolt scar, black rimmed glasses and the yellow/burgundy house colors of Gryffindor? This craft combines them all! There are so many times of year that this craft would be a great fit – aside, of course, from just celebrating Harry Potter in general.

How to Make a Harry Potter Felt Bookmark!
1. Print a copy of our HP bookmark patterns. Cut out the patterns.
2. Trace the patterns on the felt with a permanent marker (fine tip) according to directions included on pattern sheet.
3. Attach two cream circles together with glue to create the head and then attach the hair to the top of the head.
4. Use scissors to cut fringe across one end of the burgundy piece of felt.
5. Glue Harry’s head to the top of the burgundy piece of felt.
6. Attach gold rectangles to scarf with glue. Overlap the first rectangle on the bottom of Harry’s chin, and then leave ¾” burgundy sections between each of the five remaining gold rectangles.
7. Draw glasses on Harry’s face with black dimensional fabric paint. (Make glasses by drawing two circles, attached by a curved line.) Allow to dry.
8. Use the gold glitter glue to draw Harry’s lightning bolt shaped scar on his forehead. Allow to dry.
The finished bookmark looks so fantastic! Which book will you use it on first?
