? DIY Hogwarts Alumni Halloween Costume ?

Hello Kind Friends. If my Ultimate Halloween Costume Guide wasn’t enough for you, today I’m sharing  an easy DIY costume inspired by the Harry Potter universe. Did you always want to attend a wizarding school? Be a Hogwarts Alumni this Halloween.

The only things you really need for this project is an iron on transfer paper and then any other witchy accessories you’d like to have. In the video I also share an easy felt with hat tutorial, it is so comfy and won’t get in the way of party goers since it has a floppy look.

Hogwarts Alumni Costume Shirt Instructions:

  1. Find a Hogwarts Alumni logo that you’d like to use and save it to your computer
  2. Flip or mirror the image as given in your iron on transfer instructions
  3. Print the logo onto the transfer paper
  4. Cut out the logo and place onto the shirt with the ink facing down
  5. Heat the logo onto the shirt as provided by your instructions
  6. Once the design has cooled, lift up the transfer paper

DIY Hogwarts Costume

No Sew Witch Hat Instructions (using a tutorial from Alejandra Styles):

  1. Download the template from Alejandra
  2. Print the template
  3. Cut out the template pattern from your printer paper
  4. Place the template on the fold of a large piece of felt with a piece of tape in the middle to keep it secure
  5. Cut out the template from the felt(I used 1 yard and had extra fabric)
  6. Using a hot glue gun, glue the triangle piece together and pull it inside out to hide the seam
  7. Glue the center of the circular piece and fold it over the cone piece so that the glued edges join the edge of the cone (look to the video for a visual of this step)
  8. Cover the rim of the hat with something decorative to hide the seam, I used polka dot washi tape

Clothing options:

  • Long black skirt or skater skirt
  • Other Hogwarts memorabilia clothing (you could also make a sweater using the iron on transfers and your Hogwarts house crest)
  • Black boots or flats

Accessory options:

  • A wand (or a polished stick from outside)
  • Amulets
  • Potion jars (it would be funny to take out from your purse during parties)

I hope you all enjoyed this simple DIY project. It only took me about two hours to put everything together so it’s great for a last minute party.

    I don’t really dress up for Halloween because I’m much too lazy. This looks easy! That is definitely something I could do. Otherwise I just put on a witch hat and call it a day.
