Golden snitch o’clock
What a sin it would be to throw a Harry Potter party without hanging golden snitches around and about the place with carefree abandon. This is how I reckon set designer extraordinaire Stephenie McMillan made hers, quicker than you can say “wingardium leviosa”…
How to: Make the perfect golden snitch*
Ping pong balls
Pierce two holes either side of your ping pong balls and make the holes a bit bigger with some scissors. Slip your feathers in, spray with some gold paint and tadaa! A golden snitch before your very eyes.
To hero in 4.6 seconds (or thereabouts) :
Hang them anywhere you can. If you have the spends, invest in some helium, fill up a few balloons and then attach the snitches with some thread, so it looks like they’re flying about of their own accord. Charming!
And while you’re at it, why not have a look at my Harry Potter party invitations? Everyone will want to come to your shindig!
* Be prepared for your male friends to make oh-so sophisticated golden snatch jokes. Guffaw, chuckle, snigger etc…
