I pulled together this fun Harry Potter wreath super fast the other day with a little Sorting Hat ornament that’s just to die for!
Harry Potter Wreath
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have a bit of a Harry Potter obsession in our house. It’s a fun obsession, so I don’t mind at all. And when the kiddo asked for a custom Harry Potter wreath for her bedroom door, how could I say no?!
Off I set to make a tiny Sorting Hat ornament, pull together some craft room finds and make a wreath she LOVED! If you’re ready to make a fun Sorting Hat wreath, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Sorting Hat Wreath
- Start by getting the free cut file here for the sorting hat. You can load it into your Cricut or Silhouette to cut the two shapes, but even if you don’t have a cutting machine, you can just print the JPG pattern and use it as your pattern to cut the pieces with scissors.
- Grab a little set of glass, tie and wand like this one so you can just attach those. Making the hat is an easy craft, but making a tie is on a whole ‘nother level.
- Practice making the wrinkles in your sorting hat a couple of times, before gluing it in place, that way you can make sure to get the shape you want in those wrinkles.
How Do I Make this Harry Potter Wreath?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Cutting Machine, optional
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Start by tying your black Harry Potter fabric or bandana onto the front-center of the grapevine wreath form. I folded the bandana in half, then pulled the center through the middle of the wreath form, then tucked the ends through the loop I just created. Then I pulled the tails down toward the bottom of the wreath.
- Using the bandana as the "neck" for the necktie, tie the necktie onto the wreath. If you need a tutorial to help you figure out how to tie the necktie, check out this video.
- Make your sorting hat ornament by cutting out the two shapes from the SVG or JPG pattern from the brown premium felt. Cover the styrofoam cone in the triangle-shaped piece of the brown felt, hot gluing it in place, with a 1/4-inch overhang on the bottom. Make sure that the point of your hat is very pointy.
- With the scissors, snip little slits into the overhang about 1/4-inch long, every 1/2 inch all the way around, creating tabs. Fold these tabs under the styrofoam cone and hot glue them in place.
- Pinch the sides of the hat down into very deep wrinkles to make a semi-face-shape and hot glue in place.
- Place the felt-covered foam cone in the center of the circle of felt and hot glue in place.
- Hot glue the hat on top of the necktie in the center of the wreath.
- Tuck one white owl pick into the wreath and hot glue in place.
- Hot glue the round rim glasses closed, then affix them to the top of the necktie.
- Add either a wand or a mini-broom to the side and enjoy!
