Harry Potter Club

At our Harry Potter Club this month we made these really cool Lumos/Nox lightswitch plates that I found via Pinterest. A very talented person made the original picture on her computer and printed it out to put on a lightswitch plate. I took the picture of her finished product and printed it out (making it the correct size for my plate) and glued it on. 🙂

I purchased the plates at Walmart – they are pretty cheap. I bought a few regular ones, oversized and ones with the large opening in case any of the kids had those in their rooms. They all had the normal ones at home so we used all regular oversized. 🙂

I printed them out for the kids and had them cut them out. (I cut out the middle for the switch with the exacto knife.) Then they used elmers glue to glue the picture onto the plate. Once that was done, we used modge podge (which is the greatest thing ever) and a sponge brush to cover the entire plate, including all the edges to seal the paper on. When they dried, which was pretty quick, they are hard – shelac-like.

They had the option of painting their own picture on the plate, but they all wanted the pre-made one. Fine by me!! Less mess to clean up.

While we waited for them to dry, we did some Harry Potter Trivia (from the first & second books.)
