Seemingly overnight, our 7 year old became completely over-the-moon obsessed with the world of Harry Potter. For whatever reason, my little Hufflepuff has particularly identified with the affable and curious Newt Scamander and is even a bit of a mini doppelgänger.
As a huge Harry Potter fan myself, when he asked to update his room with a Hogwarts theme, I happily obliged.
Wizarding Wear Display
My mom was getting rid of this “days of the week” hanger, and immediately I imagined that I could repurpose it for his wizard wear. Instead of his robes, scarfs, and invisibility cloak ending up in a pile on the floor, this hanging organizer allows him to see and access his wardrobe easily.
Platform 9 3/4
Next, I found a Platform 9 3/4 wall decal to hang in the entrance to his room. He absolutely loves it, and it makes you feel like you are literally stepping into another world when you enter his room.
His beds are filled with pillows and stuffed creatures, with a Hufflepuff throw from Pottery Barn Teen. He also has the softest Hogwarts houses sheets from Target on his beds.
Banners from Target hang on the walls with some repurposed woven basket suitcases from my mom’s house serve as a night table.
Displays of Magical Artifacts
My 7 year old is a collector and likes to gather items together to display. On top of his set of drawers, he has some more beasts, his prized owl – Akua, his wands, spell books, and more.
Sneaking off the top corner of the display is this niffler made with my Silhouette Cameo. He is reaching of a burlap bag, filled with my son’s loose change.
Other Harry Potter Details
I took a huge, old scrap of canvas and doodled a map of Hogwarts with a Sharpie…then I threw black tea all over the canvas to make it look old and stained. Using a grommet punch, I added grommets to the top to hang it above his desk.
My son is also a huge fan of sloths, so it is no surprise that his favorite big sloth is wearing a working sorting hat!
These baskets next to his bed serve as a nightstand. The top one stores his extra blankets, while the bottom one contains a complete Quidditch Kit!
His house elf, Baggins, sleeps next to this plush pillow I made with my Silhouette Cameo from blue velvet and gold foil vinyl. My son says it feels luxurious!
A feather quill and a DIY monster book of monsters finish off his desk. The monster book has the inside cut out so that he can hide more treasure there too.
So that’s the tour of my son’s room! What do you think?
