Each crest is a Harry Potter licensed Cricut Design Space image that you can purchase. Even me, I bought every single Harry Potter design because I just love the ease of use. Each crest costs $1.99, or you can buy all the HP designs as a bundle.

Step 1: Cutting the Iron-on

The magic of the images, is that there is little or no effort involved. Just size the designs to the desired size...mine are 7 inches tall. Mirror the image so it cuts the design in reverse.

Step 2: Black Felt Buntings

Then get 4 pieces of black felt. These pieces measure 9x12 inches. Fold it in half and place the ruler at the bottom edge. Place it right on the open ended corners and angle the ruler up 1.5 inches to the folded center.

Felt is a great stiff surface for buntings and banners

Step 3: EasyPress Iron-on

Now place the black felt bunting on the EasyPress mat and place the bottom layer of the crest...the gray one...on the bunting.

Step 3: EasyPress Iron-on Now place the black felt bunting on the EasyPress mat and place the bottom layer of the crest...the gray one...on the bunting.

Press again for 15 seconds. If 15 doesn't feel like it's adhering enough, do it a little longer...but it's heating each layer repeatedly and we don't want to over do it.

Final layer is the name of the crest. Place the name on the proper space and use a carrier sheet from a previous layer to cover the entire thing. You don't want the EasyPress to touch the iron-on directly.

Then thread the cording through the folded over edge. I looked up which order the tables are set up in Hogwarts...and it goes Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and then Gryffindor.

Which house do you belong in? I think Hufflepuff gets overlooked a lot. It seems like a cool house though.

I read the Harry Potter books with my oldest kids about 8 years ago. That means my baby, who is now 11, has never actually heard or read the full books. We decided that this is the homeschool year for him to get through all the books. We are going to celebrate with Butter Beers and a Harry Potter Party to kick it off. Happy 6th grade!
