Waynesboro’s 1st Annual Wizarding Festival (decorating)
This past Friday and Saturday was my town’s first annual Wizarding Festival
. A celebration of all things related to the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Before the festival there was a lot of prep that went into getting the ceramic studio ready for the weekend.
My friend Lesley printed out all the Harry Potter fliers and proclamations you see above and we spent one evening hanging them all.
I created floating candles for the front window. You can find the tutorial I followed for those here
Lesley created a lightening bolt stencil and we used spray chalk to help the bolts lead up to our door since the studio is located about a block off of the main square downtown. This was my first time using spray chalk, and though it is messier then I imagined, it’s really amazing. I can’t wait to try it again for future events at the studio.
When we first found out about the festival we reached out to guild members and asked them to create some magical ceramics to sell in the studio during the event. I cut out gold lightening bolts from paper to hang above the display table. We used some glittery tulle fabric to cover the table and displayed all the items in the center of the room.
We had lots of fun pulling everything together, and I am already excited about the planning for next year’s event. I’ll have more photos soon from all the parts of the festival we attended.
