DIY-Hogwarts house headband

DIYHarry Potter

Wanna show your Hogwarts house pride, but don’t feel like pulling out your Hogwarts house robes? Then make your very own Hogwarts house headband! These headbands are a perfect way to discreetly show off your house pride and are super cheap to make! I looked online and it costs about $10.00 to get a Hogwarts house headband on line. I made three for about that price!!

DIY-Hogwarts house headbands


  • Hogwarts house tie (I bought mine on the Wish app shipping was about 2 bucks each)
  • Headbands (I got mine from Walmart in a pack of three for about 4 bucks)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Iron (not pictured)
Step 1

Cut open the back of the tie and open it up, this will give you a TON more fabric to work with! Iron the tie so it lies flat. The best way to do this is to soak the tie then iron it.

Step 2

Place a line of hot glue on the underside of one side of your headband. Attach the tie to the glue. I did this in small sections to give me more control over the fabric. DO NOT put any glue on the top of the headband. I tried this and it just makes the headband look bumpy and funny looking.

Step 3

Smooth the fabric over the top of the headband, fold the fabric underneath, then start hot gluing the fabric down on the other side. I had to pull the fabric a little bit to get it to lay flat.


Step 4

Cut off any of the excess fabric.

Step 5

Trim the ends of the fabric and hot glue it to the end of the headband.

Step 6





If you want to add some cushioning on the inside of the headband to make it more comfortable you can hot glue a line of velvet ribbon likeΒ in this post.

Come to the Nerd Side,


PS-My Hufflepuff tie was blue and yellow. So as soon as I get one that’s black and yellow I’m planning on making a Hufflepuff headband too!


Welcome to my little piece of the internet, here it is cool to be a nerd! I am a Whovian, Potterhead, Disney Nerd, Sherlockian, and Superhero nerd (just to name a few ;) ) So welcome to where being a nerd is cool!

Yes, that rose is made from pages of an old, ruined Harry Potter book.
