Instructions to make your own Hogwarts acceptance letter:
- Heat water and dip a tea-bag in it. Squeeze the tea-bag and drag it over the white papers. Leave them to dry.
- On one of the sheets, draw the Hogwarts emblem and write the acceptance letter. You can also mention the list of essentials required! (wand / hat / toad!)
- To form an envelope, cut the other sheet into a square. Fold three ends towards the centre and stick them to each other. Insert the letter inside and close the fourth flap.
- On the front side of the envelope, write your address!
- To make the Hogwarts seal, take red clay. Flatten it to form a circle. Press a coin into it. Using a matchstick, engrave the letter ‘H’ in it. Place this on the opening flap.
Don’t forget to feed the tired and hungry owls that deliver these letters! Next stop, Diagon Alley!
