BUILD A MAGIC PENSIEVE

Instructables

One of the most advanced projects on this list, building a pensieve like the one in Dumbledore’s office at Hogwarts will take a long time and cost a lot of Galleons. To build one you’ll need an LCD monitor connected to a laptop, an ultrasonic water mister, various lengths of plywood and boards, foam insulation, and mirror panels, not to mention carpentry skills and tools. If you’re up for the challenge, reserve a weekend (or a few) and roll up your sleeves.

MAKE A MANDRAKE

In the Harry Potter universe, the shriek of baby mandrakes can knock a wizard out—and the cries of adult plants can kill. Thankfully, you won’t need to wear earmuffs around the one you make at home. Following a tutorial from the blog Offbeat Home & Life, all you need is some flour, salt, and water, which you combine to make salt dough. Sculpt and bake the dough slowly—according to the tutorial, cooking the dough mandrake too quickly might cause it to crack—then paint it brown with craft paint and plop a plastic aquarium plant on top of your creation’s head. Planting the mandrake in dirt would add authenticity, but it could also get messy and would hide your handiwork, so planting in a clear vase is the way to go.
