Harry Potter – The Potions Master- Hallmark Ornament
This is a beautiful Harry Potter ornament, and it is ideal for Harry Potter fans of all ages everywhere. Have you seen the first Harry Potter movie? If so, you will know that Professor Snape told Harry to make a boil treatment mixture, which included horrible ingredients like crushed snake fangs, dried nettles, porcupine quills and horned slugs. Another student forgets one of the ingredients and his cauldron melts. Harry is blamed instead of the other student and wonders why Snape is so keen to point the finger at him. This ornament is based on that scene. If you attach the clip to a lamp socket on a little light string it will light up. You do not need a separate connector cord. This ornament comes boxed with instructions.
How to Showcase Harry Potter Ornaments
Hanging Harry Potter ornaments look beautiful on any Christmas tree, but not many people will want to cover the entire tree in Harry Potter ornaments, so you might be wondering what else to use. If you like to color coordinate your Christmas decorations, look at the colors used in the Harry Potter ornaments and pick out some other decorations in those colors so they look like part of one large set. Choose a few hard balls, a few soft hanging decorations, some tinsel or lights perhaps, and maybe get the kids to make some decorations too, so they can add their special touch.
Something else you could do is consider is picking out a character from the books and theming your tree around those. For example, owls are prevalent in all the Harry Potter books, since they are pets of the wizards and they bring any mail or packages. You can get soft owls with feathers on, hard ones made from china, plastic or metal, realistic ones, funny ones, and so much more. Owls might not be Christmas themed exactly, but neither is Harry Potter, so you can fuse Christmas with your favorite books by decorating the tree Harry Potter style.
Perhaps you like the Harry Potter pewter ornament further down this page, in which case you might like to add some more pewter colored decorations to the tree. Pewter is a very heavy metal and anything too large is going to make the tree branches sag. You can get realistic looking pewter ornaments which are not really made from pewter, so any of those would be good to mix and match. If your ornaments are not designed for hanging on the tree, then you can put them around the room to add a festive, fun look. Perhaps ‘The Final Battle’ is an ornament you would like to have, or you could add ‘Hogwarts Castle’ to your Christmas model train set display, to add some fantasy appeal.
A Classic Look for the Tree
Not everybody wants to have their whole tree decorated in this style, so if you prefer a more classic look, a few Harry Potter ornaments would add an elegant appeal to the tree if you select high quality ones and nothing too bright or flashy. Consider the 5-piece set of metal Harry Potter ornaments. Not only are these beautiful tree decorations but they are ideal for collectors too. The metal means they will last for many years, and you can pass them on to your children and grandchildren. Harry Potter has worldwide fame and it will be popular for many, many years, so not only are Harry Potter ornaments fun, but they are also a great investment and something that will bring joy to the family for many years to come.

Why We All Love Harry Potter
The Harry Potter books were designed with kids in mind, but grownups everywhere adore the series, and they have been translated into so many different languages. It seems that Harry Potter appeals to all races, nationalities, genders, ages, and personalities, and is enjoyed in both the book and movie versions. The series offers excitement, magic, a fantasy world and complete escapism. The books are written to keep you hooked and make you want to read on and on. If you want to encourage the kids to read more, try Harry Potter because they will not want to put the book down. These books have a similar effect on adults as well.
The stories are based on the old ‘good versus evil’ storyline, with good overcoming evil in the end, but there is so much more to them that just that. You will get to know and love the Harry Potter character, and be fascinated by not only his friendship, relationships and the fascinating story of his family, but you will also enjoy the darker side of the books featuring all kinds of monsters and evil characters. Each new book sees a slightly older Harry, and although each book offers brand new happenings and adventures, the good triumphing over evil is the goal of each one.
Harry Potter is someone everyone admires because even though he has had a very rough start to life, he is a good, honest person, and he is also brave. Harry treats his friends very well, and also has a sense of humor. These are all traits people like to identify with, so you will find yourself supporting Harry on his missions and adventures, and hoping no harm comes to him. Kids are usually not keen on reading about anyone younger than themselves, so they also enjoy the fact that Harry ages throughout the books and becomes more mature. If your kids are too young to tackle a whole book, why not read a chapter or two each night to them, as a bedtime story?
An Educational Read
Reading Harry Potter is educational for the kids, first because it is reading and any suitable reading is good where kids are concerned, to help develop their skills, but it also opens up their imaginations to these magical and mystical realms, and that is very important for kids. They can discover reading does not have to be a chore, or something they are forced to do at school, but it can also be a wonderful way of entertaining themselves. One word of advice though – make sure they read the book before watching the movie, else they will say they know how the story ends and do not need to read the book!
