DIY GOBLET OF FIRE (AND DURMSTRANG COSTUMES)!

Made a goblet of fire for a friend’s (socially distanced) Harry Potter gathering!

Used a planter, some PVC, spray foam and caulk for the cup, and then cellophane/foiling from the dollar store for the flame (added twinkling Christmas lights inside the cup for a flame effect!).

Finished up spray painting in the back yard.

Here it is in progress – I used dollar store frames, and hot glue for the writing.

Here it is at the event.

I also needing to make some Durmstrang costumes for my boys (to go with the goblet obviously! I bought a pattern, but ended up sort of making it up myself based on one of their old shirts, which worked out better.
TIP: it’s cheaper to buy basic sheets from Walmart than to buy fabric most of the time, and they come in a ton of colors.

I bought a monkey costume from a second hand store that I cut up to make the fur.

I used a curtain rod for the staffs.

Defeating a dragon!
Pestering a Thestral!
Together with the Goblet of Fire!
