SVG Files on my site
We have a variety of SVG cut files in our SVG Shop. I love to create DIYs from my digital designs. I understand you see a lot of SVGs online and then when it’s time to create you are stumped on what to actually make with the cut file. So, be sure to check out the blog posts as a great place to get inspired and find DIY ideas.
Harry Potter Crafts DIY Supplies
For our DIY we are making a coffee mug with our Harry Potter themed SVG cutting file. I’ll be talking about Cricut Design Space and the supplies I used. But this project is simple for any cutter.
- The Wand Chooses the Wizard free SVG
- Permanent Vinyl for your mug
- Coffee Mug, or a Butter Beer Glass works for this DIY too!
- Cricut and Design Space to cut your vinyl
This Harry Potter DIY makes the perfect gift for a huge Harry Potter fan! You can also add this harry Potter SVG to Christmas ornaments for a gift to give the wizard in your life.
If you are going to Universal Studios to hang Harry and his homies, you should make a graphic tee with our The Wand Chooses the Wizard free SVG
Step-by-step instructions for this Harry Potter DIY
Start your project by uploading your SVG to your Cricut Design Space. If you want more info and tips for uploading SVGs, click here.
Now the hard part, picking your vinyl colors. This is always a fun part for me but having a variety of colors helps. My favorite is the Poli-tape line type of vinyl. Look at these colors!
I used my son’s Harry Potter wand to pick the colors. The purples and the sparkles from this Poli-Tape box are so magical!
However, I tried to use the wand on the mess in my craft room and I’m sad to say that did not work! I might need some spell training from my friend Harry. LOL
Picking Vinyl for Craft Projects
Now, back to our magical Harry Potter coffee mug DIY. You will want to look closely at your vinyl instructions and details to make sure you create a product that will last more than one use.
Using adhesive vinyl will wash off in time. Using permanent vinyl is a better choice. My son is not a coffee drinker so I’m guessing he’ll use this to keep pencils in it on his desk. For this use, it won’t be getting washed after coffee each day and adhesive vinyl is fine.
If you want a more permanent vinyl, check out Poli-Tape for HTV options. Those purple sparkles would be the magical choice.
