What you’ll need:

You’ll need black card stock, two pieces of colored felt based on the different houses, your resident’s name printed out into a sheet of paper, and a hot glue gun. We downloaded the Harry P font through



1. Cut a 1″ strip out of one of the pieces of felt. Set it aside.

2. Cut the same size strip using the corresponding colored felt. Cut out 1″ wide squares using this piece of fabric.

3. Glue the squares onto the long strip of felt, spacing them about 1″ apart from one another.

4. Fray the ends of the newly formed scarf by carefully cutting small strips. Do the same to the other side.

5. Cut out the name and paste it onto the black card stock.

6. Glue the scarf onto the card stock, by the name.
