Harry Potter Halloween: Charlie's Badges

These badges are a part of Charlie's Dragon Researcher's Desk (to follow).

Supplies Needed:

Clear Packing Tape
Pack of toy badges
A sheet of cardstock
Clear tape

Total Cost: $1 and up

I bought these play badges at the Dollar Tree:

Then I found that Charlie Weasley, Ron's big brother who studies dragons in Romania, was, in his time, a Gryffindor Prefect, A Quidditch Seeker and later Captain of the Quidditch team. (He was also a member of the Order of the Phoenix.)

To represent these things on the table I decided to make these badges as if Charlie kept them with him as a memento of his Hogwarts days.

First print out these badges here on cardstock.

Then place a piece of clear packing tape over each image and cut them out. You will need to cut out the extra stuff on the Quidditch captain badge to get it to fit.

Match the images to the badges like the in the photos below.

Attach the images to the badges with a loop of clear tape or two and you're done!

In retrospect, I would have purchased the gold badges instead of the silver ones but I think they turned out nice anyways.
