DIY Harry Potter Flying Keys Craft

Additional Time 15 minutes
These DIY Harry Potter flying keys are a fun, easy, and budget-friendly craft that's perfect for your Harry Potter themed party!



  • Gather all supplies and remove the packaging.
  • Apply a topcoat of metallic gold acrylic craft paint to the laser cut wooden keys. Brush in a random fashion, allowing some of the wooden base to show through in certain areas. Allow the paint to dry completely.

  • Download the FLYING KEYS WINGS PATTERN and print it onto vellum paper with black ink. Use scissors to carefully cut the wing patterns out of the vellum paper. NOTE: Vellum paper is transparent like tracing paper, but heavier like cardstock. You should be able to find it at most craft stores, or you can use the Amazon link above.

  • Use a glue gun to attach the wings to the gold painted keys just under the handle of the key. You could also use liquid craft glue for this project, but you'll have to wait for it to dry.
