DIY Golden Snitches

I love hosting theme parties and my Harry Potter Halloween party was one of my all time favorites. These DIY golden snitches were one of the easy printable projects I made that helped take the party decor to the next level.

What’s a Harry Potter party without some Golden Snitches? Especially if they do double duty as a tasty party treat!

Making golden snitches out of Ferrero Rocher chocolates was an idea I found on Cooking Classy  (She also has a butter beer recipe and some other Harry Potter party ideas you might want to try, so be sure to check that out).

Once I saw them, I knew I needed to add them to my Harry Potter candy bar.

Fortunately these DIY Golden Snitches are really easy to make, so they’re my kind of party decor!

How to make DIY golden snitches

Golden snitch wings cut out on Cricut

1. Cut out the wings from the paper.

For my version of the golden snitches, I used my Cricut machine to make the wings from regular white paper.

However, if you really want to get fancy, you could use gold paper or color the wings with gold marker. I ran out of time, so mine stayed white.

You can get the Golden Snitch wing pattern above.

2. Next, I folded the wings up on either side of the center square.

3. Then I put glue on the back of the center square with a glue stick and stuck them to the top of the Ferrero Rocher chocolates. (See I told you that was easy!) You could probably use a glue stick or any kind of white craft glue to do the same thing. I just find a glue stick less messy to work with.

How to display them

The next dilemma I had was to get the Golden Snitches to stand up so the wings weren’t scrunched and make it easy for people to grab one if they wanted one.

Plus I wanted it to look kind of like the Quidditch box that a Golden Snitch would be stored in.

I lucked out and remembered this decorative box in my bedroom (originally from TJ Maxx) that was perfect.

So I cut a piece of floral foam a little smaller than the box.

Then used toothpicks to stick the Golden Snitches into the foam.

The perfect Golden Snitch display box 🙂

    Im trying to download the printable for the wings for the snitch but after i enter all my info, nothing happens

    1. Wanda Simone says:

      Sorry about that, Annabelle. It seems like the confirmation message isn’t working (I’ll take a look at that). It should have emailed them to you anyway…but just in case it didn’t, I sent them to you.

  2. Stephanie Boehmer says:

    I am also having issues with getting the printable after completing and submitting the form above.

    1. Wanda Simone says:

      Hi Stephanie…sorry you’re having trouble with the download. I’ll send you an email with the file.

  3. Hi! I’m trying to access the Harry Potter thank you cards. I’ve signed up for the email and have the password to the library but it is very difficult to find them. I’ve searched the website and all the Harry Potter links and it is just a run around and never to the download . It’s pretty frustrating.

    1. Wanda Simone says:

      Hi Tori…we don’t have Harry Potter thank you cards on our site. The only thing I can think of that is similar are the Honeydukes candy buffet labels? Since they are folded over, you could probably use them as Thank You cards. (Or maybe you are thinking of something you saw on another site?) In any case, if you go to the Harry Potter Party section of the Resource Library, the link that says “Harry Potter signs, house crests and Honeydukes signs” has all of the files that you can download in it. Sorry for the confusion!

  4. Hi
    Im trying to download the printable for the wings for the snitch. I entered everything. Thanks,

    1. Wanda Simone says:

      Hi Janet…you should have received an email that had the password and link to the resource library in it (where you can download it). I sent you another email with the file in case the first one didn’t work for some reason.
