This "Harry Potter"-Themed Christmas Tree is Pure Magic

Including a Nimbus 2000, a Sorting Hat, and dozens of ornaments, it took a total of 8 hours to fully decorate.

Love Christmas? Love Harry Potter? How about both — and what happens when you combine the two of them together? Just ask Kathryn Burnett. She's a 29-year old from Seaham, England, who has managed to beautifully bring together her two favorite things — Christmas and Harry Potter — in a themed Christmas tree, and the result is going viral. "One day, I was thinking, 'Wouldn't it be fun to have a Harry Potter Christmas tree?' I started to sketch a little idea and then I became really excited about the idea," Burnett tells us.

 

And as you can see, she totally aced it.

"When I told my friends [about my idea], I think they thought I was crazy, probably because they couldn't imagine what I had planned. The more I collected for the tree the more excited I got," Burnett explains.


You probably wonder how long it took her to find all the ornaments. Well, the answer is: 11 visits to the Warner Bros. Studios in London where everyone can tour the film sets of the famous book-turned-movie franchise. By the way, Kathryn is returning this year for a twelfth time to have Christmas dinner at the Great Hall. (That's what we call dedication.)

You know what else requires a lot of that? Actually decorating the tree. Kathryn spent eight hours to make sure the tree and the surrounding display look picture-perfect. Take a closer look and you'll see countless ornaments that reference iconic magical moments like the Flying Ford Anglia, the horcrux symbol, a ticket to the Knight Bus, and the Hogwarts house crests.
