Your Hogwarts Acceptance Letter + Supplies List - Free!

Get your Hogwarts Acceptance Letter and Supplies List free here. Envelope not included.

The letter and supplies list is only written for you. You need to print it out yourself. Here's how it works:
  1. Write your friend's name in the space at the top (in your best handwriting!) where it says 'dear___'.
  2. Print it out on blank paper. The Hogwarts crest does not have to be in colour.
  3. Crumple the paper up into a ball and then flatten in on a flat surface.
  4. Get a small paintbrush and two bags of black tea.
  5. Make the tea by putting the teabag into boiling hot water.
  6. Dip the brush tip into the tea and brush on your letter thoroughly. The paper should look wrinkled and brown. If you like, you could slightly rub the edges with your finger to make it look crinkly.
  7. Find a suitable envelope. Write your friend's name, address and post code (optional).
  8. Like how they did with Harry Potter, instead of writing 'the cupboard underneath the stairs', you could write something descriptive about their room, for example, 'the poster-filled room' or 'the room that's green all over'. Describe the room. If you don't know what their room is exactly like or you just can't bother doing it, you can leave that step out.
  9. Do steps 4-6 with your envelope, except for when it comes to brushing it, do it nice and even so the glue at the tip doesn't get soaked up.
  10. Leave the envelope and the letter to dry. Leave it 24 hours for best effect, but if you can't bother to wait, you can leave it to dry for a shorter period of time. Tip: stick your hand into the opening of the envelope to check that the outside and the inside has both dried up.
  11. Anyway, after it has been dried, fold the letter neatly (in your best folding!) into quarters and slip it into the envelope. Careful, because since they're both soaked and dried up, they might rip easily.
  12. Seal the envelope and place it somewhere secret but somewhere you won't forget.
  13. Arrange a time with your parents going over to your friend's house (the friend your Hogwarts letter is for, of course). Make sure both sets of parents agreed and nobody knows about your scheme. If your parents ask, make up a reasonable and believable excuse, for example, I miss my friend alot.
  14. When you arrive at their house, trick them into a room with good view of their letterbox.
  15. Now it's time to put up some of your acting skills! Suddenly look at the letterbox and say 'hey, I think I see a letter. Let's go fetch it!'
  16. Make sure you're running ahead of your friend. Try hiding the letter - which is in your hands - away from your friend's sight. Pretend to check the mailbox from the other side (the side where they post in your mail) whilst slipping in your letter. Here's a tip: hold onto the front of the letterbox with the hand holding the letter whilst opening the letterbox on the other side with your other hand.
  17. Read the letter out loud yourself to your friend. Then, some more acting skills - act nonchalant and say something like 'hey, Hogwarts is real?'
  18. Pretend to be real excited about it. Once your friend sees you so excited about it, and when they keep thinking of the letter, they will get excited too.
  19. Offer to tell their parents. You might want to explain a few times about the letter before the parents understand. And you have to hide your smile - parents always have that secret weapon to tell when something is going wrong.
  20. The next day phone up your friend and tell them it's a prank you played on them. Anyway, you can't keep a secret hidden forever...can you?
Or, you could make the acceptance letter for yourself if you don't want it to be for your friends. For yourself will be easier - you can just put it in your letterbox and get it out the next day, or you can wait for someone else to get it out. Just make sure you don't get an actual - real - Hogwarts letter the next day!
