How to Make A “Weasley Is Our King” Pin

DIY weasley is our king pin

Weasley Is Our King! A slogan that’s equally complimentary and insulting. 

I always thought it was interesting how this little crown design is printed in the Harry Potter books. It’s not like they print too many other designs so it makes this design special. For the 20th anniversary release of the movies, I decided to make a Weasley is Our King pin out of cereal box cardboard and a safety pin.

It’s a quick and easy craft to make and would look great on anyone’s wizard robes!
