How To Make: Harry Potter Hogwart’s Great Hall Cutlery

If you’re throwing a party based on Hogwart’s Great Hall, you need these.

Not ‘maybe they would look cute’.



These would’ve been made of metal, however metalworks isn’t my forte. Clay however, seems to hold up pretty well. Doing it again, I might suggest putting in a metal rod down the middle for more support. I haven’t exactly squeezed or tossed the cutlery set around to see how well they’d hold up. But I wouldn’t count on them holding up being dropped on the floor. They will, though, handle being used as cutlery at dinner.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall cutlery DIY

I decided I was going to make these when I saw them at The Making of Harry Potter (sick of hearing that I went there? Sorry. But you’ll hear it another dozen times by the time I’ve finished all my posts of HP. It was like swimming in inspiration.). It’s those small details you don’t really pay attention to in the movie. You see it and whoosh, onto the next scene. So here’s some close up photos of what I saw. You’ll get an idea for the rest of the dinnerware as well.


Oink. If I could’ve made the pig’s head carafes, I would’ve. However my carving skills aren’t that good. But, I’ll find a way yet.


So now that you’ve had a good look at the cutlery, Ill show you how I made this easy peasy Hogwart’s Great Hall cutlery set.

  • a cutlery set (preferably with a narrow handle if you want it to stay attached or a metal head with plastic handle so it can be snapped off.
  • air dry clay
  • acrylic paint in black as well as a metallic paint to mix in for a metal finish.


  1. If using a plastic handled cutlery set wiggle the metal end back and forth until it snaps off.
  2. Take some airdry clay and roll out a big long roll about x cm thick and x cm long.
  3. Slice into three even sections.
  4. Press the metal end of the fork, knife and spoon into one end of each of the clay rolls. Press the clay around the end to seal it together.
  5. On the other end of the clay, taper it slightly and curl the ends (as seen in photo). Use water to both smooth the texture as well as help the ‘curl’ end stick together better.
  6. Let dry for 24 hours.
  7. Mix up some black acrylic paint with, if you have some, a metallic paint in a dark colour. It’ll give the cutlery set a bit of metallic shine.
  8. Paint and let dry on some baking paper.
  9. You can finish it off with some glue to help seal it.
