You dream of Harry Potter. You have read the books 100 times. You can list 100 things the movies changed. You have been angered by the patronus you were given and the house you were sorted into.

You, want to have a Harry Potter backyard movie night.

We know this because we are that person as well. So, recently we turned our backyard into a mini¬†backyard cinema with many nods to the wizarding world. When I say we, I mean that in the sense of I bought many different kinds of beers and also didn’t burden my partner with my complete lack of creative execution. These are her creations and they are awesome.

Budget-wise, this was also not a huge commitment. Many of the images can be printed off online and signs have been created using boards we already had around the house.

With that in mind, here are some of the pieces you need to Wizard-Up your backyard.
