DIY Cardboard Harry Potter Erised Mirror Tutorial and Template from Delicious Reads.

The mirror appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and is inscribed, “Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi” or “I show not your face but your heart’s desire”.

This cheap DIY requires cardboard, paint, a cheap mirror, lots of glue sticks and patience. But look at the result!
