For the HP craftalong potions class we had to craft something that would help me remember. I decided I would really like a garden sign that shows all the places I would like to go from the Harry Potter books. 

Hogwarts with the outline of Hogwarts, The Burrow with a wellington boot and a garden gnome



Stained old Hogsmeade sign, and Godric's Hollow with his sword behind and a little deathly hollows sign

I love how it turned out and it helps spread my geekyness outside.  I also have a platform 9 3/4 sign above my door out there too.

With all the places you want to visit, I suggest you may want to add Gringotts  and start with it.

What a beautiful post! I like how the drawings fit the name on each sign. The painting is great too.

Oh wow, this is magnificent! A bit of a shame that the Knight bus is missing its K (or has this been changed in the American edition?) but the whole this is stunning, this would be amazing to have in our front yard!

Thank you all for the nice comments.  There are so many more places I ended up having to do general locations instead of stores or distinct places.  I would of had way to many signs Wink
