Dollhouse Miniature Harry Potter Honeydukes Sweet Shop-Themed Witch Hat

Remember this picture?

I asked you all what you thought I might do with these two items, a bench and a hat box in my current Honeydukes theme.

I haven't had time to work on the bench yet, but I did manage to squeeze in that little hat box :)

Want to see what I did with it?
How does one work in a hat into a Sweet Shop theme?  Make a Honeydukes colors, candy-themed hat of course! 

I decided to take the Honeydukes Sweet Shop one step further by making this lovely and fun candy-themed witch hat complete with hat box in the classic Honeydukes color theme. It is made from a combination of top grain leather and fabric. I thought this fun idea would be something available for sale in the sweet shop, that they would have their own signature hat decked out in wizarding candies :) Everything but the box was hand-crafted by me, although I did decorate it from unfinished wood to what it is now. This amazing hat is the only one in existence, because I'm sure no one has thought of this but me at this point in time. The decorated hat box and hat stands at 4 1/2 inches tall and the stand is fixed securely to the top of the hat box. 1/12 scale are the pictures (some terrible) some ok:

Available here in my store:

So what do you think?  Do you like it?  Hate it?  Leave me some honest comments!

For future orders for this type of set (although not exactly the same)
this is what they look like together as a set:

See how all the colors mix together perfectly? 
I do have more items made for the trolley but I just now got my doilies in the mail so now I can finish this sweet trolley up so yay!  Check back in for finished pictures of the trolley tomorrow night :)


  1. Tara, you always come up with something different! The new Honeyduke's range is marvellous.

  2. Lol thanks Janice :) I chalk it up to being a kid at heart still :) Wild imagination! And movie themes help me out with that even further. I have several custom orders to fill but I keep sneaking in little side projects as I go along. Next the little bench will have the same paint theme with jack-o-lanterns (each with a different expression on it's face) full of assorted candies mentioned in the HP movies :) They will have scoops in them for dishing out candies and a paper bag holder. Should be fun :) This hat is now sold, I should go change the blog post to reflect that now I guess :)

  3. Not surprised it sold straight away Tara, its so different and you have the colours to match perfectly! Cant wait to see the bench! Kate xxx

  4. Do you sell these HP items? If so where can I order them. Looking to make my granddaughter a HP themed box of sorts. I have a Advent box with 24 cubby holes so trying to see if I can get enough HP themed stuff to make a whole box or just some cubbies??
