A Gryffindor crest tapestry throw makes for a exquisite wall decor idea. If you have not been sorted into Gryffindor, the other houses are also available as tapestries.

Again though if it were me I know exactly how I would use these! I’d buy a tapestry for each of the Houses and hang them from the ceiling to recreate the Hogwarts Great Hall. I can just picture it now! Oh my…I just had another idea! What if we sorted the guests into Houses? Maybe the Slytherin guests wouldn’t be too happy about this…
