What are the Deathly Hallows? If you have ever read any of the Harry Potter books OR watched the movies I don’t need to answer this question.
Harry Potter fans and those of the wizarding world of Hogwarts don’t need to be told that July 31st is Harry Potter’s birthday either.
Every year, during the month of July, I see more and more creative cross stitch designs on the market to celebrate Harry’s birthday, or just for the love of the books and movies.
This project is one I created a few years ago as a great way to combine my favorite hobby and my love of wizarding books.

For the last couple of years, I have tried to make some sort of craft project to celebrate my love for the Harry Potter books and movies for Harry’s birthday. Last year I made Harry Potter Mason Jar Pencil Holders.
One year I decided to make a bright and colorful cross-stitch pattern featuring the Deathly Hallows symbols. This pattern uses 14-count Aida cross-stitch fabric and bright threads of floss in DMC colors.
Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Cross Stitch
For this project you will need:
- 14-count Aida cloth
- Embroidery threads
- Black 6″ embroidery hoop
- Cross Stitch Needle
- Deathly Hallows Cross Stitch Pattern
I have to be honest with you and admit there really wasn’t a “pattern” for this project when I first made it. Since it is so simple in design, I just created the pattern on graph paper and free-hand backstitched the smaller versions of the Deathly Hallows images.
However, since first creating this project, I have actually designed a pattern online using the website Stitch Fiddle so that I could share a free pdf file download with you for the pattern.
Disclaimer: This pattern is for personal use only.
This pattern includes three different sizes for the Deathly Hallows symbol. Two were created using just a back-stitch stitch, and one larger one using cross-stitches. You can adjust this pattern any way you like for your own version, including the color of the DMC floss for each one.
I also randomly picked bright-colored threads for each backstitched pattern of the Deathly Hallows. But for the pattern I just created, I include suggested DMC colors of floss. The larger pattern is stitched with two strands of DMC 310 Black and the backstitch is done with two strands as well. Your choice of colors is completely up to you.

I hope you enjoy recreating this pattern as much as I enjoyed just sitting down and creating a carefree pattern to honor Harry Potter’s birthday celebration.
