4. Repair Your Clothes
Reparo! If your Christmas jumper has a hole in it, we urge you not to throw it away. Channel your inner magical Mrs. Molly Weasley and patch it up! A simple bit of thread can easily close that hole. Alternatively, if you have a hole in a cotton blouse or shirt, one option could be to add a panel or two. Beyond clothes, a piece of Spellotape or a dash of glue can go a long way. While wrapping a wad of Spellotape around your glasses may not exactly scream “Chosen One,” other objects could easily be repaired! Before Obliviating your broken shoe out of existence, a line of superglue along the sole can easily reattach it.
5. Transform your Clothes
Our working title is Transfiguring with Tuney. Yes, you read correctly, for we are taking eco-advice from none other than Mrs. Dursley! While this may come as a “bit of a nasty shock,” and while Petunia’s reason for DIY-ing Harry’s Stonewall High uniform weren’t exactly altruistic, it is a concept that greatly aids a zero-waste lifestyle. Do you have a dress or skirt that is a bit tight around the waist? Transform the fabric into a drawstring bag, a headband, or even use it to add a patchwork effect to existing clothes. However, patience is a virtue here. We solemnly swear that if Ron had spent more than seven seconds researching “tailoring spells” prior to the Yule Ball, he could have siriusly reduced his resemblance to Great Aunt Tessie…
So repeat after us: We solemnly swear that waste is no good! Magic managed.
