Instructions
Green and silver are the colors of Slytherin house, and you'll need to show them off on Draco's tie, scarf and robe.

Scarf
Make a Slytherin, such as the Slytherin Scarf pattern available in about.com's DIY Fashion section, or one of Leaky Crafts' own knit or crochet versions.

Tie
Start out with a green tie. Use silver enamel paint that you would use to paint a model car to add the lines on the tie. Fabric paint will puff up too much for this step, and the silver enamel paint will nicely soak into the tie for a more natural look. Place a ruler against your brush while you work to get the straightest lines. Make two thick lines, then skip an inch and make a very thin line. Skip another inch and repeat this pattern.

Robes
Make your own Gryffindor Robe in any size using the How-To Slytherin Robes tutorial available in about.com's DIY Fashion section, or the Simple Canon Robes tutorial here on Leaky Crafts.

Hair
Draco wears his platinum blond locks cut straight across above the ears. This is typically known as the 'bowl cut' because it can be achieved by sticking a bowl on the top of your head and cutting right around it. For a younger Malfoy look, slick the hair back to the left side.

To be an older Malfoy, style the bangs with a just bit of gel to create a slight part at the center of the forehead, but leave the bangs to hang almost in your eyes. If you don't have the right hair color, you'll need to spring for a cheap wig or even bleach your hair.

If you have especially dark hair then it's going to be very difficult to get such a white-yellow color with any kind of hair dye. I suggest spending the ten bucks on a wig instead because bleach can be very hard on your hair.

Wand
Any thin stick can be made into a wand. Peel off any bark and use a piece of sandpaper to smooth down the sides of the stick. For a pointed end, use a small knife to whittle the end of the stick. Shaving the end of the stick should be done with adult supervision. Apply a dark or light wood varnish to your smoothed wand.

You could also use about.com DIY Fashion's Easy Pencil Wand for kids, or one of the many wand tutorials available on Leaky Crafts in the Woodwork and Other Crafts sections, or spring for a toy Harry Potter wand.

School Uniform
Look in your local thrift stores for a white button-down shirt and a black or gray vest to wear over it.

Wear a pair of black slacks, or make your own simple black drawstring pants, using the tutorial available on about.com in their DIY Fashion section.

Black dress shoes will work for your feet.
