Abracadabra!

and alakazzzzam! Look what I made! Magic wands!! I love these guys. Inspired by pinterest, I decided the grands, who are all enamored of Harry Potter, would appreciate a little token of handmade wizardy and made them each a wand of magic. :)

This is how they started:


Add hot glue and decorate with beads if desired.

Let cool completely - doesn't take all that long. Add paint. I used browns then lightly brushed gold on them so they look oldish. Seal with mod podge if you want to. I don't know if it's necessary, but I did.


Add ribbon if you want to. I thought they would be more fun to swish magic around if the ribbons were swishing too. :) I made 8 of them (the pics are not the same four).

Voila! Magic wands, Harry Potter style. Sorta. Well, maybe. Ok I've never seen Harry Potter or even read the books so I wouldn't know if they are or not! LOL But hey.....MAGIC! :)

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. These are quite special and magical for sure! They remind me of carved walking sticks and do look like old wood. Cool project. Now you can watch the movies with the grands!
