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.
