Harry Potter Wands

No respectful Harry Potter party will be complete without wands. Where did you get the wands was the questions of the night? We made the wands (from our stash of crafts).

Sorry I forgot to take pictures during the making process.

Products needed-
wooden dowels, hot glue, brown & black paint, paint brush and damp washcloth.
1 Drizzle hot glue onto wooden dowel to make dowel look like wand. Hold until set.
2 Paint wand brown and let dry.
3 Mix black paint with a little water. Paint should be runny.
4 Lightly paint wand black, while wet wipe with damp washcloth. Brown paint should show thru. Remember to rub a little more around the handle area. A well-used wand will have a little bit of a worn look.

So, Abracadabra (in the wise words of Steve Miller) and Hocus Pocus too, let’s see what YOU CAN DO! •


  1. This idea is simple awesome! Maybe ill try it to my hubby's bday!

    1. You bet they were so easy and fun. When you do make your wands please send us pictures.
