For their birthday party I made wands for all the kids to take home, but I never got around to posting the tutorial for the wands! I know, I know...bad blogger. So, since Halloween is coming up and I will have a little Draco, Luna, and Hermione running around, I figured now was a great time to post the wand tutorial.
Brown spray paint
1) Using a hot glue gun, add lines and dots of hot glue to the chopsticks in whatever design you like.
Be careful not to burn your fingers! I hear these things are pretty awesome for protecting your fingers, though. (affiliate link)
2) Spray paint the wands and allow them to dry. I poked holes in a box and put the wands in the holes so I could get the best coverage while painting.
The wands took 2-3 days to dry.
3) The wand still felt a little tacky because of the hot glue pieces on them, so my Hubby had the brilliant idea to dust them with a little cornstarch. It took away the tackiness, and it made the little details on the wands pop!
That's it! All the kids at the party loved their wands and how they were all so different. And, they were super cheap and easy to make...my favorite kind of craft!
What do your kids want to be for Halloween? Are you guys Harry Potter fans?
