My son is reading the Harry Potter series (partially for enjoyment and partially to fulfill reading requirements for school). He has a book report of sorts due soon where he need to bring in 15 items that pertain to the book he is reading and talk about them. We decided he should have a wand to bring in (and play with when the book report is over). My husband was asking me for ideas on how to make one. I came across this tutorial and we decided to give it a try. It was easier than we thought it was going to be. Everyone had their part. My husband and I made the base out of standard printer paper and decorated with hot glue. My son and husband painted the wands with acrylic paint. My daughter begged to play with hers RIGHT NOW during the whole process (hey, that’s an important part). They didn’t take long to make and everyone was quite pleased with the end result. My daughter already bent hers, but that’s ok – we can just make another!
Here’s the end result. I apologize in advance for the poor photography. My camera on my phone did NOT want to take good pics of these wands.
I’ve been learning to crochet. Watch for my next post which will probably include my novice attempts at crochet and possibly even amigurumi!
