The Wand Shop

Everyone loves Harry Potter, but nothing says you are a true fan like having your own wand. Unfortunately, buying a wand can be very expensive. However, you can make your own wand for under five dollars.

<<<< Begin with a dowel rod. This one here is .79cm X 91.44cm. Then follow these simple steps.

1) Cut dowel to desired length. Usually around 12 inches.

2) Use hot glue, beads, chain, or string to decorate you dowel. Design the handle using multiple materials, and make sure the wand's handle fits in your hand comfortably.

3) Wait for glue to dry.

4) Paint the dowel. Before painting, the wand will look pretty silly, but don't worry. Use an acrylic paint (color of your choice) to cover the dowel. The paint will add texture and make your wand look like a wand.

The glue, beads, chain, and string will texturize the wand and look pretty cool once it is covered by the paint. In the end, you have an awesome HP wand to show off.
