Make Harry Potter wands for your next party and have a stupifyingly good time! It’s perfect fun to go along with your Harry Potter scavenger hunt (click to see how easy it is to make one with Riddle Me). Then have participants duel it out in the back yard and see who is king of the incantation!
Step 1: Gather your materials, chopsticks, beads, hot glue, and paint.
Step 2: Apply hot glue to the chopstick
Step 3: Apply beads to the glue (color doesn’t matter)
Step 4: Shape the wand
Take advantage of how runny the glue is while it’s hot to make neat handles
You can roll almost cold glue between your hands to shape it more
Step 5: Roll beads on
For extra effect, add mini beads while the glue is hot and press them slightly into the glue.
Step 6: Let wands cool
Step 7: Paint your wands
Using different shades of paint, paint your new Harry Potter wands. You can just buy a couple colors like white and brown and mix them slightly to get different shades.
Step 8: Let dry
Step 9: Identify your wand (optional)
