How to Create 15-Minute Magic Wands?

STEP ONE

To begin the Harry Potter Magic Wands, gather all supplies. Remove the wooden chopsticks from their paper wrapper and separate them into two pieces. Sand any rough edges with a foam sanding block. I recently discovered these foam sanding blocks at Dollar Tree and they are perfect for crafting with the kiddos!

STEP TWO

Using a glue gun and glue sticks, create a pattern at the larger end of the wooden chopstick. To retain the integrity of your pattern, rotate the chopstick slowly as the glue sets up. Either hot glue or low temp glue will work for this project. Use stripes, drips, and polka dots, and let your imagination run wild!

STEP THREE

Layer the glue to make patterns and create a chunky, thick handle. The fun part of this craft is that each wand will be totally unique. The wooden chopsticks are tapered at the end making them the perfect base for wands!

STEP FOUR

Basecoat each wand with Raw Umber, Graphite, Burnt Umber, or Dark Chocolate acrylic craft paint. Make sure to get into all the nooks and crannies of the glue design. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Set aside to dry. I love Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.

STEP FIVE

Dry brush the Raw Umber wand with Milk Chocolate, the Graphite wand with Neutral Grey, the Burnt Umber wand with Mississippi Mud, and the Dark Chocolate wand with Honey Brown acrylic craft paints. To dry brush, dip just the tip of the bristles of a dry paintbrush in the acrylic craft paint, and then lightly brush on the wand hitting only the raised areas. This will highlight the wand and give it depth.

For durability, you can seal the wands with a spray-on clear sealer (in a well-ventilated area) or brush on a decoupage medium.
