 First let me give a big thanks Kaptin Scarlet for inspiration and his instructable http://www.instructables.com/id/A-really-magic-Harry-Potter-wand-for-Lumos-and-Rev/. Very cool work and definitely my inspiration, among the many other awesome wands made on here. Also, any feedback would be welcomed, would like to hear from ya'. If this "ible" has motivated you then please rate it and be sure to place a vote in the contest! :)

 Be sure to take a look at the Albus Dumbledore Elder Wand I entered in the "Make It Glow" contest... http://www.instructables.com/id/Professor-Dumbledores-Incredible-Illuminating-L/ 

  I have two sons, 21 and 9 - yep, a bit of an age gap, but one of the few things they have in common is the love of Harry Potter (...and Star Wars, me included)...and of course now I am hooked on this wand making thing too...so I will be making many more I am sure. Thanks for the sickness "Kaptin"! lol

 So let's get down to this "Making it Glow" challange with a illuminating Harry Potter inspired wand. This was not difficult and there really is no way to mess up if you take your time. Now it does involve soldering, but I am a complete novice at soldering and still pulled this off. So do not cut yourself short, give it a try!! Hey I am new to this stuff too, no excuses! You can exclude the LED/battery pack section and still make an awesome wand.

Materials...

- 2 or 3 sheets of heavy drawing paper ( a lighter weight will still work)

- White glue

- Hot glue gun with glue sticks

- Acrylic Paints and brushes AND a few damp paper towels

- LED ear piece night-light (I got mine from Harbor Freight for a buck or something close)

- extra length of wire

- Soldering gun with flux core solder wire
