Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
This is my first instructible, so I wasn't taking as many pictures as I should have. The supplies you'll need are
1: a bead shaped like the one in the one in the picture. (a half circle bead)
2: a round bead.
3: a single chopstick (the length of this is the length of your wand)
4: toothpick.
5: a paper towel.

Tools:
1: hot glue gun.
2: scissors.
3: hobby knife

Step 2: Connect The Beads

Cut the toothpick down to a size that you think will look good, then put the pointed end of the toothpick into the circular bead and glue it there. The blunt end of the toothpick should be put against the circular part of the half circle bead. Glue it on.

I messed up in this picture, I did the wrong design and forgot to take a picture when I did, the next picture will show how it should look, but it's already been painted. Make four walls with the hot glue gun, you can make these by putting the glue on one layer at a time until you have the walls. I made another mistake (which I haven't corrected yet) the walls are supposed to be in a con shape, the point being on the circular bead. Your going to have to put a thick layer of glue on the toothpick before this step to keep it from being flimsy when your done.

Step 4: Glue Onto Chopstick

Glue onto chopstick and make sure it's straight.

Step 5: Add Paper Towel

First cut a long, sort of thick piece of paper towel. Next wrap the paper towel around the top of the chopstick and glue the end.

Step 6: Glue And Add More

Picture of Glue And Add More
Glue around the paper towel strip, first make a thick layer of glue around it (so it's harder feeling than paper towels) and then do strokes with the glue gun parallel with the chopstick (for detail). Add more thinner pieces of paper towel, and repeat again until you have 5 oval/circles around your chopstick. Glue in between pieces (so it's round) and make sure it's not at the same level or higher than the towels.

Step 7: Continue Adding Towels

Continue adding paper towels and glueing in between until you reach this point.

And I changed colors again, didn't feel like taking the time to make the grain of the wood, it took me a few hours to get these colors. Stubb, I'm sorry but you won't be able to see any magic, death paid off its last debt to me the day before I made the wand. I'll just say having an anti gravity skateboard isn't as fun as it sounds.
