This is just one way to make your own wand using supplies you might have laying around the house. 

Either way, if you had to go out and buy everything I used, it wouldn't be very expensive. 


NOTE: **The picture is the FIRST wand I made. I assumed that it would be a success and so I decided to make an instructable right from the beginning...the glue gun messed me up.** :D

Step 1: Supplies

Ok, here is what you'll need: 

- Paint  (varies, depending on your design)

- Big AND small paint brushes 

- Some kind of clear coat (I used Sculpey gloss glaze, but you can try using clear nail polish)

- Glue gun

- a wand shaped stick (I have the back of  an old, broken paintbrush)

NOTE: **I ended up using silver spray paint instead of the silver GLITTER paint I bought a while ago by mistake**

Step 2: Painting

Ok so first, paint the body of the wand. Simple enough. :)

I painted my wand black and made the handle green. (SLYTHERIN PRIDE) 

Step 3: Glue Gun

Ok. So now, use your glue gun to make embellishments. You'll be painting those in another color, so be aware how thick or thin they are. 

I have 2 glue guns, one is thinner than the other.


Step 4: Paint Some More

This is where I used the spray paint. I just sprayed into the cap until I had enough and then I used the smallest brush I had to paint the embellishments. 

NOTE: **If you're impatient like me, you can use a blow dryer to dry off the paint faster. As long as you put thin layers of paint, nothing bad will happen.**

Then just paint some glaze over the whole thing. I put 1 coat on mine, but I recommend at least 2. 

<p>Would it be cool if I used this in a magazine I need to make in school? I have to have a DIY project, and since I love Harry Potter, I though this would be cool.</p>
<p>I actually didnt have everything needed, but i had nail polish (and coating), A red brush sharpie, old paintbrush, and a hot glue gun</p><p>(SLYTHERIN PRIDE!!!)</p>
