Step 1: Materials Required.
1. An LED (of any colour)
3. Paper (of size according to your wand)
5. Paper Clips
6. Electric Tape
7. Acrylic/Poster Paint (shade of your choice)
8. Drinking Straw.
Tools Required :-
1. Hot Glue Gun
2. Soldering Machine.
Step 2: Making the Circuit.
Now take the battery. I have taken 3 button cells and joined them with electric tape but you can also use any other battery. But before connecting the battery, please check its width as we don't want our wand to be very broad. The voltage of the battery can depend upon your LED.
Now stick one wire with the battery using the tape and leave the other open. Please take care of the negative and positive terminal. Now take another piece of wire and attach it to the other side of the battery. Your circuit is complete. To test it, connect the two open ends of the wires and see if LED is glowing or not.
If it is working then slowly slide the it into a drinking straw.
Step 3: Making the Outer Covering.
Trim the extra paper using scissors to make the base equally round.
Your outer structure of the wand is ready!!
Step 4: Making the Switches.
Now take these switches and solder then with the open ends of the wires of our circuit.
After successful soldering the light will glow whenever the two pins will come in contact with each other.
Step 5: Attaching the Switches and Making It Stiff.
Now in order to make it stiff, fill the hollow inside of paper with loads of Hot glue. This will make your wand stiff. The hotness of the glue can make the rest of it to melt to a little extent but it won't slide down. It will be better if you hold it with the opposite end and let the glue dry completely.
Step 6: Giving the Finishing Touch.
Colour it with the colours of your heart and finish your wand. You can also give some textures with Hot Glue or by sticking Tissue Paper to make it more attractive and realistic.
Now it's all ready to perform your spells like Lumos and the Patronus charm. Enjoy!!!
