Introduction: Harry Potter Wizard Magic Wands DIY!

About: Hi! My name is Natalie! I have an awesome husband that lets me be a Play-at-home mom of 3! We homeschool and do projects daily! Check out my blog Doodlecraft for more awesomeness!

Spells and charms are not uncommon at our house.
Only usually they are performed with a carrot,
a chopstick or something like that.
So we made Magic Wands!

You need Cardstock Paper. (about 65 lb.)
Also, tons of hot glue. 
We used about 5 sticks for each wand.

Step 1: Immobulus Paper!

Roll your paper into a tight tube.  One end slightly larger than the other.
Hot glue in place.

Step 2: Accio Hot Glue!

Fill that tube with HOT GLUE. 
I did this part, not the kids.  The tube gets hot too.

Hold it upright and pump glue into the top.
It will drip down and dry.
Keep filling.

We stuck them in the fridge to cool off faster!

Then turn them over and fill in from the tiny end.
Make a little mound of glue on each end and let cool completely.

Add decorative swirls to the outside of the tube and let that dry.

Step 3: Expecto Patronum!

Paint your wand!

Paint designs, runes or add crystals for the perfect wizard wand.
They are heavy, sturdy and feel like a high quality wand.
Wizard duels haven't been the same since!

Pretty sure mine has a Phoenix feather coil inside.

These would be great to have filled ahead of time for a birthday party...let all the kids paint their own!

Great for Halloween props!  So easy and cheap!

This is awesome! I want to try and make something similar. Not sure when though. Makes you want to be a kid again. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! We love these too! My daughter convinced me to let her put a lego crystal in the end of hers...and since we got a box full for free, I let her! :)
