Step 1: Materials
- Hot Glue Gun
- Chopsticks (you can also use sticks from your garden)
- Wool or String (any colour)
- Paint (Black, Brown or Grey)
Step 2: Glue
Using the hot glue gun, place glue around the thick end of the chopstick
Step 3: Wool
Working quickly before the glue cools, wrap wool tightly around the area where you have placed the glue.
Then use the wool to make the design of your choice.
I also covered the outside of the wool with a thin layer of glue to make sure that it stays in place.
Step 4: Paint
Using the colour of your choice, paint the chopstick, making sure to cover the colour of the wool completely.
Step 5: Finished Wands
You now have a finished Harry Potter wand to add to your costume!
