Are you a fan of the wizarding world? Do you enjoy reading fantasy novels such as Harry Potter? Have you ever wished to be a wizard? Have you always known deep down that you were destined to be a wizard? Well say no more then, because we have the perfect technique to assist you in creating your very own magical wand, allowing you to look and feel like the wizard you already know that you are.
Creative wand design ideas:
This DIY article will teach you the principles of making yourself your very own, personal customized wand, whether you wish to construct a wand to feel like a part of the world of wizardry or want a nice costume, we can help. Finding good strong sticks is the first thing you need to do.
If your children, like to collect sticks then there should be a large collection of sticks outside already that you may utilize. They’ve already whittled down the field to the finest of the best. You should then select anything that isn’t too flawless as the imperfection is what will then make the wand perfect.
The hooks, twists, and flaws are ideal for adding a vintage vibe to your wizard wands as that is how you will achieve the unique look. Now you wouldn’t want your hard work of creating the wands, decorating it, spending hours on it to go to waste.
Which is why when you first start looking for sticks, look for ones that have a thick bark; otherwise, your wand may break easily or when used too often, or the embellishments may even fall off after a while.
While you should practice caution when using hot glue, using too much of it isn’t always a bad thing here because it will let you mold your wand, especially the handle, however you deem fit.
It also has the ability to enlarge sections of your wand. Experiment with various materials to see what you can create. If you can’t find any sticks outside, wood rods or pencils are suitable substitutes.
Supplies you need:
- Different Sticks
- Glue sticks & hot glue gun
- Colorful paints and paintbrushes
- Mod Podge
- Decorative items
How to actually do it:
Cover your work area with newspaper to avoid damaging it with paints and glue. Then, go on and apply hot glue from the gun to the ends of the stick a few times to get a good grasp and some smoothness. Then add jewels and other decorative items. You can add more glue wherever you please to alter the form and pattern of the wand. Once the glue dries, paint the wand in your favorite color and set it aside to dry. You can then get creative by adding sparkles, glitters, ribbons, diamantes to give the wand a unique and more personalized look. And there you have it, your very own personal wand. Happy wizarding!
