If you have a little Harry Potter fan in your household then you’ll no doubt be inundated with requests to buy Harry Potter Wands. These are in the region of about £30 each! We’ve been lucky and got away with only getting one so far because my eldest has been making his own wands. He has devised a really quick simple way to do it and is having endless fun with them This is how he does it:
Sellotape (which you can paint over AKA magic tape)
To make an imaginary super power wand (not featured in books but impressive) called: The Dumbledore, Harry, Voldemort, Elder Ender Wand
Step 1: Lay out cocktail sticks in a row and stick some magic tape across them.
Step 2: Place your length of cocktail sticks around the chopstick at the bottom and affix using double sided tape and magic tape to make a sort of handle.
Step 3: Wind the string around the chopstick and affix with more magic tape.
Step 4: Place on a sheet of paper (to protect the surface) and paint using the acrylic paint of your choice. Leave it to dry and be patient!
Ron’s Wand (upto year 3)
Step 1: Cut out 2 thin strips of yellow paper of the same length of the chop stick.
Step:2 Place tape just a bit bigger than the yellow strip and place on yellow strip around the base of the chopstick
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 leaving a 0.5 cm gap between the two strips
Step 1: Lay out cocktail sticks and place strip of sellotape to hold them together.
Step 2: attach the strip of cocktail strips using more tape and double sided tape.
Wind a brown pipe cleaner around the chopstick. Attach at both ends with sellotape.
