Make the Ultimate DIY Harry Potter Wands with just two supplies — hot glue and paint! This is a great craft for parties and groups.
Today I was walking in the woods around the lake and thinking about all things magical because I am in the midst of a Harry Potter movie-a-thon. I came across these sticks and they just looked like they needed to be turned into the Ultimate DIY Harry Potter Wands so I brought them home and transformed them. They came out so perfecto that I have to share them with you here.
Materials Needed for Ultimate DIY Harry Potter Wands:
- Hot Glue
- DecoArt Patio Paint Assorted Colors
- Paint Brush
Directions to Make Ultimate DIY Harry Potter Wands:
Brush all of the dirt off of the sticks. Plug in your hot glue gun and let it heat up.
Drizzle hot glue on the sticks either randomly or in patterns. I did each one of the four a little different. It was actually super fun!
After the glue cooled completely, I did go back and add some more details on some of them.
Create a pallet for your paints. I like to use a white plate.
With a paintbrush, mix the paints as desired and paint the sticks. Because this is messy, you might want to have a covering on your counter first.
I created an extra little stick into a wand for Hagrid too!
Look at his perfect little magical wand.
They dried and came out perfect!
OTHER Harry Potter Craft and DIY Ideas:
A few years ago I made licorice wands for a party. Check them out HERE. There is a fun word search puzzle over there too.
I am pretty CRAZY about all things magical. There are LOADS of projects on this blog and one post that shares a lot of them in one place right HERE for you. There are lots of ideas but I LOVE the painted rocks using DecoArt paints best.
For this fun project, I did create a NEW printable puzzle. It has some of my favorite things that characters say in the sixth book/movie–The Half Blood Prince.
So yay. Flick and Swish.
Be sure to check back soon when I will be sharing another whole round of magical crafts. If you love these Harry Potter wands, please help me share them on Facebook and Pinterest! Cheers,
