A witch/ Warlock wand

Even though we covered how to make a wand I didn’t really do a step by step, so I made one yesterday. So here is my step by step guide.

I used a 12″ long Wilton bamboo dowel rod ( from cake section in Hobbycraft)

So first we need to sand the end of the dowel to a soft point. You want to go all the way round and at different angles.

So now how are you decorating your wand. I have a ‘left over halloween bits and bobs bag’ so going to use some little plastic spiders and some bigger spiders that were rings but I cut the ring part off as just soft plastic.

So before I start attaching I am going to paint my dowel with a dark red acrylic paint.

No I’m going to glue the bits on using a glue gun.I am going to leave a space for where I will hold the wand.

Now I’m going to add glue to the handle so it has a better feel to hold.

I have put a little detail with the glue gun on the point end of the wand.

You could leave it like this but I went over the glue with the same red acrylic and added a little black as well.

Apart from a little drying time they are really quick to make and lots of fun. I am off to cast some spells!!!!!!
