Home without the Oldest Pea so what could the Pheebs and I get ourselves into???
~~~We made Harry Potter Wands~~~
We just Googled how to and saw SO many tutorials! All pretty great, some easy, some so detailed that it was cool to watch but a little too hard for the 9yr old. The easier tutorials were simply chop sticks, hot glue gun, and paint ….some added glitter so of course we did too~
I made the first one and had her watch told her not to touch the glue or the end because of the burn factor and then let her go. Can we just look at that sheer determination and not the unbrushed hair bahaha !
After the glue was wrapped around the chopstick she treated it like a troll
Because we didn’t want a flat side to the wand we let them dry like this in the glitter jar:
The dry pretty quickly and if you don’t like how it turned out you can peel it off and start again.
Then once they are dry you do the paint and glitter.
And one special wand for one special person.
The week we made the wands was also Teacher Appreciation Week so she made her teacher one and then made her a sweet painting to match.
We hope she liked it!
We hope you like this post and let us know if you made wands and how you did it !
This is the face I love my crazy little pea 🙂
