Harry Potter Wands



If you are a massive Harry Potter fan like me you will know that the official wands are extremely expensive. This craft idea is really simple and effective – the wands are made from everyday items that you probably have in your craft box at home.

What you will need:

  • A wooden stick or wooden chopstick – this will be the main base for your wand.
  • Paints – brown or black.
  • A glue gun
  • 4-6 glue gun sticks


  1.  First make sure that your chopstick or stick is the right length, in the Harry Potter books the wands are around 11-13 inches long.
  2. Next heat up your glue gun and insert your first glue stick. Start to shape the handle by winding the glue around one end of the wand.
  3. Once you are happy with your handle you can use the hot glue to create a design on the handle.
  4. Wait for the glue to go hard. Finally use your paint to colour your wand: it may need more than one coat!
  5. Cast some spells with your magnificent homemade wand!

I hope you enjoyed this lovely craft idea, it was inspired by you tube designs.
