Using the tutorial from http://boxycolonial.com/diy-harry-potter-wands/, I made wands out of dowels.
- Cut dowels to 12″
- Cover handles with hot glue. Trial and error experience. Be generous with the glue and try different techniques.
- Paint with various acrylic paints.
- Once they were painted, use a watered-down gold paint on top of some of the details.
- One final coat of clear coat.
