Harry Potter party – Wands

Using the tutorial from http://boxycolonial.com/diy-harry-potter-wands/, I made wands out of dowels. 

  1. Cut dowels to 12″
  2. Cover handles with hot glue.  Trial and error experience. Be generous with the glue and try different techniques. 
  3. Paint with various acrylic paints. 
  4. Once they were painted, use a watered-down gold paint on top of some of the details. 
  5. One final coat of clear coat.
