A very easy but effective way to make this! Cool idea, you can bet I'll be doing this whenever I pick up extra chopsticks!

Oh, thats so simple! I once carved myself a wand from a tree branch, but it took a long time! Happy I might just try this...;) Thanks for the how-to!

Wow, these are so cute! I once used a dowel and sculpey years ago and created Hermione's Wand. Took some doing, I must say, the intricate leaves and vines were not too hard, but I had to get them just right. (I can be a perfectionist sometimes) Now I am going to use this method to create the Deathly Hallow-The Elder Wand! Cool, why didn't I think of this sooner?

Also, I could not find a single bead, so I used bits of gravel and little pebbels. Worked well.
