  • How to make a wand. Harry Potter Wand - Step 1
    Step 1

    Step 1:

    To start off you will need a stick you found on the ground. It will need to be big enough, so that when you start to shave the bark off it does not become a twig.
    Remember: you can always cut it down later if it is to big

    Step 2

    Step 2:

    This is the hard part. using your exacto knife shave off the bark until you hit the soft wood underneath. Shave off as much wood/bark as you want.

    Remember: when using an exacto knife be extremely careful, and always point the knife away from your self. Always close the exacto knife when you are done using.

    Step 3

    Step 3:

    Start to shape the stick, by making a point at the top, or little grooves within. I made grooves that will fit my thumb while i hold the wand.

    Remember: don't make the stick to thin or else it could break while in use!

    Step 4:

    TIME TO PAINT! using the paint color of choice put a little onto your wand. Using the small piece of cloth, or a paper towel rub it into the wood. A little bit of pain can go a long way! This makes the wand look older and also gives it a more stain finish

    If your stick is to long, wait for the pain to dry then take a hand saw and saw to the choice of length
