Make your own wizard wand!
Make a wizard wand...for video (slide show) version, go to ThePotterPals channel on Youtube.com
Glue the wooden ball to one end of the dowel. Make sure it will not fall off.
Paint the wand any way you want.
Let the wand dry.
Cut a long piece of string.
Find the center of the string you just cut and glue it to the wand near the ball.
Wind the string around the wand handle criss-crossing the strings as you go.
When you reach the end of the handle, tie the string in a knot.
Glue the knot to the wand, and you are done!
