DIY Harry Potter Series – Hermione’s Wand (Blogger Request)

I wasn’t planning on making any more wands since I have enough in my stash for at least 14-15 surprise wizards / witches during Halloween. This DIY is a special request by blogger Hana Elwan from my Weasley Wand DIY post. So here goes…

Materials:

  1. A chopstick
  2. Acrylic Paints – Beige or Fawn, Metallic brass gold sharpie (medium fine)
  3. Hot Glue
  4. Pencil and brushes of medium thickness

Process:

  1. Use the hot glue to create the vine-and-leaves template on the stick (this is the image I used: Hermione’s wand template). Here’s an image of how the design looks (it’s a combination of swirls followed by leaves). Just repeat each vine pattern on the stick.
  2. Let the wand dry for 45 mins.
  3. Paint the entire wand with the beige / fawn. Use 2 coats and let dry in between for at least 30 mins.IMG_3341
  4. Use the gold pen to highlight the vine design and let dry ( you can also use a thin brush and gold paint instead of the pen).

I added the name Hermione at the bottom so I wouldn’t confuse it with my other wands. Once again, thank you Hana for giving me this idea to try out 🙂
