#HarryPotterMerch – DIY Elder Wand

DIY your very own authentic looking Elder Wand from Harry Potter using some basic easily available and affordable craft supplies.

Step 1 : Take a chopstick and use some hot glue at the bottom to build the base and make it wide. Put one layer of glue at a time and let it cool before moving on to the next one. Make sure that the temperature of the glue gun is not too high otherwise it will take very long to cool down and might even burn your fingers. It’s easier to mold the glue when it isn’t too hot.

Step 2 : Mark the 6 bumps of the elder wand on the chopstick with a pencil. The bumps are almost evenly placed and fall at a distance of 1-1.5 inches from one another.

Step 3 : To add dimension to the wand draw lines with some hot glue from the base to the first bump.

Step 4 : Use hot glue in a  circular pattern around the chopstick where the first bump is marked and stick some small beads on it to give it more detail.

Repeat the same steps with all the bumps. First draw on the circular markings with the hot glue and then stick some beads to it. The bumps will progressively get smaller as you get to the tip of the wand.

Step 5 : Once the entire chopstick is dry, paint it brown.

Step 6 : Once the brown paint dries paint certain sections of the wand black with a light hand to add to the character and make it look used.
