We got to go to an awesome Harry Potter party! In order to be prepared to arrive as Hermione, I needed a wand. I found these instructions on Pinterest.
Roll a regular sheet of printer paper into a tube starting at one corner, put a line of glue from a glue stick diagonally down the paper and continue to roll until you have your tube.
Glue shut with hot glue.
Using hot glue and inspiration from Harry Potter, create a magic design on your wand :)
Fill in the ends with hot glue.
Paint a wood-like color
If desired, add gold accent paint to the raised parts of the wand. Husband didn't like the gold, I did. You can pick.
Go work your magic!
