Now that you have learned how to make your own version of “floating candlesticks”, it’s time to learn how to make wooden “wands”. After this, you will be ready to host your own Harry Potter party! OR, prepare for Halloween in March! OR make wands JUST FOR FUN!
Supplies needed: wooden chop sticks, hot glue gun, 2-3 shades of brown paint, and gold paint.
Step 1 is to create squiggles and lines with hot glue on the thick side of wooden chop sticks. Be sure to make each one unique. Let the glue cool.
Step 2 is to paint each “wand” brown. I used 3 different shades of brown, so each wand was unique. After the 1st coat of brown paint dries, create paint marks (using darker or lighter brown).
Step 3 add gold paint marks as highlights. Each layer of markings makes the “wands” look like stained wood.
