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.
