You're an independent witch that don't need no Ollivander.

Whether you're throwing a child's birthday party, an adult's birthday party, or just having a typical night in, you're going to need some wands.  Rather than being born into a life of witchcraft and wizardry, traveling to England, finding someone that knows the entrance to Diagon Alley, making your way to Ollivander's, and having the wand choose you, take matters into your own hands and just make one.  

What you'll need:


Chinese food

Hot glue gun

Glue sticks for said hot glue gun

Acrylic paint


What to do:

Once your hot glue gun has had time to heat up, take one of your chopsticks and start squeezing the hot glue around the end of it. We recommend spinning the chopstick slowly as you squeeze out the glue as it will keep the glue from dripping.  

You can encircle the last few inches of the chopstick if you want a wand with a handle, or you can do any number of designs with the glue along the chopstick should you feel so inspired.  

Once the glue starts to cool a bit, it becomes semi-malleable so you can work with its shape to your liking. After the glue has fully dried (which doesn't take more than a minute or two), you are ready to paint!  


Use browns and maroons with some gold accents if you want something more earthy. Use pinks and purples and glitters if you're a princess witch. Wait for a full moon if you're patient and think it might help. While you wait for the paint to dry, use your leftover chopsticks to eat some lo mein and ponder the ways in which you might incorporate your wand into your everyday life (hint: there are literally a million ways). 



Once the paint has dried, make some magic duh.
