My nephew is grading from Uni this month...which is odd as he is 8 as I tend to think of him
. Now his brain works more like mine then any other folks in my family tree. So what to make, what to make. I finally did decided on a magic wand. If anyone needs a magic wand it's when one transitions from college folk to grown up. So I collected a few sycamore sticks from a park my sister and I learned to water ski at when I was at my folks house last and worked from there..
Here it is in the box I made for it to live in.
The box was designed to also be a display stand.
The white parts are glow in the dark FIMO, but I'm a bit worried the glaze, which is UV protective will block the glow
After I was done with it all, I noticed that adding the eye at this joint kind of made it look like a one armed cephalopod
And here is the back half of the wand. I did drill out the handle a bit and added a Garfield newsprint cartoon as the core. He was always a huge new comic fan as a kid
And clearly the end of wands are perfect for more eyes...
I had to make the box, as the wand was very long...so that's when I got the idea to do the display stand as well.
Got the box made, and it would not stay closed. Thus the ribbon and eye closure
He seemed happy with it, so that is all that matters to me
But I did feel a bit sheepish about giving my youngest nephew a stick for grad
Thanks for looking
