SO. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince party that my friends and I were planning was racing toward me...and I've always wanted all of us to have wands for the event. However...spending hours with an exacto knife and a dowel rod didn't exactly sound like my cup o' tea! So, defeated, I browsed the web looking for other options and behold! A random add on the side of my screen "Make Harry Potter wands out of Paper!".

So, 3 paper cuts and hot glue gun burns later...  


Wood: BirchCore: Dragon Heartstring

Wood: YewCore: Runespoor Fang

Wood: WillowCore: Chimaera Scale

Wood: RosewoodCore: Hippogriff Talon
(Note: I changed the stone before I gave it as a gift...it looks like a nasty toenail in this picture!)

I'll admit that they aren't fantastic... but I am working on more, practicing, hoping to make better ones.
But please, comments, critiques, it's all welcome.
Thanks for looking    Cheesy

duct tape is like the force. There's a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

Not perfect. But I think their neat. I'd probably pay $5 for one.

I'm surprised that the hot glue gave it such a cool look. It adds a lot of dimension and detail to what it otherwise a simple shape. Good Job!
