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

Those are paper! Wow that's awesome!

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!

Visit my etsy please! I'd love to have feedback from other crafters!
