I used this tutorial to make a bunch of wands using a sheet of paper, a glue gun, and paint. http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-awesome-Harry-Potter-wand-from-a-sheet-of-/ Since my swap partner has received her package, I can now post pictures.



In progress pictures:

I used painter's tape to hold the paper together while the glue dried.


After getting decorated with a hot glue gun & a base coat of white paint:


More finished pictures:




I used a gold paint pen to do the accents & sealed them all with decoupage.

I saw the instructable on these as well, and want to give them a shot myself.  I like how your's turned out much better than the instructables!  You mentioned you used glue to hold the paper into a tube.  I remember reading double sided tape in the instructable.  Did you happen to try them both, or was glue just simpler?

I didn't have any double-sided tape, so I just used glue.
