Craftster means to me making things for others.

A brother of a friend has had cancer hit for the second time.  His friends and family were having a giant fundraiser sale.  I wasn't going to be home the weekend it was going on, but still wanted to help out.  I made these 20 wands for them to sell at the fundraiser.



These wands are awesome and cheap, they just take a lot of time to do.  They are made from rolled paper glued down, then hot glue placed over top in patterns.  Just paint them up afterwards and you've got it!

Painted gold edges


Here they are all packaged up in their Olivander's tin.  Hope they sold well!


Happy Anniversary Craftster!

How long are they?

They're the length like you'd see in the Harry Potter movies.  Like 12 inches or so.
Thanks!
