The Wands From My Wizard Video

I made the wands a few months ago back when I had first received the request to do this kind of video.  I made the thicker wands (the elemental ones) out of construction paper.



First, I rolled them in cones.  Next, I glued the cones shut with Elmer's glue.  I then stuffed the cones as tightly as I could with newspaper, and sealed them with hot glue plugs.







I painted the cones the desired color, and let them dry.  I then took the hot glue again, and made designs on them.  After the glue had set, I used nail polish to paint the glue streaks.  After the nail polish had dried, I applied Mod Podge to the whole length.  On the blue "wand," I wrapped cray paper around and then Mod Podged the hell out of it until it was completely saturated.  That one took the longest to dry.  



I adorned them with glass gems (you can get at any craft shop). 

The "Extravagant Feather Line" wands were made out of standard wooden chopsticks.  I painted them, and then hot glued glass gems up 2/3 of the way. 

 

The "Division 5" wands were also wooden chopsticks.

 

I painted them, and let them dry.  I then took the hot glue gun and made the desired designs.  When the glue is still warm, you can squish it in your hands and give it that melty molded look.

 Or you can do the glue in layers and create depth.  After the glue dried, I painted it with nail polish.  




IMHO, the chopstick wands were much easier to make and appeared more "wand like."

  3. I loved them all, but I kind thought the plainer "level threes" should have been "level two" and vice versa, just cuz the level twos were so pretty. The whole video was amazing as usual though! :)
