This diy wizard wand is easy, quick, and made of materials you most likely already have in your craft room.

To make a Wizard Wand you will need:

  • paper
  • a dowel
  • a hot glue gun (used with supervision)
  • and paint

Assemble the wand by gluing the paper to the base of the dowel and rolling it up for your grip. Then use the glue gun to make cool vine-like markings. The last step is to paint it! We chose to mix brown and gold paint together for a mystical woodsy effect. Have fun styling your wand however you want, the WAND chooses the WIZARD, after all! 😉
