How To Make a Harry Potter Wand

Last year my podcast Universe Box did an episode about Harry Potter.

We even gained national attention when J.K. Rowling herself responded to a tweet from one of our listeners. You can read about it on CNN, Buzzfeed, E! Online, or pretty much any news outlet.

How To Make a Harry Potter Wand

 

Homemade Wands

One of my main tasks for that podcast was to make a tutorial on how to make your own Harry Potty wand from things you probably had around the house. It is quick, simple, and magical. Give it a watch!

Wand Supplies Needed

  • Sticks (like from an old game of pick up sticks) or CLEAN chopsticks
  • Hot glue gun with extra glue
  • Brown, gold and/or silver paint and a paintbrush

That’s it!

I had so much fun making these Harry Potter wands and my kids had a blast playing with them. They walk around my house yelling “Universe Boxio!” all the time with them.

Are you a Potterhead? Have you ever made your own wand? Or did you get yours the old fashioned way by going to Ollivanders?
