Wands by majann Wands by majann
Me and a friend planned and arranged a Harry Potter - Party, a tribute to the new movie kind of. At first, the plan was to arrange a marathon-nigt, to watch all the other movies to "warm up" to the new one - it ended up a major costume party, where all of our friends got assign their own role and everyoune had to dress up in costumes.
We watched the movies troughout the week, as we got everything ready, and then we saw OotP at the party-night.

Me, :iconhendoria: and :iconsigrunelise:, made these wands. We gave every guest his own special wand as they arrived, and it was a BIG success!! ;D
They are made out of chopsticks and hot glue...easy, and very effectful! Aren't they cool?

Tutorial (finally!!) here:

The textures are amazing! I really liked how you gave each wand its own look (the broken one is a riot). Not only are they all different but once could really believe those were actual movie props from the movie. I can see the detail of each piece that you used to give the wands their own look but with the paint you can not tell they are anything but wands. I would love to see more tutorial from you with regards to your crafting (if you have any) since it is obvious that you are very creative.

I think you should change your handle to Ollivander!
What do you think?

I heard that Daniel Radcliffe went through at least 80 wands during the filming of all movies

These wands are beautiful. Checkout some of mine on my page. I take branches from trees near our house and make them into wands. I do like one a month though.

I used your tutorial to make some wands for my kids and they freaked out! I used wooden dowels and some fake plastic skulls for their (all Slytherins at heart). I am sure the "oh could your mom make me one(s)" will come rolling in soon. Thanks for the info it was very cool!

there is a tutorial here:[link]
they're both cheap and easy to make
- you should give it a try yourself
- much more inexpencive than for me
to make one and send it to you ;)

no need to be jealous...they're real easy to make! :)
- the only reason we made so many, was that we needed
thirty for our party-guests! :)

And yes...having about thirty friends willing to attend
to a HP-party, "forced" to dress up as a given character
- well...that's a thing to be jealous of! :D

Have to love them! :heart:

I will :D My friends and I are going to have a Harry Potter Movie Marathon in preparation for HPDH I think we will make them there. What kind of paint did you use exactly? is it wood stain?
Reply
:iconmajann:
majann Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
we used regular acrylic paint...the one you use on canvas...
- and it was really inexpencive as well!

Oh, have fun on the marathon! That was exactly what we did
when the last movie came out! *lots of fun* :D

Wow, at first I thought you did a really good job with turning.

But when I read your description I thought: How easy!

Thanks for sharing, they look really awesome and it was a very good idea indeed! I would consider myself lucky to be one of your friends :)

:D very easy, yet VERY effectful!

...we had to make a lot of them, as we handed out wands for everyone as they arrived, and all together 27 witches and wizards, needed a wand (plus some extras just in case), so it had to be something simple - it turned out even better than expected! :)

Thank you for that last one - warms my heart! :hug:

we made about 40 in total, I think..

We didn't make them exactly like the ones in the movie, because "better different, than the real thing with flaws" right? :) I think Draco got one of the light ones...
