Wands - tutorial by majann Wands - tutorial by majann
A long promised Wand-tutorial.
I'm REALLY sorry it has taken me so long, but here it is!
I hope you'll try it out, and make your own wands!

We (:iconmajann: & :iconsigrunelise:) used about one hour, making eight wands this evening, including the time the glue got cold, and the paint dried completely.

ENJOY - and please do share with me, if you make your own - I'd love to se your wands! :heart:

Wands - tutorial by *majann is a very clever, very inexpensive way of creating a great prop for all those budding wizards and witches! ( Suggested by FreakieGeekie and Featured by Elandria )
I absolutely love this tutorial and I cannot wait to try it. A tutorial with hundreds of steps and pieces loses my interest very quickly, but this is simple and elegant.
It's cheap to do with all kinds of outcomes to keep it interesting. The directions are clear and the photographs are great. The example wands you created are beautiful and a wonderful motivator.
This idea is very fresh and surprising to find here on Deviant Art. I'd love to see more work from you. I'm seriously just heading out to the Asian Market near here right now because I'm so excited to give this a try.
Keep up the awesome work and thank you for sharing this.

First of all, you took GREAT pictures. I have a real hard time with photo tutorials because usually the artisan is great at making the product, but the pictures and guides for you to make your own are lacking in really showing you anything. I also really loved that you had eight different wand designs that you did yourself, for me that served as great inspiration as to what I'm going to do with my own wand! Love the simplicity of the project and how it's both low on cost and time, but has an EXCELLENT end result! Great job on both coming up with the craft and explaining it to us! =)

Ive found wood putty is a better alternative to hot glue. you can shape it easier, with your fingers, and once it drys completely you can sand and work it as if it was actual wood. Plus paint designed for wood, and stains, works well on it .

Hi! I LOVE the tutorial, but when i used my hot glue gun, i had only 4 seconds to mold it :( Do you have any suggestions on how to get it like the ninth picture? They were really good!

This was excellent!! I did this with my kids and they LOVED them. We actually let some of the bead on top show on some of them and it looked cool. We also used crackle paint on them and that turned out cool too! 

Thanks for this tutorial!!

I saw this in a "do it yourself" website somewhere.
And now I've found the one who've created it! Very nice.

I have 2 wands almost finished, but I need more practice.

Thank you for the tutorial!
