We all know how much fun it can be as a kid to pick up a stick or a pencil, pretend it’s a wand and then use our imaginations to cast spells on everyone in the vicinity. With this cool DIY craft project, your kiddos can now use an object that actually resembles a wand. Sweet, right?

Thanks to Majann, you and your kids will have a fun-filled afternoon putting together these awesome wands. (Remember: the glue is going to be super hot so wait until it cools down a tad before trying to mould it with your hands.) Your wee ones will be channelling their inner Harry Potter in no time.

What you’ll need:

  • Chopsticks
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Acrylic paint (in different shades of brown)
  • Beads of all sizes

You can find the complete set of step-by-step instructions with photos on Majann’s page, here. For more cool craft ideas like this one, check out these budget-friendly Paint Chip Bookmarks or this DIY Wall of Fame.
