So I’ve been making a bunch of Harry Potter or just generally magical styled wands over the last few months. These are just a few of them. might post the others in batches over the next few weeks.

Wands are made from wood, glue, sometimes wire and paper and beads, paint, more glue, varnish and sometimes other things. Wand boxes are hand made from 300gsm card and some are personalized.
