Hermione Granger's WandMarch 13, 2010
I've already posted instructions on a light-up wand. But for a more movie-accurate, lighter, and much easier wand, I suggest this method.
First, take a sheet of computer paper and lightly coat with Elmer's glue. Roll the paper diagonally as tightly as you can. Allow to dry.
Next, trim the ends with scissors. For wands like Hermione's, that have carved detail, use a glue gun to glue on the design.
Then, paint with acryclic paints. If you glued a design, you may or may not want to paint the design in a lighter/darker shade.
