Macabre Monday-You WOOD do that!

I honestly didn't think I'd make this challenge, the Minions at HDH really challenged us, but I surprised myself.  The Boy wants to be Voldemort(if you don't know who that is-where have you been?)for Hallowe'en, so I decided to make him a wand.

The Hubs found a cool stick while gardening that he thought would make a good wand.  So I sanded it down and stained it with some danish oil.

To make my handle I took some twine and wrapped around the base and sealed it with floral tape.  I then took a string of beads and hot glued them in a spiral.  Let it all dry, then painted it black.
Pretty cool, isn't it?  The beads shine through on some spots and it has a cool iridescent glow.  I decided to give it a whirl on my dog and see if it worked.

Nope.  Still a dog.  After all, the wand chooses the wizard, and this isn't my wand.  I'm lucky I didn't set my damn house on fire.


  1. Well, look who's a fancy pants crafter, and wand maker extraordinaire!
    Very clever and fun project. Ol' Volde will be very pleased....
