You might remember the wand I included in my Harry Potter Swap Box, which I posted last week. After making one however, I decided the process and result was too awesome not to try again, so I made myself a whole box full. Here are the fruits of my labor:
After making this selection of wands, I presented them to my siblings and had them each find the wand that suited them. Much like in Harry Potter, though some of my sibling picked up several of the wands, only one “felt right” for them.
“Curious indeed how these things happen. The wand chooses the wizard, remember….”

I did the same. We then amused ourselves by running about the house shouting spells at each other.
Here are our wands:
I have a fair few left over, waiting for their owners. Perhaps I didn’t need to make quite so many, but I had so much fun doing it!
Perhaps I should start my own wand shop…or continue making them for fun. I do have quite a few Harry Potter fan friends…
What do you think?
