Whew, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy taking care of three boys since this quarantine started. Yep, you read it right. Three boys: one toddler, a 5-month-old and a big baby (the husband).
Today, I will share with you how I made the magic wand that I used for Niko’s 7th month Harry Potter theme (he just turned 2 years old this March, so this is undeniably, without a doubt, indeed, a late post.
This tutorial is super duper easy.
Hot glue gun and glue stick
Paint or spray paint
Rust-Oleum clear coat
I was planning to use a chopstick, but I didn’t have the time to look for one. So, I used my paintbrush instead.
To start, apply hot glue in a swirling motion starting from the bottom going to the top of the paint brush or chopstick, (leave around 2 inches from the top). Let it dry for a few minutes. Once the hot glue hardens, you can paint it with any color you like. I spray-painted mine with a mixture of gold and black paint. I find it easier to use the spray paint especially when transitioning to a different color.
Spray them alternately until you reach the look that you wanted.
NOTE: When you are using a spray paint, do it outside the house and use a face mask (as much as possible) because the smell is really strong and unhealthy. It could give you headache or nausea.
Leave the wand outside to dry (I left mine overnight), then spray it with Rust-Oleum to give it a finished look.0
