Bibbity Bobbity Boo, a Wand How-to

So my evil spawn aka the daughter has a birthday coming up. She’s married, has children, works and has a house to maintain. I could get her something practical that could help lighten the load but where’s the fun in that. I making her two fun gifts. A Wand and a Witches Grimore.

Today I made the wand. My oak tree looses limbs during every storm. I pulled off a good size stick from one of the fallen to become the magical instrument. The wand I made was super long, normally wand size is determined by the length from your elbow to wrist.

I used sanding fabric to smooth out most of the lumps and remove the rougher bark.

You can leave the wand natural but I chose to paint it using a metallic craft paint. I just dipped my finger in the paint and rubbed it all over the stick. I didn’t have a paint brush.

Paint is optional.

Once the paint dried I used a little tack glue along with jewelry wrapping wire to attach a selenite wand to the handle end. This will help with getting a good grip during those magic duels.

I wrapped a piece of amber further up the wand where the wand had some rough bumps. I used a thick grey thread to attach an amethyst point not far from the amber.

I also used the thread and tack glue to attach another piece of amber for the wand tip. I took a knife and cut a small notch around just below the wand tip to give the thread something to grab onto.

I had several charms I added to the tip also. I just tied them on below the amber.

Last I got out my trusty side kick, the wood burning tool. I burnt into different areas on the wand rune symbols. Research whatever symbols you use. You don’t want to accidentally summon a demon. That would be rude, imagine you’re demon going about your business doing demony things when blam! You’re in a bedroom of some crafter who is wearing pajamas, hair not brushed.

When summoning a demon one should dress up! If you don’t take it seriously how do you expect the demon to?

You can draw the symbols on the wand then burn them into the wood or live life dangerously like me and just free hand burn the symbols.
