Easy To Make Hermione Wand

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen14 Comments

This year our family went ALL out for Halloween. Usually I tell my kids to go scrounge around in each other’s closets and figure something out, but not this year! My husband Jen’s Guy and I helped our kids to pull together four pretty awesome costumes. Pictures will be coming to a blog post near you soon. We are fairly proud of ourselves, and one point of pride is a pretty magical Hermione wand that you are never going to guess what we made it from! Here’s my lovely Rebekah to model it. This girl has style.

Are you ready to see what this wand was made from, because it surely was some magic at work!

Here’s what we used! My husband Jen’s Guy is a computer consultant, and our garage usually houses a variety of interesting and curious computer components. Like this antenna for an old broken modem that I found last week, and with the help of two little magical girls, realized it might be able to become something much more exciting!

Can you believe it?!

Our first step to transition this old antenna into my daughter’s personal wand was to gather the materials.

First, we applied one coat of  brown spray paint to both sides of the wand. Making sure to let it dry completely in-between each coat.

The next step was where the real magic took place, with the application of a little metallic gold paint!

Rebekah decided she wanted her own gold design on the “wand” and didn’t want to use any of the real Harry Potter character’s wand types. I think she wanted her wand to “pick” her, and she did a fantastic job!

  1. Kevin and I dressed up as Harry and Hermoine years back before we had the girls here. Wish I would have known this easy trick to make a wand for that costume back then. But I am pinning if we ever do Harry Potter themed again here still. Thanks so much for sharing :)

  2. You are such good parents. So involved with your kids. Awesome. I love the outfit. They mean so much more when you put them together yourself rather than buy at the store.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Jen. ♥

  3. An antenna! Who knew? You know we love all things HP here. My kids have made wands at play dates and they’re also cool. Resin or something. Papier mache? I don’t even know.
    This one is best.

  4. That looks awesome! We’ve made a few over the years but never thought of using an old antenna.

  5. Hi Jen, that is such a clever way to recycle an old antenna, I would never have guessed had you not said. I hope Rebekah casts a few spells tonight.
