Magic Wands

3 May

IMG_0858 IMG_0859Here we have 5 magic wands. We made these from Amy Karol’s workshop on Creative Bug. It took 3 weeks, or something crazy, to complete. A week of gathering materials, on my part. A day of making the newspaper wand form, with magical incantations included. Roughly soon after, we did the fun part of papier mach√© gluing which went fairly well, as we did it outside. The 3 year-old boy we watch was so busy collecting bugs, I made his wand form for him. It was probably a week later that we painted the wands. Sue and I covered them with a Mod Podge finish later that night. We were on vacation for a week, and when we got back, we finally finished the wands with jewels, feathers, and ribbons.¬† The kids were great about doing the project in parts. They didn’t lose interest, or bug me about finishing them up. From left to right here, we have the All-Purpose Magic Wand, the Non-Whapping Wand (for the 17-month old boy), the Super Sweet wand (yes, that would be my mom wand), the Frozen Wand, and the Cinderella Wand. Time to start making some magic!
