It's no secret that I am adore the Harry Potter series, remember my library bag? I have read/listened/watched the series more times than I would care to admit. I love the story, the magic, the wonder, the struggles, the, well, everything.
And let's not forget the tattoo I have...
When I decided to do crafting with wood this month, I knew I needed to make myself a wand...super ridic right? You muggles just don't understand.
I didn't want just any old wand, I mean I couldn't actually go around town carrying a wand in my hand without getting a million questions about it...so instead, I went with a charm wand, one that I could simply wear around my neck. I went out into my front yard and found a cute little stick, maybe made out of an elder tree, who knows, and did a little carving.
Then I grabbed this distress ink and stained it.
Also staining my finger in the process...all in the name of magic.
While the wand was drying, I cut out three triangles from paper on my Silhouette, and like I did in the past with my The Fault in our Stars best friend necklaces, I glued them all together so they were a little heartier. I did not use any Mod Podge on this one though, I wanted it to be very plain and simple. And for the circle, I went through my jewelry making stuff to find a silver hoop earring. I just twisted the top a little so it would act as a charm instead of an earring.
I screwed in an eye screw to the top of the wand so it could be used as a charm. Lastly, I strung them up together in the order of the Deathly Hallows; Triangle for the invisibility cloak, circle for the Resurrection stone and the stick for the Elder Wand.
