Who Made These DIY Harry Potter Wands

I have one of the most amazing friends who lives in the USA. Her name is Elizabeth and she is such a fantastic example to me. Elizabeth is a great Mother and a wonderful friend and as well as a huge Harry Potter fan. In fact I’ve seen plenty of photos of my friends dressed up in their Harry Potter costumes and they look so awesome.

Elizabeth has two wonderful and fantastic daughters. They are always doing fun and wonderful things and I really love to keep up with the things they do.

Elizabeth’s family are huge Harry Potter fans and when they came to the UK, they went to London to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. The whole family dressed in Harry Potter robes and toured the Studios. It was a fantastic experience they will never forget.

Since returning to the USA, I have watched the fun things my friend and her daughters do. For Valentines Elizabeth and her eldest Mary Ann, made Harry Potter wands for all her Muggle classmates. I think they are awesome and simply had to share.

Now making a DIY Harry Potter Wand can be super fun. You can try out this fun Harry Potter Craft using the instructions below or might like to visit a Harry Potter DIY youtube tutorial.

I am hoping in the future to take my daughter to The Harry Potter Studios. I would love to visit Platform 3 1/4. That would be awesome. Maybe we could make some Harry Potter Crafts before we visit the Studios to get my daughter super excited.

  1. Thanks so much for this article. Making a “Harry Potter Wand” is a great idea for an activity to do with my neice and nephew. They are both huge fans and I am sure they would enjoy doing this with their Auntie Nic.

  2. What a neat Valentines gift. I’m sure the kids thought she was the bomb I’m laughing because the teachers were probably not so excited about everyone swinging their wands around all day.

  3. Wow, I didn’t notice that it’s made of paper and glue. I thought these were made of brass. Those would be wonderful souvenir items/gift for their friends from their trip.
