Calling all crafters! For those who enjoy making their own Harry Potter crafts, we have a fun new feature just for you! Starting this May 1st, Leaky's own Crafty Witches will host a special Craft-Along event where we invite you to join us as we all make our own wands. These wands are easy and fun to make, and you can follow along at home with us by using the instructions found in this Simple Wand tutorial from Jessi, or add your own bit of magical flourish with additional hints as seen in this guide from Mayven.

We now have a special section of our forum for this and future Craft-Along events in our Leaky Lounge, where a new craft-along event will take place every two months. In order to prepare and create your own magical wand for this first event, you will need the following supplies:

  • Wooden dowel rod, any length
  • Acrylic paint
  • Varnish
  • Modeling clay
  • If you wish to add some color, you will also need:

  • Food coloring in red, yellow and blue
  • Wand for staining
  • Q-tips cotton swabs
  • Cloth-like paper towels
  • You can see many more fun Harry Potter- themed crafts, as well as tutorials on how to make these fun items here in our Crafts section, as well as the regular ongoing craft section of our forum. So crafty wands at the ready everyone, and we will see you on May 1st. Enjoy!
