The Hollywood Reporter has released a list of 25 interesting facts about the props and sets used to make the Harry Potter films. Some facts include:

1.Daniel Radcliffe wore out  60-70 wands during the making of the Harry Potter films.
2. Every wand that you see in any of the Harry Potter films is created on-site. No two wands are alike…not even the Weasley twins’!
3. Wands are 13-15 inch long and haven’t changed in length, so the actors have had to grow into them over the years. 
4. Dumbledore’s wand was a very elaborate design, even though its significance of being the Elder Wand was far from being known when made.
