I made this assortment of magic wands as party gifts for my son’s Harry Potter themed 6th birthday party. They are made of a variety of wood: maple, padauk, redheart, purpleheart, pine, and some are branches that I had laying around. You can see that the some were embelished with gems (from Hobby Lobby, this is not Hogwarts!). Others were wood burned with designs. Most were turned on my lathe, some were carved. It was a lot of work but I had fun making them and they were a big hit!

I’d say you added some real magic to the affair.
What variety! What colours and style! You the dad!

WOW! How FUN is that! I bet you son’s party was a big hit and will be the talk of the town for a long time!

Thanks guys, we let the kids pick their own but the parents were just as into the choice as the kids! It was nice to feel like the work was appreciated. One parent said they could not wait to see what was in store for next year, now I am wondering what I got myself into!

Wow, I’m in process of doing the exact same thing besides it being my son’s 7th bday party. So far I’ve got three down!

Well done. I just finished up two and I wouldn’t imagine doing a box full! Very dedicated dad.

Keep at it hodgepodge:)

That’s a lot of cool and pretty wands! Son and guests must be really happy and had lots of fun in the party having those as giveaways. Great work!

Very nice, I like the handle/wand combos.
