Multi-colour wand made with air-dry clay #ElectronicHalloween

FXG0LA5I55TUPW9 MEDIUM

This wand tutorial from mostlyglue would make Garrick Ollivander proud.

Being Harry Potter fans, my kids wanted to have some wands of their own to play with.

There are some fantastic instructables for Harry Potter inspired wands on this site – some that light up and others that are intricately carved out of wood. But given my propensity for accidents using sharp knives, I thought wood carving was out of the question – I wanted to keep my fingers intact! Also, the kids requested a number of different wands in various styles. So, air-dry modeling clay seemed to be a good choice – it’s pretty inexpensive, easy to use and shape.

Super into this project? Vote for it in the Instructables Halloween 2015 Props Contest (prizes provided by Adafruit!)!
