About This Class

When my niece and her friend decided to have a joint birthday party, they wanted the theme to be "Harry Potter." So being the obsessive-compulsive that I am, I went all out with the party favors and activities. I am a graphic designer, so I designed the invitations as well as various props for the party. We had a scavenger hunt based on the Horcruxes, a potion mixing competition, and a shopping spree on Diagon Alley. The party favors were a big hit. Each child got his/her very own wand, each individually handcrafted and unique. In this course, I will teach you to make four different styles of wands. It's really simple, and anybody can do it. You can even get a little creative and come up with your own designs.

I never thought of making these, but I know my granddaughter will love them. You make it look easy so I think I'll give it a try.
