Virtual Refrigerator-- Harry Potter Wands

Thanks for stopping by and joining us again this week as we host another virtual refrigerator arts and crafts link up.

Evan had a friend over to play when the local schools had a day off for Columbus day and they decided they wanted to try making Harry Potter wands.  Evan and I had done this in the past and we were real pleased with our results.

They headed off to find sticks and then used our glue guns to add texture and dimension to the handles.  Then they began painting them.

Their finished wands were set aside to dry.

Evan's wand was made using silver, green and yellow paint and he put glue all the way up the whole thing

This wand was made using silver paint, maroon paint and lots and lots of fine glitter

This wand was only painted where the glue was placed and a nice amber color was mixed up

It was a miserable and rather dark day so my pictures didn't come out that well... but I just could not ignore a craft project that they imitated!!

Now without further ado I invite you to grab a "magnet" and link up your arts and crafts posts below and visit some other bloggers to see what they shared on their refrigerators.

Your art project doesn't need to be a stand alone post, nor does it need to be a tutorial.  We love day in the life posts or homeschooling wrap- ups that show art work too! 

So what do you have to share with us?

  1. Nice job!! Love it when they come up with their own ideas for artistic projects!

    1. Me too; at least I know they're interested that way.

  2. Love it! I think all my kids would enjoy this! You always have the coolest projects! :)
