Even if they share a twin core, each wizard’s wand is unique. You can make your own wand following the tutorial in Harry Potter Wand DIY Part 1, but I ended up making so many that it was simply too much to put into one post. Each wand deserves a unique story, so here is part 2 with my remaining wands!
Alyce’s Wand Shoppe
Ainsley is made from Maple and Unicorn tail-hair, 11 1/4 inches. Often held by high achievers, this wand is drawn to fresh challenges and international travel, and when properly paired with a wizard who loves learning and challenge, this wand creates consistently brilliant magic.
I made Ainsley using a 3/16 inch dowel, wooden beads (step 4 from tutorial) and a swirling strand of hot glue. The handle is black, has a tan shaft, and gold accents.
Eleanora is an especially emotional wand made of Hazel and Unicorn tail-hair, 9 3/4 inches. It is also quite unique in that this wand will always only have one owner. Hazel is an emotionally charged wood that produces outstanding magic in the hands of the skillful, but is capable of emitting random magic if the user has recently lost their temper or suffered a disappointment. Fiercely loyal, Hazel paired with the loyalty of unicorn tail hair creates such a bond with their owner that they will “wilt” and die once their owner passes away.
Eleanora was created with a 3/16 inch dowel, and hot glue accents, and an elaborate bead glued to the end of the handle for decoration. The based was painted with a dark brown and metallic gold was used for accents.
Dietrich is made from Hornbeam and Hippogriff feather, 10 1/4 inches. This wand selects a wizard who has intense passion, bordering on obsession. Once chosen, these wands bond so quickly and intelligently to their owner that other wizards find them difficult to work with, especially if their honor code differs significantly from the original owner. Enemies (or offenders) of owners of this wand will find the wand completely useless, or even have the spells cast back on themselves as a defensive measure.
I constructed Dietrich from a 3/16 dowel, wooden beads, and a decorative bead glued to the end of the handle. The shaft is dark brown, with black and gold accents.
Patronus is an introvert’s wand. Made of Apple and Phoenix Feather, 11 1/2 inches long, this wand is exceptionally unique and powerfully suited to an owner of high aims and ideals. While owners of this wand are well loved by those around them, the pairing with a Phoenix Feather lends them to be more distant and detached, selecting a few close friends and family to be in their inner circle and being fiercely devoted to them. In such, the wand is just as selective when choosing its wizard, but is an incredibly powerful wand when properly paired.
Patronus was made using a 3/16 inch dowel, hot glue for decoration, and has a silver base with metallic gold accents.
Hawthorne is aptly named for the powerful and dangerous wood it is constructed with. Hawthorne and Dragon Heart-string, 10 1/2 inches, this wand is capable of incredibly powerful magic, especially with healing spells, or conversely, curses. Paired with dragon heartstring, this wand is often held by those with a conflicted nature. This makes it a powerful tool, as the wand may adjust the magic to the owners true intentions, whether or not they are fully aware of what those intentions are, for better or for worse.
Hawthorne is made with a 1/4 inch dowel, hot glue decoration, and painted with a black handle, dark brown shaft and dark metallic accents.
