American Girl Harry Potter Wands


American Girl Harry Potter Wands

Calling all Harry Potter fans!  Well, I guess you don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to need a wand.  Your doll could just like magic tricks!  Whatever the case, these American Girl wands are just too cute!  I’ve seen a similar technique used for human size wands for dress up and Halloween, so I made a few changes, added my own touch, and voila!  Doll size!  You might notice that these are bright and fun wands.  If you are making these for a Harry Potter scene, you might want to use darker colors, closer to the real ones.  However, ours are just for fun so we choose loud color combos.

Materials Needed:

  1. Hot Glue & Extra Sticks
  2. Extra Small Wooden Dowels
  3. Buttons, Beads, Small Wooden Craft Objects
  4. Craft Paint


  • You might be able to use colored hot glue!  I didn’t have any on hand so I just painted mine, but I would love to know if that makes a difference!
  • You could possibly use skewers instead of dowels, but they might end up being a little skinny for scale.
  • Seriously get creative for the end pieces! Sponges, acorn, anything will work and be fun!  We even used a crayon sharpener!

    Maybe. But its still really small and might be hard to decorate.

      I think toothpicks will be to small. Toothpicks are more Barbie size.
