What You Will Need To Follow this Tutorial

  • Wood or branch
  • Saw
  • Knife

You can buy a ready-made wood, but I highly suggest you can get it into the woods. Just stroll around and look for an accessible branch. It is more personalized compared to buying one. Use the hard rod to avoid your wand easy to bend.

Step by Step Instruction in Making a Wand Out of Wood

Cut a portion of the branch tree about 12 inches long. It does not matter if it is thick or thin, it totally depends on how the girth that you want. We can just peel off the excess thickness as we go along the process.
