Nothing could be more fun than absolutely geeking out with my love. A few weeks ago, Mister and I were sitting at the kitchen table with a little more than a pound of oven bake clay before us waiting to be formed into nifty creations. It was Mister who had the idea first – in honor of our geeky obsession with Harry Potter, we were going to craft some wands!
Mister ended up crafting two wands, the one with the serpent wrapped around the top and the claw holding the orb. He also made that adorable little rose for me. Mine of course was decorated with mushrooms and a vine wrapping around it.
As soon as they finished baking, we set to painting them. I liked a darker wood color to set off the very nature-like decorations atop my wand.
Mister opted for lighter wood tones, and I especially like the way his claw wand turned out.
Once the paint had dried, we were casting spells all around the kitchen (of course we followed the proper directions for a duel…and only a few Unforgivable Curses were cast). It was a giddy fun time being dorks, but the fun didn’t end there. We also created a few other clay creations.
