The Pinstrosity Blog is hosting a challenge, to celebrate their first anniversary. From January 19 through February 19, we're encouraged to make and post Pinterest projects, whether they are Wins or Fails. There are some prizes available for winners, and you can enter as many as you want.
Here's a Pinterest project for wands using chopsticks and hot glue. The instructions mentioned using beads stuck in the glue, and then when the glue was cool and dry, paint over all of it for texture. I just couldn't bring myself to paint over the beads. This is what the wands looked like prior to painting. I also decided to put some fluorite crystal points on the tops. You basically just dribble hot glue all over the top of the chopstick and when it cools down a little bit, you can shape it a little bit with your hands.
Here are the wands after the paint was dry. I admit, I'm pretty impressed with how fast and easy they were to make, even using my nemesis: hot glue.
I'll have to get more chopsticks because I have so many ideas!
