Harry Potter Makeup Wand Tutorial!

Hey there Lovelies!
So today I wanted to post a fun tutorial that I thought you all would enjoy! So here it is the Harry Potter Makeup wand Tutorial!

Things you will need:

Makeup Brushes
LOTS of Hot glue and a hot glue gun
Paint sponge and brushes
Sealing coat

Step 1. Bead and Glue

Choose a bead that is slightly bigger than the end of the brush. 
Glue it to the end and once dry glue around the bead and brush to keep it in place.

Step 2. Start Designing 

Now you get started designing!
I like to do a bunch of vines or swirls on mine!
Here's a few examples of some designs I did.
After I did the main design (swirls and such) I filled in the bare spaces by just placing a dot of glue on the spot and then taking the end of the glue gun and dragging it all over to give it that wood texture!

Here's a close up of one of my textured wands with the vines.

3. Paint your base wood color.
(I forgot to take a picture at this point D: )
When your painting hot glue it will need a couple of coats, so paint your first coat and chill out and watch some Netflix or something while you wait for it to dry.
I started a little HP marathon of course :D

4. Add some detail.

After I decided I had enough layers for the base I moved on to adding detail. I took a darker brown color, and ran that over top of the ridges very very lightly. I actually didn't use a paint sponge or brush for this. I either used my finger with a very, VERY light amount or I used a skewer that I had cut a slant into so it lied flat against the ridges.   

5. Seal it
Now in the picture I had an Outdoor Glossy sealer by Krylon . I do however prefer to do this with a matte sealer, the glossy one was just what I had at the time. 

Step 6. Your done!

Now that your done you have these adorable little makeup brushes that are totally Harry Potter, Go do something crazy with your face! Transform yourself into one of your favorite wizards! Or just go brag to all your friends on how you have the coolest makeup brushes in town. ;D
