Paintbrush (this will be the wand body)
Cereal box or posterboard
Shiny gold fabric


Cut the bristles off of the paintbrush.

Cut the piece of cardboard wide enough for a wand handle and long enough so that it will wrap around the paintbrush many times. Superglue this over the bristle end of the brush to make the handle. Allow to dry overnight.

Glue shiny gold fabric on top of the wand handle.

Final Product

Simple Magic Wand
