I made matching wands for the daughter's dance class. Their costumes were bright green with boas. I took the cardboard portion of a wire hanger and hot glued a little fur to the top. They loved it!

Here is an easy wand to make for a Halloween costume.
Take your cardboard and cut out 2 identical star shapes for your wand. Take your piece of dowel and using a strong wood or craft glue, adhere your two star shapes together and place your piece of dowel in-between the two shapes. Now, paint your wand and wand handle using a spray or acrylic paint. Gold looks great and pink is very pretty.
Once dry, coat your stars using craft glue or wood glue, then sprinkle glitter onto the glue and shake off any excess.
Allow it to dry, then give it an optional coat of spray varnish to help adhere the glitter.
My niece wanted a magic wand after watching some Harry Potter movies. I found an old drum stick at a yard sale and painted it in colors that she likes and added glitter. She really likes it.
