Today I'm sharing a witch's wand that I've made for a swap; the tags I've shown over the previous two days are some of the extras I'm putting in :o)
For the swap we were supposed to alter a toy fairy wand but I didn't have one to hand so I looked around for something else I could use instead. I came across one of my old paintbrushes that I hadn't cleaned properly (oops) and the bristles were really hard, so not much use as a paintbrush anymore. I decided to paint it black and then work from there.
The next step was to wrap it in an organza ribbon that had silver cobwebs and spiders on it.
For the end of the wand I attached a black beaded tassel and added a couple of metal charms and a skull bead into it; I also added a square cork pad on the flat bit where the bristles are, painted it black and secured a bit of black card on top which I had stamped with a five pointed star.
