Primitive Halloween Witch Wands
I collect a lot of junk that I think I will eventually use for new projects, but until I sorted, organized and packed for our move I never really realized how much of any one thing I had
hoarded collected. Spindles and dowels are just one of the collections I am referring to.
Even though I have made things with them before, I have never gathered enough of them together to make several of anything. Well, knowing just how many of them I have has changed that. Since I don’t want to purge them, creating with them is the next best option. My prim witch wands were born.
I used chair spindles of similar size and shape for the wands. I didn’t get a before pic, but they were all gray and weathered. I cleaned them up and gave them a coat of white paint. I was leaning toward a primitive design from the start so dry brushing the white paint was quick and made me happy.
Continuing along the same quick and dirty path, I free-handed black and orange stripes around the spindles.
A simple cat head topped the wands. I love the way they turned out. I hope you do too.
