11 Of The Best Harry Potter Wands To Buy, And 6 You Can DIY

In Harry Potter, they say the wand chooses the wizard (or witch). And at Ollivander’s wand shop, that’s certainly true. But not all of us can make it to Diagon Alley to buy our own Harry Potter wands.

Luckily, the magic world has caught up to the internet so you can shop for (or create) your very own magical wands from the comfort of your home.

Whether you’re looking for an everyday wand or planning a costume for a convention or Halloween, this list of the best wands inspired by Harry Potter is sure to point you in the right direction. We’ve got 11 to buy (at 11 inches each, err, mostly) and 6 you can make yourself at home.

Harry-Potter Inspired Wands

Of course, there’s far more than wands patterned after the ones wielded by Hermione Granger or Harry. These wands instead are inspired by the world created in the books or Warner Bros’ Harry Potter films.

For example, this Deathly Hallows Wand by Deep Woods Wand Shop features the Deathly Hallows symbol—a nod to the Deathly Hallows without all the pesky rivalry and destruction that comes with The Elder Wand itself.

This quartz-tipped wand by Feythcrafts is just so beautiful that I had to include it. It may not be a straight Harry Potter recreation, but it definitely feels like the books.
