If you watched my review of the Crochet Lite crochet hook, you know that I said I would add some other things you can use your light up crochet hook for. Here is the first — your own personal magic wand.

The construction takes less than 5 minutes. All you need is:

1. Crochet Lite Crochet Hook 2. 8.5" x 11" Piece of Brown Construction Paper 3. Piece 'o tape

2. 8.5″ x 11″ Piece of Brown Construction Paper
3. Piece ‘o tape

Now you’re ready to go!

Step 1: Take your paper and continually ball it up and flatten, until the paper is nice and soft.

This gives texture to your wand.

Step 2: After your paper is soft, start rolling it from one corner to the other. Starting in the corners instead of just rolling it lengthwise will give you some extra length on the wand and makes a tapered hole to put your hook in that shows more of the light.

Don't roll too tight, you want to be able to fit your hook in the hole on one end.

Step 3: Ensure your hole is large enough to fit your hook but not too big that it will fall out. Re-roll if necessary.

Test if the hook will fit without falling out before Step 4.

Step 4: Once you finish rolling, use a piece of tape to secure the corner to the middle of your wand.

I only had packing tape for my move on hand. Scotch tape will work just fine also.

Step 5: Stick your hook in. If you are using it right now, turn it on before putting it in.

I pushed the hook in until the top was even with the top of the wand.
