How to Craft a Bamboo Wand in Animal Crossing New Horizons

So, you want to craft a bamboo wand. Maybe you’ve heard about how good a Magic Wand is, but you’re wanting something with a bit of a different aesthetic. If you’re wanting to pick up a Magic Wand, we actually have a guide here on what you need to do to make that a reality. However, if it’s the alternative that you want then you can get one – let’s present this rather rustic option to you. The Bamboo Wand might be preferable because it doesn’t require you to get a particular type of Star Fragment that might be hard to pick up – one Large Star Fragment. These are rarer than the regular ones that appear when you wish on stars, so if you don’t want to wait and you have some bamboo lying around, check out our recipe. 

The DIY recipe for a Bamboo Wand is as follows:

  • 3 Star Fragments
  • 6 Young Spring Bamboo

If you’re someone who doesn’t natively have bamboo on your island, you can acquire it from a Bamboo Island or you can get some of your mates to send you some Bamboo Shoots to plant. It’s not rocket science, and we reckon it’s pretty easy to get your hands on the relevant material even if you don’t want to grow your own stash. If you’re someone who’s been consistently getting turnips from Daisy Mae (we’re convinced she’s offed Joan, but whatever), then you’re also going to be able to get bamboo shoots from her as thanks for patronizing her stalk enterprise. 

Now that you have our guide on how to craft a bamboo wand in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it should be a little bit easier for you to actually put one together and to keep yourself looking fresh without having to cart a whole wardrobe around. Handy, right? If you’re someone who hasn’t got a copy of the game yet, you can pick it up here on Amazon via this link and also support Prima Games at the same time.
