POOF! Magic Wands

What little girl doesn’t love playing dress up! We have a house full of Princesses and Fairy’s so Magic Wands it was…

Here’s what you’ll need:
wood dowel, saw, ribbon, scrapbook paper, clear packing tape, sand paper, tac, glue, gem.


Cut dowel to 12″ and sand ends. using clear packing tape the length of the dowel, add a strip of tape to both sides of cut scrapbook paper. Roll tightly the taped paper onto the dowel and trim any excess tape or paper. Now you have a “laminated” dowel. Cut about 6 ribbon strips about 18″-20″ long. Dab a small amount of glue, I used E6000, on tip of dowel and start to layer on ribbon, criss crossing and staggering and adding a tiny amount of glue as you layer. Push a flat tac into the dowel to secure all the ribbon in place. Add a gem with glue to the top of the tac and the very bottom of the wand to add detail!!! And POOF!!! You have yourself a Magic Fairy Wand and happy little girls!

    Love this! So cute. Oh, btw, I saw something in a magazine the other day that reminded me of your silverware drawer…They took some decorative contact paper or wallpaper and spiffed up the inside of the medicine cabinet. So cute!
