After all, every princess needs a magic wand! Learn how to make this simple DIY; follow the tutorial for an easy Princess Wand Craft.
- ¼ inch x 12 inch long dowel rod
- glitter card stock
- stick on gems
- curling ribbon
- printable star wand pattern
- glitter (optional if you can’t find glitter card stock)
Step 1: Print out the printable star wand pattern.
Step 2: Trace the star onto the back side of a piece glitter card stock two times.
Step 3: Use scissors to cut out the 2 stars.
Step 4: Glue the stars back to back, one on each side of the end of the dowel rod, so the dowel rod is sandwiched between the 2 stars. You can use craft glue, or a hot glue gun with an adult’s help.
Step 5: Once the glue has dried, cut 4 to 6 pieces of curling ribbon about 24 inches long. Twist the curling ribbon in half, so there is a loop where you folded it over.
Step 6: Wrap the loop under the dowel rod, and put the 2 ends through the loop over the top of the dowel rod and pull it tight to make a knot around the rod.
Step 7: Repeat the process with the rest of the ribbons.
Step 8: Have an adult use the straight edge of a knife, or a pair of scissors to curl the ribbon, but pulling the sharp edge of the scissors or knife along the ribbon.
Step 9: Let your little princess decorate the star wand with a couple stickers, or some glitter if you couldn’t find glitter card stock.
Step 10: Use some glitter to sprinkle magic dust on the wand.
Step 11: Finish off your princess outfit by adding a princess crown or hat and playing dress up as your favorite princess.
