Here are the materials we used:
- Ribbon (in different colors and textures)
- Wooden Dowels
- Embellishments: Craft flowers, butterflies, shells
- Craft paint
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Needle and thread
- Foam paint brushes
First, we picked paint colors to match a few of the fairy costumes and painted the dowels with a foam paint brush. Acrylic craft paint works well, because it dries in seconds.
Wand for A Mermaid
made a felt flower by cutting out petal shapes and sewing them together with a needle and thread.
Pick out some ribbon in varying textures and thicknesses. For all four wands, I cut out felt circles to glue to the back of each wand to hide the dowel and the ribbon.
Glue it all together with hot glue and embellished the front with a shell
