Embroidery & Crochet DIY Magical Fairy Wands for Kids (Halloween Special)


*Nirbhau Nirvair*

Here are the materials we used:

  • Materials
    • Felt
    • Ribbon (in different colors and textures)
    • Wooden Dowels
    • Embellishments: Craft flowers, butterflies, shells
    • Craft paint
  • Tools
    • Scissors
    • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
    • Needle and thread
    • Foam paint brushes
For all wands that we made, we used these wooden dowels that had left over. They are sturdier than BBQ skewers. Another option is to raid your kitchen drawers and use wooden chopsticks from those nights of Chinese takeout!

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

Next we made a pink heart wand inspired by this pink unicorn costume.


We cut out two felt hearts and added iridescent curling ribbon and pearl ribbon.

We were on a roll and having so much fun we decided to make this white wand with a craft flower to go with the Swan Fairy Costume.


And finally we made this butterfly wand to go with the Butterfly Fairy costume.


Making these DIY Magical Fairy Wands was such a fun activity to do with Mia. Be sure to check out the rest of Pottery Barn Kids beautifully crafted costumes!
