Magic Wand


wand - chop stick, pencil, dowel, or stick
decorations - sequins, jewels, paper cut-outs
paper for pattern
ribbon - pieces about 8 inches or 12 cm long

  1. Choose the shape you want on the top of your wand. It could be one of the patterns, or any shape you like. Cut out the paper pattern.
  2. Fold the felt in half and then trace the pattern on the felt. If you have a dark color of felt, use chalk to trace the pattern or just pin the pattern to the felt and cut around it. Cut out the felt creating two identical felt shapes.
  3. Tie a knot in one end of each piece of ribbon. Put one bead on each ribbon. Use a drop of glue to secure the bead at the end of the ribbon bymaking a magic wand the knot. Cut the ribbon to the length you want. Now, your ‘magic sparks’ are ready and you can put your wand together.
  4. Lay out the first piece of felt. Put a large drop of glue in the center. Lay one of the ribbons on the glue (flat end not the end with the bead). Add more glue and the next two pieces of ribbon.
  5. Add more glue, then put the thin end of the wand on the center of the felt.
  6. Spread glue all around the felt to each of the edges. Lay the second piece of felt on top of the felt so that the wand and ribbon ends are sealed in the center.
  7. Glue on decorations. Use paper and cut out a magic symbol like a lightening bold, if you want.
