With Halloween just around the corner I thought this sweet wand would be a fun craft to get into the costume mood!
We love Flower Fairy books by Cicely Mary Barker. They are so sweet and magical. We read them for inspiration just before going on a walk to collect sticks for our wands.
Start by wrapping the stick in pretty ribbon. You can start it off with a little bit of glue to help keep it in place while you wrap. At the top of the ribbon we tied a small bow with an additional peice of ribbon to hold it in place.
Layer the top with glue and tissue squares.
We tied on a couple bells to give it an authentic "tinker."
With a set of wings this costume is perfect for an afternoon to enjoy the beautiful imagination of a five year old.
