|How many wands does Nicole "need?" Evidently, A LOT!|
Today's craft was requested by a viewer/reader. (Hi Amanda!!! I hope this helps!) These fairy wands are a huge hit in my house and guess what??? They are super easy to make. (No really, it's a ridiculously simple project, but very cute!) I made 20 of them as party favors for my niece's 5th birthday party, and they were a BIG hit! IF you are making multiple wands, my suggestion is to make them assembly-line fashion. I started making each wand one by one and I literally had a breakdown. I couldn't believe I had agreed to make soo many wands. Then...I calmed down (I mean, come on they're just fairy wands.) and realized that it would go much faster to work on one step at a time.
I also realize that I don't give any measurements in the video...this is intentional. I can't tell you exactly how much ribbon you'll need because it is completely dependent on the width of your ribbon, the length and diameter of your wooden dowel, as well as how you end up wrapping the wand. If you are making multiples, here is my suggestion - wrap one wand, then unwrap it, measure the amount of ribbon you used and cut all of the ribbon you will need for the wands.

Do you have a viewer request??? I would love to hear your suggestions - be it paper crafting or something else. Let me know!
Have a happy Monday!
