Magical Princess Wand Tutorial

Every girl, sometime in her life dreams of being a princess. This princess wand is perfect for encouraging those dreamy imaginations! Perfect for parties or just playtime and dress up!

1. With a pencil, lightly trace the spiral pattern onto cardstock or printed paper. Cut out.

2. Begin rolling up the spiral, beginning at the outside edge, making sure the first center rolls are extra tight. This will be the center of your flower. Keep rolling until you are at the end of your spiral.

3. Let go of your flower and let it loosen up. Place a small dab of hot glue on bottom of spiral and set the rose down on table, placing your finger on top of flower to press securely down as it dries. Be careful not to burn yourself! Fold leaves in half to create crease and open up.

4. Place all ribbon neatly together and tie securely 1” from the top of the wand with a half knot. Keep in place with a couple dabs of hot glue near the knot. Glue flowers onto wand as shown. Add leaves after. Add a little princess sparkle by placing ‘Crystal’ Stickles to the edges of the roses. (Or use Mono-Adhesive glue and white or clear glitter)

Don't want to come up with the supplies on your own?? We've got it all set up in a kit right here and ready to be assembled!
