Tulle Fairy Wand Tutorial



I was inspired to make this by Sweet 'N Sassy Girls.

Supplies needed:

tulle
dowell
ribbon
thread
hot glue

You'll need to cut twenty strips of tulle, about 6 inches long. Make two piles with ten pieces of tulle in each. If you are using more than one color, then you'll want to alternate the colors as you make your piles.



Tie a piece of thread in the middle of each pile. Make sure the thread is long enough to use again for the next step.



Place one pile across the other and secure them together with the thread.



Pull apart all the strips until it becomes a little poof. Cut the excess thread.



Hot glue ribbon to a small dowell so it is completely covered.



Cut six pieces of ribbon and hot glue to the top of the dowell. Then hot glue your proof on top of the ribbon.



There you go. A fairy wand for your little princess. So, tell me, how did I do? If you make one I would love to see it!

  1. Super cute. I have three-year-old twin girls who would go crazy for wands like this, and the tu-tu's in the previous post as well. Great Christmas present ideas.

  5. Mindy - I hot glued the end of each ribbon to the top of the dowell and then hot glued the poof on top to hide any overlap.
