So, here are the materials we used:
We found a few sticks laying around outside; I broke a few to make them the size that I wanted – you know, magic wand size. I tried to find ones that weren’t too poky.
I made a trip to the craft store, which I don’t do often because that place scares me and I don’t know where anything is. But we got feathers, sequins and tiny pom-poms. (Note: There was an even tinier size of pom-pom; I should have gone for that size, they would have stuck onto the wands better but I was worried they would be too small for my kiddo to use. GET THE TINY POM-POMS!)
My camera is LAME so I apologize for the lack of extreme focus here, but what I was attempting to show is that we covered the end of the stick with Japanese deco tape – any kind of tape would do, or fabric, just to make sure no pokies.
Then we started in! Here’s how it went down: a line of glue down the wand, then feathers, then more dabs of glue, then sequins atop the glue blobs, and then more small lines of glue (Note: we ran out of glue.) and then glitter on top of that.
You know, I think ANYTHING would look good if you poured glitter and sequins on it. I think they should be mandatory materials for any craft. Whatcha making? Who knows? Does it have glitter and sequins? Then you’re all good!
And looky at these little beauties – aren’t they sparkletastic?
