A Wand To Make Dreams Come True

(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)

So, one of my Daughter’s dreams is to be a fairy. I wish I could make this dream come true for her, but for now she’ll have to settle for a pretty, starry wand to make her own magic:

A Wand to Make Dreams Come True by Jennifer Grace

She was very happy with it:

It was really simple to make the wand:

Step 1: Find a wooden heart on a stick:


Step 2: Paint the heart with white acrylic paint:


Step 3: Decorate it! Everything on the heart is from my Onwards and Upwards Counterfeit Kit. The flower was coloured with Mister Huey Pretty Pink Mist, and I glued everything on using a hot glue gun:


My daughter loves it so much she’s trying to convince my husband he needs one too!

Be Inspired:

Make a magic wand

Find or make a large shape and fill it with an assortment of embellishments

Add some dangly ribbons to a project

What do you think? Do you need a bit more magic in your life?

    Very cute! I’m sure your daughter loves it! I’d love to make one but with a son.. not so much. One day maybe I’ll glitz up the hilt of a sword for him. 🙂
