How to Make Easy Fairy Wands

Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing these easy  fairy wands.

We live and breath all things fairy in my house because my preschooler can’t get enough  fairy crafts.  From making  simple fairy  wings  to fluttering in the backyard, we have lots of fairy fun!   But, after a couple of our wands broke, I decided to try and make our own fairy wands.  I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to make one that my daughter would love, but I was pleasantly surprised to see her response when I walked in with these…

easy-fairy-wands-for-kidsMy daughter was sitting on the couch when I walked in with these fairy wands.

Her jaw dropped  and she  muttered softly, “Can we keep them??”

For me, there could be no better reaction.  Especially because they were  deceptively easy to make!

Materials for Easy Fairy Wands

  • Sticks
  • Glue Gun
  • Wax paper – you’ll see  that  I used aluminum foil, but it will stick a little to your stars.  Wax paper is best.
  • Extra glue sticks
  • Metallic paint
  • Glitter


How to Make Easy Fairy  Wands

Heat your glue gun and set your sticks on the wax paper (learn from my mistake and go out to buy wax paper if you don’t have it – it makes this *so* much easier than getting aluminum foil stuck to the star…it takes such a long time to peel that foil off…)

Trace a star at the top of the sticks.  Make sure to put glue over the top of the stick.

Trace  an extra layer of glue around the star outline you just made.  Then, fill in the star with more glue.

When you’re done filling in the star, put extra glue at the joint where the star and stick overlap.  Be generous here – that extra glue will help keep the star on top of the wand.

Let dry.

Peel the star apart from the wax paper.

Paint and add glitter while the paint is still wet.

Let dry again.


Tip:  I was shocked  that I could free hand the star shape (who knew I could do that?!).  If you need help, put an outline of a star shape underneath your wax paper to trace.  


 Make these for a slumber party or birthday party craft.  Kids will love having their own unique fairy wand that is so simple to make.
