What You Need:

Directions:
  1. Brush your dowel or stick with a thin layer of glue, adding glitter as you go. Allow to dry.

  2. prestowand_brushing_mmcchesney.jpg
  3. To keep the glitter on the wand (and not all over your whole house), coat with a layer of Mod Podge. If you don't have Mod Podge, a coat of watered-down glue will do the trick.
  4. Cut out two purple foam stars (I used a glue gun, so it would dry faster. If using white glue, allow to dry).

  6. Glue green pom-poms to the points of one star (if using white glue, allow to dry).

  10. Glue the points of the stars together.
  11. Voila! You have a wand fit for making word magic!
