Kids’ Craft: Make Princess Presto’s Wand

Nov 21, 2013

What You Need:

  • 5/8" dowel (available at craft, hardware and hobby stores) or stick
  • white glue
  • brush
  • purple glitter
  • Mod Podge (optional)
  • purple foam
  • green pom-poms


  • 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.
  • Cut out two purple foam stars (I used a glue gun, so it would dry faster. If using white glue, allow to dry).

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

  • Glue both stars to your dowel or stick (allow to dry, if needed).


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