To celebrate St Paddy's day, we decided to make a rainbow-inspired wand. After all, wands possess all sorts of powers--think we'll use ours to make a pot of gold appear!
To make your own you will need:
- a 12-inch piece of dowel
- paint in rainbow colours
- ribbon in rainbow colours
- green felt
- glue gun and glue
To start paint your dowel in all the colours of the rainbow. This takes a bit of patience, but the end result is fantastic.
Then take your ribbon...cut it into two-foot lengths. Using your glue gun, glue the ribbon to the top of your dowel.
Next, take your felt and cut out two shamrock shapes.If I don't know how to cut a shape I use a Google image search to help me--type in "shamrock template", and you'll come up with a great variety to choose from.
Glue the felt shamrocks to the top of your wand (front and back) and let the magic begin!
