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:

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?

  1. That’s just too adorable ! I should make one for my youngest daughter so she find all the things she misplaces LOL


  2. that is so sweet and she looks so happy with it in the photo bless! I would rather have a wand from Harry Potter if I am honest…. I want to be a wizard not a fairy lol!!


  3. hehehe I’m still trying to imagine your husband with one! I have a little niece who would love one of these …. a rainbow-coloured one :o)


  4. 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. 🙂
