Trace a circle onto a piece of cardboard, then another one around it about one inch outside of it. This one is about 4 inches in diameter. Cut the circle out.
Glue the cut out circle onto a wooden dowel. You can decorate the dowel rod anyway you’d like, paint it, glitter it, or wrap it in pretty ribbon.
Glue the feather boa onto the cardboard ring using plenty of hot glue. Flip the wand over and glue more boa to the back of the circle.
Tie on some matching ribbons to the base of the circle.
Time to embellish! Add gems, pearls, glitter! Make your fairy wand sparkle and shine!
Make a wand in every color. Experiment with the shape of the feathered top, a sphere of feathers or a star shape could be magical as well.
