October Overhauling - Stashbusted Project #3

Today's project is made from my mass quantities of 
scrap fabric, dowels and ribbon!  
It's a Personalized Princess Wand 
Pin It
as part of a birthday gift for my littlest guy's friend.
Want to make one?  Of course you do, so here's how!

Ingredients
Wood Dowel
Fabric 
Felt
Interfacing
Ribbon
Button
Hot Glue
Start by ironing your interfacing between your two fabrics. 
Then cut out two stars, one in fabric and one in felt.
Leave a hole in the bottom big enough to fit a dowel and pin the edges together. 
Sew.. sew what..? sew your star!
Next wrap your dowel in two colors of ribbon.  Start by hot gluing the ribbon the top and twirling.  Then Hot glue the ribbon around the base. 
Add a button to the bottom for a cute finished look. 
Next glue some ribbon to the dowel and insert into the hole and hot glue closed. 
Then tie a sweet bow.
And of course, since I love personalized stuff.. 
I added a Big "G"
Perfect for a Princess!
I am sharing with

Love,

  2. That would be a great project for kids to make themselves, too (with just a bit of supervision).

  5. So cute! Unfortunately, I don't know any little girls whom I could make this for, my friends all have boys =( But I'm pinning it, who knows when the next wannabe princess comes along!
