Learning how to make a magic wand can help you assemble many different types of costumes.  Whether your little girl wants to be a princess, a fairy, a witch, or Tinkerbell, a magic wand is an important part of the costume.  Depending on what type of character your child wants to be, you can adjust the colors to match.  Since I am making this magic wand for Tinkerbell, I chose to paint mine yellow and green. A princess or fairy costume could be white, pink or lavender.  A witch costume could be black, red and silver.  Just use your imagination. Make your magic wand in purple and black for a Harry Potter themed magic wand.

  • Attach the dowel and the ribbons to the back of the star using glue.
  • Allow to dry completely.

You can choose to embellish your magic wand or to leave it as is.  A few suggestions are:

  • Add glitter or buttons to the center of the star.
  • Paint your child’s first initial in the center of the smaller star.
  • Add stickers or decoupage your child’s favorite fairy or princess to the center of the star.
  • If you want to use a slightly smaller star, you can substitute a pencil for the dowel and let your child have a magic wand pencil to take to school with them.
  • To make the wand reflective (if you are taking it trick or treating at night), skip the paint and cover the star with aluminum foil instead.

What costume would you wear to go with a magic wand?
