Supplies For a Ribbon Wand

Ribbon 9′  long X 7/8″ wide

Wooden Dowel Rod 5/16″ X 36″

Wooden Bead 1″ with 3/8″ hole

(Krylon Glitter Blast Spray Paint – Optional)

Ribbon Wand Supplies (beads, ribbon, wooden dowel)

How to make Ribbon Wand

We first gave our bead and dowel rod a coat of glitter spray paint because we love glitter and this paint is amazing! (please use spray paint outside or in a very well-ventilated area. also, this step should be done by an adult.)

 

Krylon Glitter Blast Spray Paint for Ribbon Wand Tutorial

Place ribbon about 1 – 2 inches over the top of the wooden dowel.

Ribbon Wand Tutorial Step 1 (attaching ribbon to dowel)

Place bead on top securing the ribbon. Make sure the bead is all the way on and really snug. Add another layer of ribbon if the bead is not snug.
