I recently shared this magic wand tutorial over at My Beautiful, Crazy Life. It is by far my favorite project that I’ve completed because Riley absolutely adores the final product. You all know she loves her sweets and anything girly, which makes it fun for this mama. She recently fell in love with the book, Camilla the Cupcake Fairy by Tim Bugbird. I’m actually thinking of having her third birthday party based on this book. Yes, her birthday is in December, I’m a planner. What can I say?
The first thing I did was to mod podge the scrapbook paper onto the star so that Riley could help me stick on the glitter hearts. There’s a heart on the back as well. I pre-drilled a short hole into the dowel to screw the eye hook in. I then put the key chain through the eye hook. I ended up hot gluing the star onto the top of the eye hook. Riley managed to knock the star off within the first five minutes of it being completed so I really hot glued the you know what out of the star onto the eye hook. It’s still attached today and we made this over a week ago.
The next part is the ribbons. My assistant clearly thought the ribbon served better as a telescope!
I tied four different colors of ribbon onto the key chain and wrapped another one around the dowel. The ribbon on the dowel I hot glued down at the top and bottom. The ribbon on the key chain I simply tied into a knot. Someone looks happy, right?
All of our pre-planning definitely ended up being a success. Riley’s Cupcake Birthday Party was so much fun and I’m pretty sure the birthday girl had an absolute blast. Plus, the magic wand is still used on a daily basis!
