Make a fairy wand children's craft project by cutting out and coloring heart, flower or star shapes, decorating them, and attaching them to dowels. You need card stock, markers or crayons, glitter glue, a wooden dowel and ribbons.
Use a template containing the desired shapes or draw the shapes by hand. You need two large shapes of the same size and two slightly smaller shapes. Print or draw them on card stock. Before cutting the shapes out, color them using the crayons, markers or water-based paint. At the same time, paint the wooden dowel with the desired color. For instance, paint two large star shapes and the dowel a metallic blue, and paint the smaller stars silver.
After the paint dries, decorate the shapes with glitter glue, and cut them out. Glue the small stars or shapes on top of the bigger corresponding shapes. Turn the shapes over, and tape several strands of curling silver ribbon to the back of each own. Tape the dowel onto the back of one of the shapes, line the shape with glue, and press the other corresponding shape to it. Use sequins or rhinestones to further decorate the wand, and wait for it to dry.
