Fourth of July Fairy

My good friend Layla asked me to do a tutorial on how to curl ribbon. I was in the process of preparing photos when I saw Little Birdies Secrets had done a wonderful tutorial on these little princess wands. They do a good job on explaining curling ribbon here.
I love the wands and wanted to make some for my girls to hold at all of the Fourth of July Parades and Fireworks.




I love them. My son, age 5, wants a wand too. We have been watching a lot of Harry Potter movies lately. So, tomorrow I am painting a dowel blue or black and coating it with the glitter paint for him. I know, someone is going to get their eye poked this weekend. It will probably be me.

My next post is my 100th post. I will be holding off until Monday to announce my give-a-way. Meanwhile, be sure to become a follower to be entered to win.

Those are so cute!
And I hope you don't get your eye poked out!
