Flower Wand

February 20th, 2013 posted by Amy Anderson

Little girls will love this wand for playing dress up and pretending they are a princess or fairy! This is a great project for an older child to do with their little sister, or something for mom and daughter to do together.

You will need:

“Magic” Wand – decorative wood stick or wood dowel and flower shaped wood

FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Ocean Cruise, Wicker White, Perfect Purple, Kelly Green or the colors of your choice

Art Institute Glitter – Blue Hawaii (Ultrafine Opaque), Celery (Ultrafine Opaque), Angel Dust (Ultrafine Transparent)

Mod Podge

Gloss Flat

Paint Brush and Liner

Brush Ribbon – 6 feet of your choice, I used white chiffon

What you do:

Using your flat paint brush, paint your flower first.

Paint the handle and the leaves next. If your wand has black print on it like mine, it will take several coats. I used the smaller liner brush on the petals and to get around the edges of my flower. Allow to dry. Using the end of your brush handle, dot white polka dots on the main body of the flower. Allow to dry.

It’s time to apply glitter in the areas of interest – I’ll show you an example with the center of the flower. Paint Mod Podge in the area that you want glittered

.

Using your glitter (I have one of these cool dispensers), spread the glitter all over the Mod Podge. Allow to dry and then tap on the side of something (like a table) to get ride of the excess. You can see that I did it on the leaves as well – I also went back and added some on the white polka dots. It’s very sparkly! Allow your wand to dry completely overnight before giving it to your princess. I highly recommend adding some ribbon tied around the handle for some extra flair.
