I've seen fairly expensive kits and wands in the store and I was determined to make my own, while cutting the costs!!!
So, while in the process of making this project, my daughter and I decided to film a crafty video together. There is nothing more that I love than crafting with her, so this was a real treat (she's pretty determined when it comes to crafting)! We painted the dowel rods ahead of time. I purchased a long one and then used some scissors to cut it down. I used sandpaper to file it, so the edges were nice and smooth. Then, she painted them all using acrylic paint and foam brushes.
You can see an 'action shot' of her working diligently below!
