In order to create fairy wands, you will need:

- Glitter in your choice of color or colors
- Markers (optional)
You can also make your own fairy wand by using any combination of ribbons, feathers, beads, sequins and buttons you want. You can use stickers too! These are all great ways to add some extra flair. If you have paper lying around the house that has a cute print on it, it would be fun to cover your pipe cleaner with this paper. To create the handle for your wand use yarn or foam sheets cut into strips (if you don’t have either of these things at home consider asking someone who does!).
