Making a Magical Fairy Wand

with Gwen Studios

This fairy wand was so fun to make, I love the color combination. I’ve never curled this kind of ribbon and it was fun watching it go from straight to curly after heating. I am sure your little girls would love to have one to play with.

  1. I did not know you could curl ribbon in the oven!!! Wonderful idea that is easy. Great use of your ribbon scraps for hair bow streamers or gift packages!
    Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas
