Monday Makery - Classic Play Magic Wand

With the Summer holidays almost over we felt we needed a little touch of magic for the final weeks. So, we made our very own personal magic wands. With a snippety snip and a quick little stitch they're ready for casting magic upon the days..... wishing we could make the summer last forever.

Here's what you'll need:

  • fabric, scissors, pencil, star shaped cookie cutters, a doweling stick (we used garden sticks) and glue. If you like you can add ribbons, beads and sequins too.
Here's how:
  1. Draw around your star shaped cookie cutter onto the chosen fabric. Repeat.
  2. Cut out your 2 stars.
  3. With one star on top of the other sew around the edges leaving a small space at the bottom to enable you to stuff it full of magic.
  4. Stuff the star with stuffing - (whisper some magic words as you go) 
  5. Put some glue around the end of your doweling stick and insert into the bottom of the star.
  6. Using clothes pegs, peg the fabric together either side of the doweling stick to hold in place and leave to dry.
  7. Once dry, remove the pegs and sew along the final base to seal the magic inside.

Happy Magical Making


  1. Must try and remember these for my daughter's next birthday party - perfect going home presents for sparkly girls!

  2. Hello! thanks for sharing, they are super pretty. A question, though. I'm planning on using cotton fabric (like your white wand in the photo), but if I use something like that is not going to fray around the edges?
