Flower Princess Wand

For this year Halloween, CJ was Flower Princess. The Princess costume didn't have a wand. How can the flower princess be without a wand! So I came up with a wand fit for the costume.

Materials Used:

Fake flowers
Smiley Ball or Styrofoam ball, 2" diameter
Hot Glue
Kabob sticks/Bamboo skewers
Fabric Glue

Gather all the Supplies

Steps Overview:

  1. Gently slip in the sharp edges of the Bamboo skewers inside Styrofoam ball (refer to picture 1). I used two Bamboo skewers to give a sturdy structure
  2. You can either Hot glue the flowers or poke hole and Fill in the flower. I used the second one, I poked holes in the ball and put in the flower stems one by one
  3. Continue poking holes and cover the entire ball with flowers ***PS:Since I ran out of flowers I just covered the front view with flowers and the other half with felt
  4. Starting at the top of the bamboo skewers i.e. joining portion of the ball and sticks, adhere the ribbon to the sticks together with fabric glue. To hold it in place, secure it with a clothespin. Wind the ribbon all the way down the sticks to the very end. Glue in place and secure with another clothespin. When dry remove clothespins and tie a bow at the top of the wand
Flower Wand Ready!

The flower wand can be used as a flower topiary too!
