Hey everyone!! Sorry we have been so MIA lately, we have been so busy gearing up for our Fall launch over at Lulu Roo that our blog has been a little neglected. Today we’re sharing a fun fourth of July craft that we did recently at our Pottery Barn pop up shop collaboration. Let me tell you.. the kids LOVED doing this craft and it is extremely simple and easy. These wands are so fun for waving at parades of carnivals and can be enjoyed by kids of all ages.
Festive ribbon: We liked using different widths and textures
Wooden dowels: We used size 1/4″ x 9″
Glue: For attaching stars, we used hot glue
Stars: We used sparkly stars, foam self adhesive stars can also be used
We started by helping the kids glue the stars to the dowels (and by helping I mean we did it because we used hot glue). Regular craft glue could also be used your kids want in on this step. After the glue dried we attached our ribbons at the top below the stars. We really liked using different textures for the ribbons to add dimension that we found at our local craft store and mixing the gold and silver colors in. We finished by cutting the strings to our desired length, we liked keeping them long to add to the wand effect. We found everything we needed at our local craft store Hobby Lobby.
That’s it! Easy and simple but the kids LOVED them. I can’t wait to pair these with our 4th of July outfits. We saved some to hand out and wave at the parade coming up next week. We’ll definitely be keeping this craft as a tradition for years to come!
We hope you enjoyed this post, happy 4th everyone!!
