When crafting I like to see and try new things. so when i have time i like to get together with my friends and see what we have crafted. these were crafted by a good friend of mine and given to me. you could also use these using straws for the handles, or wooden dowels. these were made with the dowels(plastic) from window blinds, wooden stars, painted your choice of colors. add ribbon, and your done. makes great kids gits or even party favors. also use tulle netting for the tops of wands. lots of fun to be had with these cute wands.
