How to Make a Fairy Flower Wand

The other day I made a sweet little fairy wand, a tulle wand, and showed you how to make a tulle pom pom. I had some left over materials, so I decided to make a flower fairy one.

Again, this type of wand (at least the way I made it) is meant for older kids that don’t have the curiosity to pull things apart. Because I chose to make mine with pins that go through the center of the flowers, please take care not to create something that you know for sure your child will pull apart and become a household hazard. Pins are no fun to step on.

Disclosure over.

How to Make A Fairy Flower Wand

Items needed:

  • box of lace pins
  • Styrofoam ball
  • dowel ribbons for the dowel
  • favorite flowers
  • glue/glue gun

1) Start by just taking the back off of each flower and pushing the pin through the middle and into the styrofoam. It took about 2 bundles of flowers for me to complete the entire ball. I made sure I pushed the flowers together because I liked the look of having all the flower petals mushed up, but you can choose to lay them flat.

Another thought is adding a rhinestone to the center of the flower once its pushed into place. That way the pin top is completely covered and it would add some bling to it.

2) Let your kitten help. Its more fun.

3) I then covered my dowel with my chosen ribbons, in this case it was purple and brown. I originally did it all in brown, removed it, did it in stripes and then thought I would add some leaves to the stem. Ultimately I didnt like the look so I tore it all off.


I think its ok to experiment because you can always start over!

4) Lastly I added a loop on the bottom so it was easy for my daughter to carry around with her.

I hope this inspires you to create some fun and fabulous fairy wands in your own home. And if you love girl fun crafts, you can also learn how to make a tutu hairbow holder or how to make a tutu before you leave!

  1. I Love this idea!!!!!! My daughter is having a flower fairy birthday party and this is the best fairy wand craft I’ve found! It will be a hit! Thanks so much!!!!

  2. Super cute idea Trisha. I love it! I can see making different wands for the different seasons, holidays and even one in every color. I am sure little girls would love to have a large assortment of wands.

    Cool idea. I’ll have to try it. Thanks for posting this!

  3. Trisha, these are beautiful! I just came across this post and I’m totally going to attempt to make one. They would look lovely as wedding table centerpieces

  4. You know it kills me to see your adorable girly tutorials and not have a girl. So cute. Maybe you’ll have some boy tutorials when you have a boy. 😉

  5. You are so crafty Trisha! I love crafts, but I usually have to make something from an example. I totally want to make one of these for my daughter Hannah. She loves to play dress up fairy.

  6. Ok seriously cool. How do you come up with this stuff? I would love to try and make something like this, except I think I got an F in art/craft class, and therefore I gave up permanently. I’ll just enjoy your work from afar 🙂

  7. I made a wand exactly like that for halloween for my daughter. I was worried the flowers would fall out so after removing the back off each flower & poking it in I took it out & put a little glue from the glue gun on and poked it back in. Three months later & it is still in one piece.

  8. This is a beautiful and wonderful idea. My only question is how do you keep it from falling apart? It seems that the pins would loosen and possibly fall out with a little play. Did you use anything to keep it all together?

    • so far i havent had any issues but my daughter isnt much of a rough houser and so far we have had no issues. Someone on a craft forum suggested styrofoam glue. I didnt even know such a thing existed, but i bet you can find it hobby lobby if so

  9. So beautiful. I wonder if my husband would think its weird if I went around in Fairy wings, a tutu and a wand?
