DIY Wedding Wands

Did you decide to use sparklers for your wedding exit, only to have your wedding venue shut down that idea? Well you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve found an equally charming send-off wedding idea. The Wedding Wand!

Below you’ll find the super easy steps for diy’ing these wedding wands.

DIY-wedding-ideas

Step 1: Spray paint your rod/dowels or leave them oh natural.

Step 2: Cut your ribbon into desired lengths {approximately 35 inches of ribbon per wand}.

Step 3: Then tie a knot at the end of the length of ribbon around one end of your rod/dowel. Trim any excess ribbon.

Step 4: Add a drop of hot glue {or superglue} behind the knot and press firmly onto the dowel. Set overnight.

Step 5: The following day, hold the edges of your ribbon over a flame {just barley}. This will melt the cut edges so the ribbons won’t fray.

You can then display the wedding wands in vases or buckets at the wedding reception. Another cute wedding idea is to use them as a wedding favour alternative.

Materials
– 12-inch rods/dowels
– Spray paint {if you want to jazz it up}
– Lightweight ribbon {narrow satin ribbon seems to work best}
– Scissors
– Glue gun or super glue
– Lighter
