Magical Fairy Wands - Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome to my magical fairy land as I share three pretty Fairy Wands I decorated using lots of wonderful trims and bobbits from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  First, I bought these adorable paper mache Fairy Wands from Swoon Party Shop and I painted them cream with acrylic paint.  I sprayed them one by one with Krylon Acrylic Spray and dusted them with glitter.  They're difficult to photograph.  I laid them onto an antique Coke crate.
As I mentioned, these pretty wands weren't the easiest little buggers to photograph because they so long and narrow, you know?  After a few failed attempts with mason jars, etc., I decided to lay a doily in the grass and just lay them out for the fairies to come by and grab off my lawn. ?? least I was able to snap a few photos even if they're not the greatest.  My apologies.
I decorated one wand in cream and teal by using lengths of Robin's Egg Wrinkle RibbonIvory Wrinkle RibbonRosemary Natural Lace, Teal Ric-Rac TrimTeal Satin Stitch Ribbon, a Buckle Slide.  I also cut several strips of tulle ribbon and I tied them tightly around the top of each wand.  A bit of hot glue on the back side holds all those tightly-tied ribbons in place.
There's another wand that's also painted and glittered in cream but is accented in browns.  I again cut and tied several strips of Tulle Ribbon around the wand.  To give it a rustic feel, I also tied in some Rosemary Natural Crochet Lace, some Natural Jute, and some Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon.  In the center of the ribbon, there's a length of Solid Ivory Baker's Twine topped with a Light Mocha Open Rose.
The third wand was painted cream and sprinkled with pink glitter.  It's adorned with strips of tulle ribbon, and lengths of Rosemary Natural Crochet Lace, Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon, Dusty Rose Wrinkle Ribbon, and a White Flatback Pearl tucked inside a pearl Buckle Slide.
There are always SO many great ribbons, trims and more - just waiting for you at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can create something different, something FUN, something inspired by all the great products you'll find when you shop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Thanks again for stopping by, and please visit often for lots of inspiration and fun.


I'm linking up my magical fairy wands at Simon Says Stamp.  Perhaps the "magic" they hold will bring a WIN my way this week.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog - Simon Says "Something FEMININE" - well, these are about as feminine as they come.  Right?


  1. These are just the cutest. I love the way they look. Some little girl would love to wave these around. Okay, maybe I would too. [Bunny]

  2. These are so wonderful Karen. I bet there are going to be some very excited little girls when these are gifted!
