How to Create a Wishing Star Wand + Pinnochio on DVD

review affiliate link disclaimer

My daughter is obsessed with all things wands, swards, and sticks. Anything she can swing around and bop people on the head with (gently of course), she loves. And with our recent obsession with Pinocchio since it came out on Blu-Ray, it was the perfect way to commemorate the movie.

As we were planning for a family movie night, I decided to let the kids make their own wands customized to their likes and needs. It really was a simple craft and the kids had a great time doing it! With the help of mom and a glue gun to finish everything off.

So if you’re little princess loves wands as much as mine do, I highly suggest trying your hand at making a wishing star wand. It’s simple, easy, and takes less than 5 minutes!

How to Create a Wishing Star Wand

What you’ll need:

  • wooden dowels, cut to size (we purchased 48″ dowels and cut them in thirds)
  • felt, any color
  • ribbon, any color
  • glue gun

What you do: 

1. Cut out felt into the size and shape you want for the top of your wand. Cut out coordinating ribbon in the amount and length you prefer.

2. Do a dry run before gluing everything together to make sure the felt pieces fit together on the top of the wand.

3. Tie the ribbon onto the top of the stick and secure with the hot glue.

3a. Make sure to go all around the dowel so that the ribbon doesn’t slip down.

4. Now it’s time to glue down the felt pieces. Start with a small dab on one side of the dowel and adhere the first felt piece.

5. Then add a few dabs of hot glue to the other end of the dowel and the felt piece already adhered. Place the second felt piece on top covering the top of the dowel completely and sandwiching the ribbon in between the two felt pieces.

 
6. Hand the wand over to your favorite princess and watch them play! 

See how easy that was?

What type of wand would you make?

Simple Ideas for a Magical Disney Princess Halloween Party

There’s something magical about Halloweentime. The change of the seasons, the feel of the air, and the decorations and dressing up.

This year my kids have caught on to the magic! They eagerly awaited the day we chose our costumes for this year (my son will be going as a duck and my daughter a ladybug, both homemade) but didn’t want to leave it at that.

So I decided to create a celebration separate from our Halloween party next week to allow the kids a chance to dress up and have some fun!

How to Create a Magical Time with a Disney Princesses Halloween Party

When I found out I was having a girl, many emotions came over me. Excitement, surprise, happiness. And as I went through my pregnancy with my daughter those emotions grew stronger and stronger. I started to have visions of the future. What we’d do together, what she would like, if we’d be able to bond over the same things.

One of my favorite memories in childhood are those made while I watched my favorite Disney movies with my family. Our family has been deeply rooted with Disney for quite a while and the love for the imagination and creativity of Disney has passed down through the generations. From trips to Disneyland as a child, to picking out that special Disney Princess dress at the store to play dress up, the magic was alive with the the help of Disney’s inspiration.
