Crochet Faerie Wands – A DIY Fairy Wand Toy

How to Make a Fairy Wand

Is there anything more whimsical and wondrous than the thought of your very own fairy wand?  These crochet toy fairy wands are easy to make and can be made with leftover fabric and dollar store supplies.

These wands are perfect as little gifts, I made several of them for my granddaughters and their friends.  The girls love them and I find them much safer than the solid wood ones I have seen.

Of course, mine had to be pink and white, with a little bit of sparkle but they would be fun and pretty in any bright colour.

You will need the following supplies.

Wooden dowel

Spray paint (optional)

crochet cotton

leftover fabric

Fabric stiffener

Button, needle, and thread

Hot glue

Start by painting the dowel, spray painting it gold and setting it aside.  This is optional, you can leave it natural if you  prefer.

Crochet a star.

1st round:  Chain 5 and make an ss into the 1st chain to form a loop.

2nd round:  Chain 3 and make 2tr’s into loop, 1 ch, (3tr into loop, 1ch) 4 times, ss to top of starting chain.

3rd round:  ss into next tr, *(2tr, 1dtr, 3ch, 1dtr, 2tr) into next ch sp, ss into the middle tr of next group of 3*, repeat from * to * 5 times.

Back Loop:  Slip stitch in back of star.  Chain 12, sl stitch in back of star, ch2, sl st to star, turn, dc to end of row, sl to star forming a loop. Tie off.

Stiffen the star using either fabric stiffener or sugar starch.

Make the Tulle or Fabric Flowers

You can always purchase a dollar store flower instead of making the fabric ones, but with a few different odds and ends, you can make an endless variety of these wands.

To make these flowers cut 10  circles about 1.5 inches wide. Place two cotton circles to form the base.  Cover with 8 tulle circles.

Place the button in the middle and sew through all 10 layers and the button.  Tie a knot in the back, and reinforce with hot glue.  Fluff the tulle, set aside.

Place the dowel through the star’s loop.

Tie a ribbon above and below the loop.  Sew the ribbon, crochet loop, second ribbon together.

Sew the flower to the crocheted star.  Make sure you sew some of the stitches through to the ribbon.

Reinforce everything with hot glue.

The crocheted star is stiff, but not hard or heavy.  If your little one “makes a wish” with it, on someone’s head,  the star will crash instead of bruising.,

May all your wishes come true.
