How to Make Ribbon Wands

Materials You’ll Need To Make Ribbon Wands:

  • Wooden dowels (you can buy a pack of 10 or 12 at Walmart for around $2!)
  • Various colorful ribbon (I prefer to use satin ribbon)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Matches or a lighter, optional

DIY Ribbon Wands Directions:

  1. Cut the ribbon to your desired lengths.
  2. Optional: Burn the edges of the ribbon to keep them from fraying.
  3. Tie one ribbon at a time to the end of the dowel. Secure it from sliding or coming undone with some hot glue, and let it dry completely.
  4. Once dry, hand one ribbon wand to each kid and let them run around outside on a pretty spring day!
