Magic Wand Tutorial
wooden dowel stick
wool (spun for wrapping the stick)
wool fleece (for stuffing)
pretty things to embelish with - think buttons, beads, shells
So to the making -
First you will need to drill a tiny hole in the of dowel about an inch or so down from one end - check that your usual sewing needle will fit through it - and drill slowly so you don't spilt the wood.
Then get a ball of wool and wrap the stick. Starting at the end WITHOUT the hole squirt a few inches of glue down to the end, place the blunt end piece of the wool on the glue running down the stick toward the end you just glued
Start wrapping up the stick; you will cover in your blunt end as you go, add more glue every few inches but don't be too generous or it will get messy and set hard and nasty.
