New Year's chores with children are always pleasant for parents, and a beautiful costume, complemented by beautiful accessories, will delight any child. Most often, girls at matinees in kindergarten appear as magic fairies or snowflakes. And here you can't do without a magic wand. Making it yourself is quite simple.
Materials for the magic wand
First, it is important to decide what such a stick should be. Naturally beautiful and shiny. This requirement is fully met by New Year's tinsel, foil and rain, which are always used to decorate the New Year tree. The rain will flutter beautifully when the child moves, so using it is a win-win option.
Here's what you need to make a fairy wand:
- regular foil used in the kitchen;
- silver tinsel;
- rain, also silvery;
- stick (you can take a simple stick from a balloon);
- scotch tape to fix the details;
You can show your imagination and expand the list of elements - this may be necessary to create a single design for a plaid and sticks, and other accessories.
How to make a magic wand?
You will need any stick to get started. You can take a branch of a tree of the right size, a balloon stick, a long pencil, or borrow a small piece of a fishing rod from your husband (if he is fond of fishing). Then the selected stick must be carefully wrapped in foil and fixed with tape. It is important that the stick is completely covered with the material. However, try to do this carefully, as the foil tears quite easily.
The next step will be the rain itself. They also need to wrap the stick, but how exactly, completely or in a spiral so that the shiny foil is visible, your imagination will tell. You determine the amount of rain yourself. The design depends on how long the train you need and whether you need it at all. At the ends, it is better to first fix the rain with threads, and then fix it on top with tape. If it is nevertheless decided to make the train, then it is better to tie the tip of the rain with a thread, so that at the most crucial moment it cannot bloom.
From any bright tinsel on the table, lay out an asterisk or snowflake of the required size, the shape of which must also be fixed with threads. You need to fix each of the corners of the figure. You can first make it out of thin wire, and then wrap it with tinsel. This option will help the star or snowflake keep its shape better. It is also better to fix the rain using scotch tape.
The wand is ready. You can safely go to the holiday.
When choosing a rain for a fairy stick, pay attention to the main colors of the costume so that the set looks complete. Your child will be happy with such a small, but very beautiful gift. In addition, you can make this little masterpiece with your own hands together with the child, which will delight the baby even more.
