4th of July Ribbon Wand

Do you know a little girl or fella who would love to have a wand to wave around creating 4th of July magic all day long? Terra from mama says sew is sharing a magical 4th of July Ribbon Wand that is full of excitement and American pride. When all of the other kid’s sparklers, at your 4th of July BBQ festivities, run out of juice and sparkle…your kiddo’s wands will keep exploding with fun and excitement all day and night long! Enjoy!

Hi, I’m Terra from mama says sew, and I’m going to share the tutorial for these ribbon wands today.

They would be perfect for waving during a parade or while watching fireworks! We go to a 4th of July parade with my husband’s family, and I’ve seen wands for sale, but they aren’t patriotic like this and they are kind of expensive when you buy them at the parade.

I made one for each of my children. The supplies below are plenty for four wands-you could probably get a few more wands if you used less ribbon (or make more korker-that was the one I ran out of first).

You will need:
1/4 wooden dowels
Glitter Ribbon
Pom Pom Fringe
Metallic Ribbon
Grosgrain Ribbon
Felt
Craft Paint (optional)

Patriotic Ribbon and Trim
Use the dowels and the grosgrain ribbon to make korker ribbon, and you’re ready to go!

Cut your felt into stars. You’ll need two stars for each wand. I cut two out at a time, so each pair would be exactly the same.

I used craft paint to paint my dowels gold. I used the same dowels that I used to make the korker ribbon.

Grab your korker ribbon and cut it into the desired length. I cut mine about 3/4 the length of the dowel.

Cut your other ribbons to about the same length.

Glue each ribbon around the top of the dowel.

Glue one star on the back, then the other on the top, sandwiching the tops of the ribbons and dowel in between.
