How To Make A Magic Wand
Magic Star Wand
- Take a piece of cardboard and with the help of a pen, draw a star on it.
- Using the scissors, cut out a star from the cardboard.
- Cover both the sides of the star with glue.
- Now, sprinkle the star with glitter, in such a way that it covers the former completely, on both the sides.
- Set the star aside so that the glitter gets settled on it completely.
- Cut the ribbon, in the same length as the straw.
- After the star is dry, place the ribbon behind the star, horizontally.
- Now, place the straw on top of the ribbon. Staple the star and ribbon to the straw.

- Take a ribbon and measure 24-inch out of it. Cut it out using the scissor.
