' Sew a magical star wand!

star wand tutorial


Hello everyone!

New week, new project! Are you up for making a sweet little star wand with us?

Here´s what you need:

scraps of yellow felt
black embroidery floss
stuffing
paper straw

star template

Print out the star template and cut out two stars from the yellow felt. Mark the eyes and mouth on one star piece and embroider with three strands of black embroidery floss.

Layer the two star shapes on top of each other, the star face facing up to you. Start sewing close to the middle of the bottom, very close to the edge. Sew all the way around the star but leave a bit more than a quarter inch unsewn. This is the opening through which you can now enter the stuffing with a wooden skewer.



Push the stuffing nice and neat into all five corners of your star. Enter your paper straw and you´re done!



See you on Wednesday...can you guess what fairy tale will inspire our color pick?

  1. I think my kids will break the straw before they can finish casting their first spell! Maybe I'll think of another thingy to use. The felt star should be pretty durable even for kids and I love how you gave it some character by putting a face on it!

    1. Yeah the face actually does the trick ;) Jamie loves her star a lot and she keeps putting it next to her pillow when she goes to bed :)
