Yes, it took me all this time (from October till now) to download the pictures in my camera. How awful is that?
Ok, so last Halloween I decided I would be a fairy so I could wear a dress I don't get to wear too often. I lazed on the wings and bought a pair of very cute pixie wings. But when it came to the wand, I felt I could do much better with no money and just a few minutes of my time. And this is the result:
I basically dressed up a knitting needle. You can see its partner next to it for comparison. Everything I used, I already had laying around in my room. I pretty much save every bit of ribbon that comes my way. Since the needle was a lovely metallic blue, I let it show through the white ribbon I wrapped around it.
For the star, I used white felt (not a good idea but that was what I had), and yellow and gold acrylic paint.
And that's a lonely earring that lost its pair. I used some gold ribbon here so the golden star wouldn't be so random in the midst of the other colors.
My inspiration came from this one right here: http://www.make-your-own-baby-stuff.com/fairy-wand.html
It was super easy to make, so I hope this helps someone next Halloween!
