My son and I had a wandmaking session the other day (being the witchy folks that we are) and I made two wooden spoon wands that I'm pretty pleased with...

The first one is for spying on faeries made with watch parts, ribbons, wire and beads


and this one is especially good for making bedtime wishes with beads, buttons, ribbons and, of course, sparkly things and glitter

Fun! I really like the bedtime wish one.
Did you use a drill or a handsaw or sandpaper to shape them?

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I stole my husbands carving tools. He wasn't too pleased when he saw me using them Tongue so he quickly agreed to drill some holes in the  others I'm working on.

Those are so beautiful and clever!!!
Hmm...I don't cook *that* often...perhaps my spoons could serve a more useful purpose. Tongue
Yours are fantastic!!

That is the neatest idea! Both of the wands are so beautiful! Will you display them somewhere?

I really can't take credit for the idea. A lady emailed me asking about her 3yo son who was using a wooden spoon as a wand to get rid of monsters. I just wanted to prove that spoons can indeed make wonderful wands. Kids always come up with the best ideas Smiley

As for what I'll do with them... I have no idea. Right now I'm just enjoying making them.
