Valentine Wand

I saw an adorable princess wand on another blog and decided it was a "must-do" project! I modified it a little bit and added my own touches and...voila! A super-cute Valentine gift for my little girl! I still need to make one for my little boy and I think my two year old niece needs one too.
It was so easy to make! I used wool felt, embroidery floss, pillow stuffing, a dowel (cut to size and painted with craft paint), ribbons, and a bit of hot glue. That was it! So cute and so easy to personalize to your liking.
So cute and the little imperfections (such as my not-so-perfect blanket stitch!) just make it even cuter in my opinion!

Oh my goodness, your wand is so cute! Seriously, you could see these! It looks so professional, too~ and your blanket stitch is really good! I need to figure out how to do a blanket stitch; I've never tried it before. :) I hope you have a wonderful day! :)

There is a great You Tube video on doing a blanket stitch--it really is an easy stitch!

That's adorable! You did such a great job on it, too. My stitches wouldn't look like that! ;)
