I made matching wands for the daughter's dance class. Their costumes were bright green with boas. I took the cardboard portion of a wire hanger and hot glued a little fur to the top. They loved it!

My niece wanted a magic wand after watching some Harry Potter movies. I found an old drum stick at a yard sale and painted it in colors that she likes and added glitter. She really likes it.
