Reduce your dowel into 30cm lengths and sand the edges, then paint the dowels or just leave them as is. I painted mine ivory making use of kaisercraft acrylic paint.

To finish, heat-seal the edges of the ribbon so they don’t fray. To do this, very carefully wave the edge close to a candle flame so that the heat of the flame slightly melts, but doesn’t burn the ribbon.

Flatten with your fingers if it curls up.

For a touch of glam, add a little rhinestone to the best of the wand.
