I adore ribbon wands! They’re always such a fun touch at a wedding and I really like how Mel created them her personal! Here’s her tutorial for producing your own ribbon wands!
What you require:
Dowel cut into 30cm lengths
24mm wide stain backed ribbon in three various colours (I utilized 27 metres of every single colour for 65 wands)
What to do:
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.
Cut the ribbon into 40cm lengths and utilizing the glue gun, attach three colours together at one end.
Apply glue to the dowel and wrap the ribbons around and secure with much more glue.
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.
