I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb if I said that most women love sparkly things, specifically those in the diamond family! You don’t have to be a girly girl to appreciate the beauty that bits of glamorous glittery things bring. And that impact goes far beyond personal style. From home decor to wedding day designs, the classic look of glam has long time reigned. And you need only take one quick look at a well designed concept to understand why. Bring on the bling!

If you’re looking for a super simple and sweet way to get your friends and family involved in your wedding ceremony, consider it found! Just add these 3 step whimsical wands to your festivities.

The Supplies

The Step by Step

diy wedding wands - step 1

Step 1: cut ribbons to a length of approximately 40-41″. Layer the personalized blue ribbon over the wide white ribbon and tie to your wooden stick, about 2″ from the top. Once looped and before securing, make sure to position your ribbons on both sides of the strand such that the wording faces up.

Step 2: cut gold twine to the same length as the ribbons and loop it through the front of a hole punched tag. Note: looping through the front of the tag versus the back will impact how your card sits. Lay the card behind the ribbons and secure the twine around the ribbons with a double knot. Once the tag and twine are secure, knot the ribbons around the twine, again making sure to position your ribbons on both sides of the strand such that the wording faces up.

Step 3: loop the mini bell through the already attached gold twine and secure to the ribbons with a double knot.
