These mermaid fairy wands are so easy to make, and make great party favors or room decor. We just used a dowel, some ribbon, a starfish and some hot glue!
Gather your materials, you can find bags of starfish on Amazon and ribbon and wooden craft dowels at your local craft store (we got ours at Michaels).
Start by cutting different lengths of ribbon, I didn't measure, just cut randomly. Then tie them to the top of the dowel. Since our ribbons were on the thick side, I tied 2 or 3 at a time and then secured with a dot of hot glue.
Then just hot glue your starfish to the front and you're done!
