You can create lots of different variations of this Easy Valentine’s Day Fairy Wand Craft.

The wand above is made with different colored pipe cleaners to make it stripey. I then used card, instead of stickers, for the heart at the top and added a photo of my daughter to personalize it. She was delighted!

If you want to create this wand outside of Valentine’s Day, then you can use a different shape for the top, like a circle for example, and decorate it however you like. The personalization options is just one of the things I love about this fun craft.
