We just had a fabulous birthday party for our granddaughter - part dino-themed and part princess-themed. So the princess needed a fabulous magic wand to help her celebrate! She is so in love with this magic wand - she's running around the house, waving it at everyone and yelling POOF (her Gramps taught her that one)!
These smaller sized Classic Monogram letters were perfect for this project. I chose the plain font in white- so I could color them to match my project.
I used a ready-made paper maché star, then painted it, crackled it and added some gold details. Since it is paper, the paint dried really quickly - so no time spent watching paint dry!
It is so easy to color your letters using a variety of mediums. My favorite is chalk ink - it's opaque so it covers in one coat. Put your letters on a piece of scratch paper and simply press the ink pad down on them to color. Set aside to dry.
After I added my letters I finished the project with paper flowers and lots of twine to give it a frilly, girly look. She is so in love with it! You can find Joy embroidered iron-on numbers and letters in a variety of fonts, colors and sizes at your local craft store.
