DIY Valentine Sparkle Wand

Hello Owlettes, I hope you are all doing well! I am in a full-blown Valentine mood!! Bring on all the pinks , reds, and hearts! I think this could be one of my favorite holidays!! In today’s video, we are making wands! We will be making these at the “Play All Day” event I’m having in a couple of weeks! For the wands I used clear plastic Christmas Ornaments. I have seen these all over Instagram and they work for any occasion.. Christmas, Halloween, Birthday…endless possibilities. The clear ornaments, we picked up over Christmas, but the straws I used for the handles can be purchased on Amazon:
