Tulle PomPom Magic Wand
I'd seen tulle pompom wands for sale somewhere online, but figured they couldn't be hard to make -- and they weren't. Next time, I'll be a little more daring with the colors.
Cut dowel rod to 12".
Paint bottom of dowel rod desired color (e.g. a color that matches your ribbon) so the wood doesn't show at the bottom of the wand.
Cut tulle to desired length (I used about 10 feet). Cut in half lengthwise (into two 3" strips if using 6" width tulle).
Holding one white sparkle and one light pink strip together, wrap pompom maker (or card). I used a Clover pompom maker, but there are lots of easy ways to make poms.
Tie pompom closed with 25" length of light pink ribbon.
Tie ribbon dangling from pompom, a 25" length of dark pink ribbon and a 25" length of white sparkle ribbon to the top of the dowel rod and double knot very tightly.
Find center of pompom and insert a blob of hot glue into the center. Immediately push the dowel rod into the hot glue.
Adjust pompom until satisfied with the look. Trim ribbons to desired length. Let glue dry.
