Costume Craft-Along: Cupcake Fairy Whisk Wand

Now we're really cookin'! Our Cupcake Fairy costume is sewn and now the final accessories are being crafted. The whisk wand is not only clever, but one of the easiest pieces to make. You probably already have an extra whisk in the back of your kitchen drawer. Otherwise they're cheap and easy to find at most grocery stores.

I started with a plastic tube (from a previously broken wand), wrapped sturdy masking tape around the whisk handle and tube to join them. Then I wrapped pink satin ribbon from the base of the whisk down to the bottom of the tube. Secure the end of the ribbon with a dab of glue or do a simple whipstitch to finish it. To top it off, I added a sparkly gem and ribbon. Now if this whisk wand could magically clean my kitchen I'd be set.

Keep following along with me on this Costume Craft-Along.
We've already constructed:
* The Cupcake Fairy skirt
* The Cupcake Fairy apron with appliqué
* Whisk wand

Next pieces include:
* Fairy wings & tiara made with silver cupcake papers

Stay tuned!
