These guys are super easy to make. All you need are:
*Make sure you have large holes in your beads big enough to go over the twisted wire.
Start the Fairy Wand Plant Poke
Cut a length of wire approximately 30”long. Place your top bead on the wire and find the middle of the wire. Twist the wire around the top bead to secure it tightly.
Gently twist the two pieces of wire together to make a sturdy backbone for your fairy wand. Don’t worry that it’s not perfectly straight. Make sure that the holes are big enough in your beads to let the twisted wire go through.
Place the Beads
Continue placing you bead on the wire in your choose pattern until you have approximately 10” of beads. This is my preference, but the length is totally up to you. Just be sure to leave approximately 4” bare at the bottom to poke it into the plant.
Before placing the last bead, smear a good amount of E6000 on the wire. Slide the last bead over and then, holding the wand upside down, smear some more E6000 on the bottom of the last bead. Measure 4” and snip the end. Place the wand upside down where the E6000 can dry.
Once the E6000 is dry, I waited until the next day to make sure it was good and dry, so you can go ahead and poke it into a plant or out in a flower bed. They make a great, sparkling addition wherever you put them.
