DIY Toddler Ribbon Wand

1 wooden paint stir stick
8' - 10’ of 7/8” wide ribbon
Acrylic paint and paintbrush
Miter saw or hand saw
Drill and drill bit
Sand paper

Using a saw, cut the stir stick to 9” long. (Keep the handle end intact and cut from the opposite end.) Drill a hole 1/2” in from the end, centered across the width of the stick.  Lightly sand edges until smooth. 

Paint stir stick with acrylic paint and let dry.

Cut ends of ribbon at an angle and melt with an open flame to prevent fraying. Fold ribbon in half and thread through hole in stir stick. Secure with knot. Have fun dancing!
