This Fourth of July, be ready for all of the hometown parade fun by making your own parade wands. It’s an easy project that’s patriotic fun for adults and kids. Kids especially love to have a wand to wave at the parade!
The first example uses a wooden dowel from 1/4-1/2″ in diameter, some metal screw eyes, and assorted ribbon. Just screw an eye into one end of your dowel and thread through several lengths of the ribbon until they are tight. If desired, you can pre-paint the dowel to match your choice of ribbons.
