DIY Fairy Dust - DIY Spells - Sparkle Bright Spell

Hi there to all our wonderful fairy friends,

You can never have enough magic or sparkle in your life, right! So today I'm going to show you how you can make you're very own DIY Fairy Sparkles and cast you're very own Fairy spells ;)

Firstly decide what spell you want to cast, you might want a 'wishing spell', or a 'good luck spell' or maybe you're planning your wedding and want to make a 'happily ever after' spell as your wedding favours! What ever spell you want to conjure the method will be the same. 

Today we made a batch of ' Sparkle Bright' spells ;) So we basically added anything that sparkled and shined bright! For a 'Good Luck' spell add shamrock or horse shoe confetti, for a 'Wishing Spell' add star confetti and for a ' Happily Ever After' spell use heart, dove and wedding bells confetti. You just gotta get creative and use your imagination.

Here's what we used to make our 'Sparkle Bright' Spell:

Heavy glitter (Bigger flakes of glitter), tiny gold stars, fine glitter, shiny sequins, crystal gems, mini pom POM's, clear bags, card paper, metallic foil paper (if you can't find this use the colour foil paper off a chocolate bar and some tinfoil) a paper punch, scissors, stickers to seal your bags of sparkles. I bought all of our supplies from my local stationary store and tesco.

Firstly We named our spell and decided on the directions of how best to use /cast it ;)
Then we made these labels on our computer and printed them off. Once we cut them out we popped them into the little clear bags.

To make the confetti we cut vertical strips into the metallic paper using the scissors.

The thinner the strips the finer the confetti!

Then cut the ends horizontally. Then we folded each strip in half.

Using the paper punch we made circular shaped confetti using the different color metallic paper.

The kids had so much fun making these, adding a pinch of this and a dash of that until our spell was perfect and complete. We left them by our Fairy 'Fleurs' Fairy Door and asked her to dust our spell with her fairy magic to make it work just right and she did!

Easy to pop in a card and send a little Sparkle of Happiness to someone special! Or pop it in your handbag for those days when you need a little sparkle of happiness in your day ;) We left a few of our spells about our town here there and everywhere ;) 

Cast you spell in the air, twirl around catch the glitter as it flutters to the ground, it'll glisten in your hair confetti and sparkles everywhere!

Put a little sparkle in your day,

Sparkle Bright,
