fairy wands (and a few extra for you!)

These were quick to put together and made perfect favors for Fiona's Spring Fairy Party. The kids were all so excited to receive their official fairy wands upon finding their magic crystal.

Making them was a family affair. Fiona and Grammie gathered the sticks. Sheldon cut them and sanded them down. Then I did the frilly, fun parts, the wool felt stars and ribbon. They looked especially cute all laying inside my picnic basket. Handmades are always so charming in bulk.

I thought, perhaps, some of you might like fairy wands for your own kids? Well, I have a little proposition for you. I have been putting in some extra time on the blog these last couple months, and there are so many of you visiting. I am so flattered that you take the time to come to my little corner here and it means so much to me.

Here's the deal... I would love even more visitors in this space, so I am hosting a giveaway and asking for a little something in return. The winner will receive one custom fairy wand and one fairy crystal in a little fabric bag for each child in their immediate family. If you don't have kids, don't worry, you can still enter to win one for yourself.

All you have to do to enter is share this post on Facebook or Twitter then leave a comment here to let me know that you did. You can even enter more than once by sharing on both! (Oh, and while you're at it, like Miranda Makes on Facebook and follow me on Twitter!) Did that make sense? Let me know if you have any questions!

I will be choosing a random winner on Tuesday, May 1st. (May Day!)


UPDATE: A couple of you who don't use Facebook or Twitter have commented, hoping for a chance to win. I should have taken that into account. Sorry! One of those commenters, Rachel, said that she'd email some people about my blog. That is a perfect idea! So, if you don't have Facebook or Twitter, you can still enter. Just email a few friends who would be interested and let them know about the giveaway. :)


Thank you so much to all who played along and left comments. It means so much to me that
you like the wands and visit my blog!

The winner of the fairy wands and crystals is...

I am liking you on FB & sharing there too. Thanks they are soooo cute!
