"LUCKY" wand

                                              Hey y'all and welcome back!! 

So.. St.Patrick's Day is Sunday and I typically send a lil something for my son's pre-school class for darn near EVERY lil holiday. The more I thought about it the more I DIDN'T want candy. Well.. they just got a boat load for Valentine's and Easter is right around the corner so.... 

the "LUCKY WAND" was born!! 
Twirl the wand and point for a lil luck. :)  My son asked me if it was a REAL magic wand. LOL.. Hmm.. I had to say no, but he could pretend it was. :)  He was cool with that idea. Shew... I had already made 14 by the time we had this conversation.. 


These lil guys were EASY to make and his class will LOVE them!! 

I painted lollipop sticks.. let dry then cut shamrocks and the lil pot combo on my Cameo. I did buy the shamrock and the lil pot from the Sil store. I used glitter and glue to add some sparkle to the clovers and then glued on the pot. ( I STILL have glitter everywhere!!!  Lovin the sparkles everywhere.. hehe)  I made 2 shamrocks for each stick and glued them together after adding a lil ribbon. EASY PEASY!!!  The hardest thing was deciding what I wanted and then gluing the lil pieces on the money kettles. 

So.. my mission is accomplished and I won't feel TOO bad when I send candy to school in the Easter goodies :)  

Thank you for stopping by!!

Hugs, 
Tanya
