Fairy wand and hat for Barbie doll


Chapeau de fée et baguette poupée Barbie
The magic wand and the fairy hat are used when Barbie wears her fairy dress... You can easily make them with  what you have arround you : cardboard, a cotton bud ... and if you have craft felt fabric, you might want to cut a little star instead of a heart (and simply glue it to the stick).
You can also realise all these with simple paper.
