If you love themed birthdays as much as I do, then you are going to love this homemade fairy wand invitation. We used it for a themed Cinderella party -hence the blue colours-, but a fairy party, rainbow party or anything in that style would work with this invitation too.

Make your own Fairy Wand Party Invitation…

…with only a few ingredients and in less than 15 minutes. It really is that easy to make this beautiful invitation that is bound to set the tone for the party and leave the guests more excited than a standard paper invite or (gasp!) an e-invite (no judgment, we have all been there!)

To be honest, the hardest part about this invitation was to print the words onto the shiny silver paper. Our printer just didn’t seem to like the idea, so it decided to smear the ink all over the page instead on my first two tries. I would therefore recommend using coloured printer paper instead of any shiny paper -or just be prepared that you will need to print more.

To make a fairy wand invitation for your next themed party, you will need:

  • Thick (250gsm or more) paper or cardstock in two colours.

You will need two blue stars and one silver star with the actual invitation written on there. Print the invitation onto the paper before you cut out the stars. You can use these templates or find some online. The smaller star needs to be just 8-10mm smaller in diameter than the larger one. Keep the remaining paper and cut offs for the small stars that will go on the strings.

  • Printer (or the possibility of using your neighbours)
  • Satin ribbons in two colours or more. I have used size 1/8 inch which is the thinnest size ribbon I could get.
  • White craft glue I always use the local brand Fevicol which is a good craft glue that works for nearly all of our projects.

The stick should be smooth, strong and about 12-14″ long. It should not be too thick (max 5-7mm diameter) so the two paper stars can close around it without bulging too much. I found ours in the local Itsy Bitsy shop.
