  1. Cut ribbons double the length of the dowels. (Have this done prior/ Teen Volunteers help you with preparation!)
  2. Tie ribbons at top of dowel.
  3. Wrap Duct Tape around knot at top to secure ribbon as well as create the “horn”.
  4. (Optional) Paint the “horn” with white glue, and dip in glitter for some extra sparkle.

  • $7.00 Dowels
  • $1.00 X 7 of ROY G BIV Ribbon or Yarn


A fun program, will do again. FYI: More girls in attendance / Boys liked stories but could make Wizard Wand instead.
