I cut out two stars & stitched them together. I added 2 pieces of ribbon while stitching. I stuffed the star with Eco Fill then added white glue to the top of the tube & added the star to the top.

Here it is in action. The white glue helps keep the wand in one piece while it's being used.

Here's another option... Use scrap felt & yarn for your wand. You can go crazy with the colours! I added the star to a dowel then wrapped it with yarn.
