How to Make Wedding Ribbon Wands


Hello, everyone!  Suzette asked me to post my recent video on how to make wedding ribbon wands.  We found the idea for ribbon wands while searching the internet for send off ideas, and thought they were such a pretty and fun project.  There are several different styles of wands, made in different ways, but this one is our favorite.  I decided to sit down and make a tutorial video, and thought it might be a help to someone else wanting to make them.  Of course they can be made for any kind of celebration, but these are for Tim and Suzette’s wedding!

  1. I am a MOB with a little over 2 weeks to go! We just decided to add ribbon wands to the ceremony and, needless to say we are short on time. I am wondering what size hooks you used.

    • You’re not the first person to ask that, so it must be the one thing I left out of the video… sorry! I looked back on our eBay purchase history and found what we ordered… Here’s a link to the product:
      The are Larson Hardware #14 Large Eye Screw Steel Zinc (50).
      I’m sure you can just go to Lowes or Home Depot and find the #14 size.
      Best wishes to you and I hope you can get them made! How many are you planning on making? We made 200 and it took quite a while, but if you don’t have a large number to make, you should be ok!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this video. It was so very helpful and detailed. I plan to help my sister in law with these for her wedding, but we weren’t quite sure how to do it or where to buy supplies. You helped us with both aspects. Thanks again for taking the time to help others make their day just as special!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! I am making them for my wedding as well…I just found out we can’t throw anything OR use bubbles…so this is the perfect alternative! Also, thank you for telling us where you bought the hooks, I went to the hardware store and they had them but in small packs and at a wayyyy higher price then ebay!

    Also I think the ribbon wands look so pretty in pictures!

    • Hi Britni!
      Thank you for your sweet comment! I’m excited for you, and know your ribbon wands will be beautiful. eBay is a great resource for finding deals on bulk items like the hooks. I’m so glad the video was a help to you 🙂

  4. Thank you so much!! I just found out last minute that our venue would not allow and bird seed or sparklers so I panicked, but watching this was a life saver!! I ran to Hobby Lobby found everything I needed and will be doing this tonight (my wedding is in 11 days LOL) again thank you!!!
