Is your family getting excited about Easter? We love this season not only for the holiday itself, but because it is a sure sign of spring. That makes it an extra-good time to do some pretty spring-like DIY projects like this adorable DIY Dollar Store Easter Wands Craft!
This Dollar Store Easter craft gets its name because all of the supplies can easily be purchased at your local Dollar Store. (We found these at Dollar Tree.) That also means that it is a very inexpensive craft to put together. It's fun for your family at home, a classroom or as a party activity for springtime parties. If you want to save a trip to the store, you can also order all the supplies from Amazon. Check out our links below:
In our example we used a hot glue gun to create, but if you’re making these with kids we do NOT recommend hot glue, but instead recommend using glue dots or regular craft glue.
Let's get started making our craft! You'll first need to gather a few simple supplies:

- Glitter Easter-themed foam craft shapes
- Wooden dowels
- Glitter ribbon in Easter colors
- Hot glue gun
- Craft paint
Step 1: Paint your wooden dowels in Easter pastel colors using any craft paint you have on hand. The Dollar Store often carries paint sets or individual containers of craft paint as well.
Step 2: Once your wooden dowels are dry, glue each one to the back of a glitter Easter-themed foam craft shape.
Step 3: Cut some Easter colored glitter ribbons from the Dollar Store to various lengths.
Step 4: Glue the cut strips of ribbon to the back of the craft foam shapes on the wooden dowels.
And there you have it! Can't you just see the kiddos waving these around on Easter? I love how festive and fun they are!
