"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Materials List

  • Cardboard
  • Dowel Rod
  • Hot Gun & Glue
  • Marabou Boas - each wand uses approximately  24 inches (Feather Place H18)
  • Chandelle Boas - each wand uses approximately 24 inches (Feather Place SF40)
  • Ribbon
  • Gems, Glitter or other Embellishments


  1. Trace a circle onto a piece of cardboard, then another one around it about one inch outside of it.  This one is about 4 inches in diameter. Cut the circle out.

  2. Glue the cut out circle onto a wooden dowel. You can decorate the dowel rod anyway you’d like, paint it, glitter it, or wrap it in pretty ribbon.

  3. Glue the feather boa onto the cardboard ring using plenty of hot glue. Flip the wand over and glue more boa to the back of the circle.

  4. Tie on some matching ribbons to the base of the circle.

  5. Time to embellish! Add gems, pearls, glitter! Make your fairy wand sparkle and shine!

  6. Make a wand in every color. Experiment with the shape of the feathered top, a sphere of feathers or a star shape could be magical as well.
