  • Step 4: String 8 medium-sized beads on each pipe cleaner. Move the beads up along the pipe cleaner until they are adjacent to the centerpiece beads.

  • Step 7: You have just completed your wand's heart-shaped top. Notice that the two pipe cleaners below the beaded heart are long enough to make the handle for your wand. However they are too soft to support the weight of the beaded heart top.
