Making Lavender wands is fun and easy, plus you end up with a pretty and great smelling decoration. To make a wand you will need:
15 Freshly cut lavender stems (About 12 inches long)
1 yard narrow ribbon
Tie the lavender stems tightly together with one end of the ribbon, just below the flower buds. One by one, bend the stems backwards down over the buds. Now weave the ribbon in and out between the stems. Shape the weave into a bud as you go. As you near the end of the buds, pull the weave tighter. When you reach the end, wrap the ribbon tightly around the stems three times and tie a knot. With the remaining ribbon make a bow.
