But why do we celebrate Valentine's Day in the first place? Well, the tale of Valentine's Day traces back to ancient Rome, where a festival called Lupercalia was celebrated in mid-February. It was a time to honor the god of fertility and marked the beginning of spring. Over time, this festival transformed into a celebration of love and affection.

Step 4: Attach Hearts to Dowels

Once the hearts are beautifully decorated and dry, use tape or hot glue to attach them to the top of the wooden dowels. Ensure a secure bond, allowing the wands to withstand playful gestures.

Warning: If you choose to use hot glue, and adult has to be the one completing this step. Hot glue is dangerous for children.

Step 5: Add Ribbon

The ribbon adds an extra element to the wands making them stand out. The key is using several different colors, shapes and widths of ribbon. Cut ribbons into approximately 20-inch lengths and tie them into knots around the wooden dowel. These wands will now flutter and dance as the wand is waved, adding an extra element of charm.
