I really want to make ribbon wands for my guests to shake while we leave the church. Does anyone have suggestyions on where I can find cheap dowels? I know Wilton makes them, but those will get expensive fast.
If anyone has an online retailer, or somewhere in Toronto where I can buy them, it would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried DIY shops? Big ones like B&Q (I’m not sure what the overseas equivalent of that is though.)
They have long ones, which you can cut down yourself with a small handsaw – and it works out at a million times cheaper.

I got packs and packs of them at Joanns for cheap.

I got mine at Michael’s very cheap, or Hobby Lobby if there is one nearby. I’d check online too, there have got to be some on ebay, etc.

Bypass the craft stores all together; those are going to be needlessly expensive.
Get thee to a hardware store, and have them cut a long dowel into the size of your choice.
You can easily spray paint them to whatever color you want for much cheaper than Michaels, or Hobby Lobby, or wherever they jack prices up.

I get to do a lot of crafty stuff for work, and we always hit the hardware store FIRST, then the craft store. Same stuff, for a fraction of the price.
