In bowl, beat water with meringue powder until foamy, about 1 minute; beat in icing sugar until stiff and glossy, about 2 minutes. Add more water, 1/4 tsp at a time, to thin, or more icing sugar, 1 tsp at a time, to thicken, if necessary, until desired consistency. 

Spoon icing into piping bag; using scissors, cut 1/4-inch hole in tip.

Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper; arrange wooden skewers, 2 inches apart, on prepared pans. Pipe icing onto skewers in zigzag pattern; top with sprinkles or dragées (if using). Let stand for 6 to 8 hours.
