Blinging up some sticks

Postby BonnGayle » Sat Jul 20, 2013 8:09 pm

So i've come to the conclusio that most walking saticks are dull or floral so Ive come about the idea that I might bling up some black ones myself , has anyone attempted this themselves and might give me some tips ?

Hi there
My friend gave me a piece of beautiful wood originally for me to make a staff with, I now use it instead of a stick, it has leather wrapped around in places to make it comfy and my friends have given me things to hang on it, do far I have some beautiful pheasant feathers and foot, and a shaman rattle, it's looking very Medicean woman lol

Yes.... I have added different gems and crystals bought at craft stores or from recycled vintage jewellry. Just hot glue them on.

....You can also use coloured / printed ribbon or material and just hodge podge it on. Then add a coat of shellac or varathane to seal it from the elements

....I did one for a friend who was going to the beach for her holidays. I glued small shells all over it. I stopped about 4 inches from the bottom and the top

....Even something as simple as a bow near the top or an artificial flower, either cloth or plastic, glued near the top. I prefer cloth.

It is amazing how many ideas you can come up with if you sit back with a cuppa.
