I was inspired to make my own hairsticks by olive_juice http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311643.0  Grin Grin

I made mine from wooden skewers.  I have tried sanding sticks, but have had bad luck and lots of snapped sticks.  I find that basic wooden skewers are stronger and work the best.

I snap the skewer off at the length I want, sanded and added glue to the end to attach some inexpensive wooden beads.

Here's the first pair, they are my favorites!


Here they are in the hair ....


Then I made some big chunky blue ones



I'm not as fond of these ones ....



Cost was well under a dollar for both pairs.

c&c wellcome

Once I had the beads, it took about ten minutes.
