Funky Hair Chopsticks

Funky Hair Chopsticks.

by craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

Plain chop sticks
Assorted beads
Big glass bead
Hand saw Optional paint
Wire
Sand paper Glue

Instructions

Take the chop sticks that you can get at you local chinese food store and prepare them byh either painting them your desired color or by cutting them down smaller if you have short hair.

If you are cutting down the chopsticks use some sandpaper to smooth over the edges.

Once the chopsticks are ready take the wire and put an drop of glue on the chop stick now wrap the wire around it from the top downwards.

Thread your beads onto the wire, I used beads that were all the same size , but you could use seed beads, crystals or whatever you can get your hands on.

Continue to wrap the wire around the top of the chopstick placing your beads into position as you wrap. Make sure your wire is nice and tight.

Don’t wrap too far down or the wire and beads will get caught in your hair, a few inches is enough.

On the picture you can see I finished off my wrapping my chopstick with some polka dot ribbon. I did this by applying craft glue to the back of the ribbon and then wrapping it tightly down the chopstick. Secure the ends with a dab of glue.

Repeat the same process for the second one.
