Happy Sticks

Happy Sticks
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kids can make these happy sticks (using common household materials) as a way to celebrate a special event, special holiday or  just because.

By Jantje Blokhuis-Mulder [Jantje is one of the founders of]

What You Need:

Simply gather some craft sticks, magic markers, feathers, chenille stems (pipe cleaners), glitzy holiday garlands and tape.

What You Do:

Decorate the craft sticks with magic markers.

After that, begin attaching items to the craft sticks using tape.

Chenille stems are great because you can twist them right onto the sticks.

The garlands can be twisted and tied to the sticks and the feathers can be secured in place with tape.

Make happy sticks!
