I have taken chop sticks and cut a 2-3 portion off to make them more useable size as well as using purchased wooden hairsticks. If I use chopstick I do sand the end so that it is smooth and I usually drill a hole across the width and do peyote around the end for about an inch or so and anchor that in the hole that I drilled. I also will string several sets of matching beads from the end, as dangles. Using different beads in matching colors. These dangles make the hairstick more of a piece of jewelry.
If I use a purchased hairstick, they are normally drilled at the end so that an eye pin can be glued into the hole and I again dangle about 3 (and sometimes more) head pins with coordinating beads. Sometimes I will place a larger matching bead at the end of the hairstick before the dangles for a bit more color. See the picture above.
These hairsticks are fairly fast and easy to make and for anyone with long hair they are an extra ornament/jewelry to be worn.
NOTE: when glueing an eye pin in the hole DO NOT use E-6000 as it is pliable and eye pin will not be secure. It is best to use a firm bonding glue.
