Chopstick Hair Ornaments
Using a small handsaw or
needle-nose pliers, cut the tops off the chopsticks so they measure about
Sharpen the pointed ends in a pencil sharpener and dull the points with a
nail file. Paint them if you'd like.
Cut a 10-inch length of wire and center it about 1 1/2 inches from the top
of the chopstick. Wrap it tightly around the stick several times, then
twist the two portions of wire together a few times. Thread beads onto the
wire, bend the ends over, and clip off the excess.
