In this tutorial I’ll show you how to make your own wooden hair stick with twigs! Twig hairsticks are so easy and fast to make – and they cost practically nothing. They’re also a wonderful DIY gift.
- fresh twigs, such as apple tree twigs
- pruning shears
- pencil sharpener
- oil or wax, such as jojoba oil
Prune some apple tree twigs and peel off the bark.
Cut the twigs using a hair stick as measure.
Sharpen one end of the twig hair sticks with a pencil sharpener.
Round the other end, also with the pencil sharpener.
Smooth the wood with sandpaper.
I carved a small notch at the end of one hair stick so I can later add a flower or tassel with a piece of wire.
Let the hair sticks dry for some days, then oil them – I used jojoba oil. Let the twigs soak up the oil for some hours.
And your twig hair sticks are finished!
I used a DIY Indian beaded tassel to decorate one of the hair sticks.
