Introduction: Floss Pick Ninja Star

Unusual Uses: Bathroom Challenge

Finalist in the
Unusual Uses: Bathroom Challenge

One of the most under appreciated items that hide in my bathroom closet are floss picks. Finding a bag with a few unused picks (they only looked unused, but I was not sure...) I played around with them and created a star out of them. I only had six of them, but a bigger star can easily be made. This can be made as a nice decoration, a potential weapon, or used to create a minty air while you work. It's simple to make in a few minutes, so plenty can be made to bring new purpose to floss picks!

loved this instructable thanks for sharing

they do look really cool, what happens when you throw them ? maybe a dab of epoxy at each intersection would make it stronger.

should make a bigger one with wood and rope and then paint it or something. almost like a ninja coat of arms eh?

Ha!  It reminds me of the Glaive from "Krull".

I just looked at the pictures. Nice!

You should totally rename this for random-horrible-film-knowledge posterity!

I like how everyone likes this so far, so please vote for me in the Bathroom Challenge!

can you try to 'sharpen' the blade cuz everytime i try, the floss picks break :/

There are many types of floss picks, so your star could be made differently. I suggest try using more picks in your star if you can't get a good fit all the way. Sharpening the pick end could help to bend them more easily, so try experimenting.

Hope this helps!
