This is my first instructable, so bear with me.
My friend recently gave me a cane to go with my prom costume, however the cane he gave me was old beat up and most importantly, the head or handle if you prefer was completely detached. After looking for ideas into what to replace the head with I came up with the following.
Step 1: Materials
You will need the following
-Body (in my case just an old beat up cane, but I am 100% positive you can get great results just by getting a wooden dowel or other paintable rod)
-Rubber chair leg stoppers (make sure the diameter is appropriate for your body) - About $2.50 for a four pack
-Spray paint - 96 cents
-Yard light - $4
See second picture for a better view of the top of the yard light, you want one that has a solar panel and a light sensor that activates the light.
Step 2: Prep the body
You will want to give the body a good sanding with fine grit sandpaper, this helps the spray paint stick better and in my case, cleans up a lot of the scratches and nicks and such in the cane. You can't tell very well by the pictures but the cane was an ugly brownish red before I painted it.
Step 3: Spray
Using good spraying techniques (short bursts, about 12 inches, don't let it run, ect.) coat your body. Depending on the starting color of your body more coats may be needed, follow the instructions on your spray paint. When you are finished it should look something like this.
Step 4: Put the foot on it.
Using a strong glue (I used gorilla glue) Coat the bottom part of your cane and slide on one of your rubber feet.
