This instructable shows how to make a set of flower sticks from common household items. A great way for anyone who wants to pick up this form of juggling quickly and cheaply.
With all the materials and tools at hand, this set of flower sticks would take only half an hour or so to make.
Step 1: Tools and materials
- 1 roll of PVC anti slip mat
Available from hardware stores, or household goods stores. These are the thin, flexible sort sold in rolls (about 30 cm wide and 1-1.5 m long), and can be cut with scissors.
- 3 wooden sticks
At least 60 cm long. Diameter can be anywhere between 8 mm and 10 mm. Here, bamboo gardening support sticks are used, but any kind of wooden dowel can be used instead.
- handful of nuts and washers
The inner diameter must be large enough for it to fit snugly onto the ends of the wooden sticks.
Total material cost is less than USD$10.
- wood saw
- glue gun
