David and Marji are the brilliant minds behind Ashbee Design and my new favorite things ever: these magical red dancing sticks made from little more than string, a single screw eye, and sticks you can collect from your backyard.
The best thing is the two have a tutorial for making your own versions… so far you get your fill from their site, you can get crafty and make your own yard or local walking trail a little happier.
What you need
- Branches shaped like people
- 1 screw eye for each
- Spray paint — color of your choice
- Round logs for bases
- Branch clippers
- Band saw
- Drill press
- Wooden mallet
While the supplies are fairly easy to come by, the equipment necessary may not be. Either you can follow the instructions on Ashbee Design and get creating, or you can happily marvel over the sweet delicacy of the dancing sticks.
