Hey! Today on Camp Dolliwatha I’m going to show you how to make a hiking stick!You will need:
- Different colored paints
- A straight branch
- glitter (optional)
(You don’t actually need a hot glue gun or ribbon I just thought I was going to add something else to the tutorial, but I didn’t so just ignore those)
First I used a knife to cut off the outside bark, though you don’t really need to do that, but if you do make sure to get an adult to help you. And then I painted over it with one color. (Keep in mind this color will only be partially visible in the end)
Next after the stick was dry I cut some tape in half and wrapped it around the stick in a patterned order.
Then after I had gone all the way down the stick with tape I painted over it again with a different color.
Next I cut some tape in a cool pattern and wrapped it around the stick, but you could stay with just stripes.
Then I painted it with a final layer of purple paint and glitter. But the glitter is optional.
Finally after everything had dried, I peeled off all the tape and then it was done!
Now you have a fun and colorful walking stick for hiking!
P.S If you made this craft, email Loren up to three pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’ll include your photo(s) in the weekly Camp Dolliwatha recap post on Saturday!
