Walking Stick Grip
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Personalize a favorite walking stick with a braided grip and wrist strap that are as comfortable as an old T-shirt.

What you'll need

  • Old T-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Wooden beads
  • Walking stick

How to make it

  1. Tear or cut an old T-shirt into 1-inch-wide strips. Tie the strips end to end to create three strips, roughly 2 yards long.

  2. Thread a bead (or two or three) onto the end of each strip and tie a knot in the strip to hold the bead in place.

  3. Tie all three strips together about 4 inches from the beads. Braid the strips.

  4. Make a wrist strap with the end closest to the beads by tying off a loop big enough for a hand to fit through.

  5. Hold the loop against the walking stick and thread the other end of the braid through the middle of the loop. Pull tight.

  6. Tightly wrap the rest of the braid around the top 6 inches or so of the walking stick to form a grip. Tie off the braid by looping the end through the last few wraps.
