Upcycled Back Scratcher Supplies:
- Wood Paint Stir Stick or Ruler
- Drill (optional)
- Craft Paint
- Alphabet Stickers (optional)
- 2 Recycled Watter Bottle Plastic Caps (or from an orange juice carton)
Step 1: Optional
If you want to hang your back scratcher when it’s finished, drill a small hole in the lower part of the handle. (When you’re all done with the project, add a ribbon through the hole)
Step 2: Paint the handle
I used acrylic paint, masking tape and alphabet stickers to decoratively paint the handle.
Glue the plastic caps to the top end of the paint stirrer (Opposite end from the drill hole). Use Gorilla glue or Krazy glue to be sure it attaches securely. You may need to roughen up the plastic caps to get the glue to work optimally.
I added pictures of my kids to the inside of the caps. If you do this, be sure to position the pictures so they are upside-right when the scratcher is hanging.
