I burned these hair sticks w/a wood burning kit I bought at Lowe's.
|Wood Burning Kit|
I practiced first on a piece of wood so I wouldn't ruin my hair sticks. I had fun w/this. I used Chinese Script of my children's names on it.

Be careful while using your burning kit. Never put it down on bare floor or touch the ends-ever. Read directions before using your kit and use it outdoors if possible. As for the ends I used a screw in loop. Can buy those at Joann's or any hardware store. I added beads on wire and one of them I put some earrings I was given.
