Paint the wooden dowel or paper towel roll with paint in your team's colors Then apply a second coat Decorate the stick creatively - you can add glitter, sequins, all the squad members' signatures or a caricature of your team's mascot Use duct tape to seal one end Fill the stick half-full with sand, bells or beads. This will add heft to the stick and also give it a noise-making quality. Seal the other side of the spirit stick. Paint the ends of the stick or decorate them.
Gifts for cheerleaders - cute way to remember the year! Wooden letter painted with glitter spray paint, pennant with a little bling and their name (or mascot/school). Add pics for perfect banquet gifts! Can use Modge Podge to coat the entire thing to seal it all in.
