Need something to hold while wearing clip-in dreads? You can buy this pile of sticks from Free People for $28, or you could make them yourself in three easy steps. DIY might be the safe route since as the site informs us, it's down to the "last one in stock."
Step One: Purchase foil or string or a thing you can wrap around another thing.
Step Two: Locate nature.
Step Three: Make it.
Congrats, you did it.
