Silicone glow stick clips using Proto Putty – Inspired by The King of Random

Well, this may have been one on our most over complicated projects, but it’s something I wanted to play with and I needed an excuse (not necessarily a good excuse).  I’ve been wanting to try Sugru (Amazon Associate link) for a long time now and never got around to buying some and when I saw this How to make Proto-Putty video I needed to give it a shot.  I didn’t necessarily make these clips because they’re a great idea, but more to see what could be done with Proto Putty.

We tend to give the kids glow sticks while at the campground and after we get inside the kids leave them everywhere.  I’ve been meaning to add hooks for them to hang by their beds for some extra light, but I decided it would be much more fun to make some overkill silicone brackets to hold them.

To get started you’ll need:

100% clear silicone #1
Cornstarch
Food coloring
Something to mix the silicone
Disposable plates or bowls
Maybe some disposable gloves

To see how we did it checkout the below video.

For a great step by step tutorial check out Grant Thompson’s How to make Proto-Putty video.  If you’re looking for an easy way to hang glowsticks you can just use a hook.
