Finding out you'll need crutches for an extended period of time is usually not a festive occasion. Cheer yourself up by personalising them with images or colours you enjoy. Turn the decorating project into a family event or invite a couple of your friends over to help decorate your crutches if you want an excuse for some company.

  1. 1

    Stick your favourite stickers all over the crutches. For example, if you like butterflies, cover your crutches with butterfly stickers. If you're a skater, use stickers that show off your favourite brands. Bumper stickers, band stickers or any other kind of stickers can become fast and easy decorations for your crutches.

  2. 2

    Wrap coloured tape around the crutches for a striped look. Use as many colours as you want or choose a single colour.

  3. 3

    Plug in your hot glue gun and glue faux gemstones, beads or seashells to your crutches. Create a pattern or glue them on randomly, depending on your tastes.

  4. 4

    Tie ribbons to the crutches or use hot glue to hold the ribbons in place. Choose a single colour, patterned ribbon or mix it up with a bunch of different colours.

  5. 5

    Draw on your crutches with permanent markers. Use different colours or a single colour and draw shapes you like, such as swirls, polka dots, stripes, hearts, stars. You also could ask your friends to autograph the crutches as they would a cast.
