I guess today is just going to be exercised in being extra. Nowadays, people hold an incredible amount of power. Even if you live in a country that is undemocratic and you don't play a large role in the lawmaking process, the technology still allows people who wield a lot of influence. It makes it easier for people to group up and push for causes they believe in. News can travel much faster in the modern day through technology, so its also much easier to knowledgeable of the things going on. If there is enough push for something, there is bound to be some kind of response. We are the authors of our own lives, the rulers of our destinies.
So, like, where are our scepters?
Scepters are usually used in ceremonies by sovereign rulers as displays of their sovereignty. Back in the day, they were the sort of super serious item you would never parody or copy, but as long as you don't go around pretending like you don't have literal royal authority, I don't see why we can't carry them around like purses. So if feel like joining me in being a little extra today, keep reading to figure out how you can make your very own scepter.
Start off with a baton. It can be a serious gymnastic baton or a child's toy. I'd go with the toy because it's lighter and a bit easier to work with. Pick some heavy duty fabric, like the kind of stuff you'd make curtains out of. Using a stapler, fold the fabric around the baton like a card and staple it close to the actual baton body. Get some scissors and cut even spaces next to the stables and string some ribbon through them. You can tie the bow however you want.
There are a multitude of things you can do with the baton head. I suggest heading over to Pinterest and painting on some sick decals. Or you could help out your local community, Google local artists and have one of them paint on it. Whatever you decide, you'll end up with a pretty unorthodox accessory.
