32 SEPTEMBER.2015 USAHOCKEYMAGAZINE.COM Do-It-Yourselfers Transform Old And Broken Sticks Into Hockey Handicrafts TREASURES BY TRISH BRADLE TRASHY S ummer is over and it's just about time for the puck to drop on another hockey season. If you're looking to get rid of those old and broken hockey sticks that are taking up space in your garage, here are a few ideas for fun fall projects to turn those eye sores into eye-popping works of hockey art. F r o m c u r t a i n r o d s t o c o f - fee tables, lounge chairs to pic- ture frames, here are just a few of the creations submitted by crafty hockey do-it-yourselvers who have turned trash into unique treasures that show off their passion for hock- ey and handicrafts. "I started this project with a simple idea of a mailbox in the front of my house to let people know what kind of person lives here. I recently moved into a new house and put the mailbox up and last week someone stole it, post and all. I am a little disappointed, but I can understand why someone would want to take it. It is really unique." Ben McTamney Glenside, Pa. "My husband, Mike, is actually the one that built the towel holder. He found a similar idea on Pinterest and decided that since we have a hockey-themed basement he could do something like it. He took one of the old sticks we have around the house and attached hooks to it. He then attached hockey pucks as spacers between the wall and screwed the stick into the pucks." Traci Wald Bismark, N.D. "This was a Father's Day gift to Nick Minas, a great youth hockey coach and dad." Jackie Minas Cary, N.C.
