February 2011 we made these Columbus cub scout neckerchief slides because Columbus had lots of perseverance to make it to America. It was a lot of hard work and took many years. I found these at Oriental Trading. They were on clearance and were a craft kit to make pencil toppers, but worked great as neckerchief slides. We used hot glue to glue the kit together and put the backs on. It cost $1.99 to make 12 of them, but I got to keep the pencils, so that made them super cheap.
The kit came with a red pipe cleaner, so I had everyone use that for the back even though I usually use PVC pipe.
