My home made Flirt Pole under $5 (pics)

So I have been doing a lot of browsing lately, been sitting around on call for work so I have time to kill. I got interested in this thing called a flirt pole. I managed to throw one together for about 4 bucks.

I started with a dowel, length of 3 feet- $.60 cents.



Then attached a 'fish eye' into the end. Pack of 10 for $.99 cents.



Next comes the rope. I got a roll of 300ft for $1.98.



Then I just used a rag out of a pack of 10 I had so that was 'free' more or less.



Put it all together and you get a nice home made flirt pole for $3.57 plus tax and an hour of time with shopping. All my supplies came from Menards.



Piper just loves this thing. I used something similar before, just a garden hose (couplers removed!) but this is easier to maneuver!

awesome! I made one using an old broom pole, yarn and a piece of fleece LOL. I'll probably make one like this, much more attractive! hahah

I also added a bit of Duck scent to the rag for added interest.

Nice! I love flirt poles, they help get rid of so much energy and all I have to do is stand there.

My flirt pole is a horse whip, a string, and one of those skinneeez dog toys that resembles a fox.

I am trying to find a furry tail thing for another one. You know the Dayy Crockett hat with the tail, where can I find just the tail part? Ha

I can totally see Titon catching that and tear the string apart, snapping the dowel rod causing splintered wood that punctures my hand, puts me in the hospital and requires major surgery.

Yes, my GS is that nuts.

Or even better, a squirrel on a rope. It flirts itself. I just go have a beer
