How to make the Greek Paddle
Making your Greek Paddle as a new member is a fun and exciting part of the tradition of being in a Greek organization. You will can get your own pre cut shape, or you can cut it on your own. It makes a nice wall decoration for your big brother or big sister.
Firstly you must get to know your big brother or sister. Get to know what they like, get to know who they are as a person, get to know any inside jokes you or others may have. Think about what they are involved in. They may be part of Student Leader organizations, chapter executive board positions, they may have a hobby, or they may just have something that stands out about them that you can use to embellish your paddle.
Step 1– Make a list of words, phrases, likes, dislikes, hobbies, or anything else you can think of about your big brother or big sister.
Step 2– Go on a search engine and scan through images of the words you’ve written down. Once you have your list, your idea Inflatable paddle board may stand out. You can either make a traditional shaped paddle, or you can cut your own shape. I made a margarita glass for my big brother.
Step 3– Buy your paddle or cut your own. There are a number of online stores that can offer great deals and creativity to your paddle.
Step 4– Pick the letters and symbols for the paddle/plaque. Typically you put your name, your big sister or brother’s name, crest, chapter letters, greek organization, inside jokes, etc.
Step 5– Decorate! Pick your school’s colors, your greek organization’s colors, or colors that would make your paddle look nice. To glue on your letters, I would recommend any super glue. Wood glue works well too, but it takes a long time to dry. The right super glue is the gel kind, and it should dry within seconds. You can find this at any department store.
Greek life is a fun and exciting, and your big brother or big sister would like a nicely, thoughtfully decorated paddle or plaque to commemorate your experience as a new member and your new member process. Take time and decorate the paddle nicely.
