Make Your Injury a Work of Art

Attention all fashionistas: Your broken leg/torn Achilles/fractured foot no longer has to mean losing your street-style cred!

The typical cast decoration is a bunch of unreadable signatures/well wishes . . . we say you friends can save that for a get well card. Be anything but average, and turn that cumbersome cast into a work of art! We know being restrained in a cast and crutches is frustrating, but turn that extra down time into a chance to flex your creative muscles (instead of your leg muscles) with these fun and creative ideas for cast decoration.


WIPE, or in this case,WHITE OUT THE PAIN OF THAT LOWER LEG INJURY

If you chose a brightly colored cast, used white paint (or even white-out) to paint a cool graphic design all over. If art has never been your strong point, stick to big, bold, and easy to replicate patterns like stars or hearts.


TORN ACHILLES? BROKEN ANKLE? DON’T LET YOUR INJURY TAKE THE SPARKLE OUT OF YOUR EYE

Break out that be-jeweler. Turn your cast into some seriously blinding bling: all you need is some crazy glue and a WHOLE lot of rhinestones!


TAKE YOUR CRUTCH FRUSTRATION OUT THE ARTISTIC WAY, THE END RESULT WILL MUCH MORE STYLISH

Jackson Pollock pioneered the “splatter art” style – take a cue from his book and make your cast into a museum-worthy work of art. Pick your colors, dip your brush, and fling it through the air.

*Warning: this WILL get on your skin and the surrounding area, so wear goggles, use skin-safe paint, and COMPLETELY cover your work area with newspaper, or go outside where the paint can’t do any damage!


WE KNOW CRUTCHES ARE FRUSTRATING, SO STICK IT TO YOUR CAST AND SHOW THE WORLD YOUR PERSONALITY

Stickers! Perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to get near a paintbrush, and your options are endless!


USING CRUTCHES IS A BUILT IN EXCUSE TO BE LAZY (it’s not like you can do anything on your crutches anyway!)
