Well I started with a regular wooden stick I had at home. Then I wrapped it all in alluminum foil nd coated it with white glue. I took a multi colored glass orb and put it on the top of the staff and made some alluminium foil strips and just layed on top for extre support before coating it with hot glue to get the three D effect. Pretty simple and it turned out working pretty well too. It doesn't break too easily either.
