Ugly Sticks and Umbrella Trees
ugly stick - a percussion musical instrument made from an old mop or broom handle with beer caps ir nail heads attached to make a jingling sound. A second stick is carved with a serrated side and is dragged along the ugly stick like a fiddle bow or is used to strike the ugle stick to make noise. There is often an old rubber boot, shoe or coffee can on the end.
