Picture Frames

Picture Frames You may have seen this idea before, but I can’t believe I never thought of making picture frames with popsicle sticks!

You could also use them to display pictures with the Easter Bunny or Santa! Don’t forget to decorate them with colorful paint and stickers.

Popsicle sticks are a great material for kids to use in their crafting projects. Not only are they inexpensive and easy to find, but they are also incredibly versatile. From jewelry to furniture, there are countless ways to use popsicle sticks in your next DIY project.

One of the most popular popsicle stick crafts for kids is a popsicle stick chandelier. This craft is perfect for sprucing up any room in your house, and it’s simple enough for even the youngest crafters to make. All you need is some popsicle sticks, a hot glue gun, and a few other materials such as ribbon and paint.

To make a popsicle stick chandelier, you’ll first need to cut the sticks to the desired length. Then, arrange them in a circle and use hot glue to secure them together. Once the frame is complete, you can add decorations such as ribbon, paint, and glitter. Finally, attach a string of lights to the center of the chandelier and hang it up.
