Summertime means popsicles … and popsicles means it’s CRAFT TIME! Everyone knows the craft value of popsicle sticks and this easy kids craft is so much fun! Learn how to make a DIY popsicle stick picture frame quickly and easily using OOLY’s new sticker collection: STICKIVILLE. It is time to break out the glue and get crafting!
Time Duration: 30 minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
OOLY Products Needed:
- OOLY Stickiville Stickers
- Yummy Yummy Scented Twist-Up Crayons
Other Items Needed:
- Popsicle sticks
- String, magnet or picture hanging strips
Step 1: Grab your stash of popsicle sticks, your favorite printed photograph and your favorite OOLY crayons or markers and Stickiville stickers! To start, line up a handful of popsicle sticks end to end until they make a rectangle larger than your photo. Set them to the side.
Step 2: Decorate both sides of the popsicle sticks that will be used for your frame using Yummy Yummy Scented Crayons. Once decorated, line them up side by side evenly with the “front of the frame” facing down.
Step 3: Next, decorate two additional popsicle sticks that will be used on the back of the frame to hold it together. Add glue along one side.
Step 4: Take the two sticks with the glue and place them face down perpendicular and spaced evenly to hold the lined-up sticks of your “frame” together. If you plan to use a string or a magnet to hang your frame, glue this piece on at this time (or you can attach a picture hanging strip after the craft is complete). Let the glue dry for about 10-15 minutes.
Step 5: Once dry, flip over your frame and use your favorite Stickiville stickers to attach your photograph. Then decorate the margins using even more stickers! We used Ice Pops, Lucky Day and Rainbow Heart.
Alternate ending! There is no limit to the number of stickers you can use to decorate your frame. Why not create a sticker collage!
