5 Fun Popsicle stick crafts

I started blogging in 2007 at, and more recently, at I mostly love to sew but also love to use a lot of hot glue.

Craft with sticks

Once you are done snacking on your tasty frozen freezer treats, make sure to save the sticks to whip up these fun crafts. Any one of these simple projects can be made in a single afternoon crafting session.

Craft with sticks

Earring easel

Supplies to make one easel:

  • 8 large Popsicle® or craft sticks
  • Spray paint
  • Craft felt
  • Plastic canvas
  • Hot glue and glue gun


  1. Spray paint 7 large Popsicle® sticks and let dry completely. Cut one of the painted sticks to measure 4-1/2 inches.
  2. To create the base, glue 2 sticks into a triangular shape
  3. Cut three 1-inch pieces of an unpainted stick and stack/glue each piece on top of another at the top (right-side) intersection of the 2 base sticks.
  4. Glue the trimmed stick to the top of this stack at an angle, with the cut side down, creating the base for the plastic canvas to sit upon.
  5. Separately, create a frame using the 4 remaining painted sticks, gluing at each corner where you overlap the sticks.
  6. Cut a piece of the plastic canvas to fit with a small amount of overlap, roughly 5-1/2 inches square
  7. Affix the canvas to the back of the frame with glue, securing the canvas along each side.
  8. Glue the base to the back of the canvas/frame at the two bottom corners only. (The glue will show through the canvas, so use it sparingly.)
