How to make popsicle postcards


  • Foam pool noodle (any color)

  • Serrated knife
  • Scissors or X-Acto knife


Popsicle postcard


Using a serrated knife, cut your foam pool noodle into 6-inch segments.

Step 1 cut foam noodle


Stand each segment upright and cut off the outer rounded edges, discarding the hollow center piece.

Step 2 cut in thirds


Cut quarter-inch strips off one side of each foam piece.
(These cut sides will align to form the “twin pop.”)

Step 3 cut 1/4 off one edge


With your knife, carve and round off the tips to look like a popsicle.

Place the foam shapes together on a piece of cardboard or decorative card stock and trace around them. Cut out the shape with scissors or an X-Acto knife.

Step 5 round off tops


Using a hot-melt glue gun, attach the sticks to the cardboard postcard.
Add more hot glue around the outer edge of the postcard and down the center.

Step 6 glue sticks to cardboard


Attach the foam popsicle twins to the postcard and hold in place until secure.

Step 7 glue foam to postcard


Write your message and address on the other side,
saving room for approximately $2.10 in postage stamps.
(Sizes may vary, so it’s best to have them weighed at the post office for the correct parcel price.)
