How do you make a Valentine’s Kids Craft Popsicle Stick Frame?
- Glue 8 popsicle sticks together with all purpose kid friendly glue, allow to dry.
- Dip the Q-Tips into the paint and place some dots along the popsicle sticks, create different patterns and designs, set aside to dry.
- Cut a heart out of card stock for a picture frame back. Glue this onto the painted popsicle stick frame.
- Add a picture or drawing!
See the detailed tutorial below!
Firstly, arrange the popsicle sticks into a square, with the horizontal sticks sitting on tope of the vertical ones. Add the other four so there are two popsicle sticks on each side (see picture)
Secondly, glue the sticks into place and set them aside to dry
Once the glue has dried, paint the popsicle sticks using the Q-Tips. Dip one end of the Q-Tip into the paint and place dots around the frame. It’s always fun to see what design each child creates.
While the popsicle stick frame is drying, cut a heart out of card stock. Once the paint has dried, glue it to the card stock heart to create a frame “backing” to hold the photo or drawing.
Lastly, add a photo or drawing!!
