The humble popsicle stick is, like many other things, an incredibly versatile item which you can use in all sorts of cool and interesting projects. This is actually not the first time we’re mentioning this so you can go back and check out some of the previous popsicle stick crafts if you want to. Today we’re sharing a few more ideas with you and we hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as we do.
For this first project, you’re going to need a lot of popsicle sticks because what you need to do is glue a bunch of them together in order to make a hexagon-shaped shelf which you can then display on a wall. It would obviously be a decorative shelf but you can still place some lightweight items on it. If you’re interested in the idea, check out diys for more details.
You can also use popsicle sticks to make a cute little frame for a small picture. It’s really simple and all you need is some glue (a hot glue gun would be excellent), paint in whatever colors you prefer, a paintbrush, scissors, a hinge clip, a few popsicle sticks and a photo. All the details of the project can be found on diys.
Popsicle sticks can also be used to make some more complicated things such as a lovely jewelry box for example. You can customize the box in all sorts of cute ways. For example, you can paint the sticks in different colors and they alternate these colors to create a nice pattern. You can also add rhinestones, ribbons and other decorations. If you want to find out how to craft the jewelry box, head over to diys.

You can glue a bunch of them on the outside of the can to you cover it all up and then wrap some twine around it as well for some added texture. The idea comes from cutesycrafts.
