To make a Popsicle stick picture frame, glue four Popsicle sticks together to form a square; allow them to dry completely; decorate the frame with paint, glitter and stickers; tie a string around the top stick; and glue a picture to the back. This takes about one hour to make and requires Popsicle sticks, glue, paint, glitter, stickers and string.
- Glue the sticks
Lay two Popsicle sticks parallel on a table about 4 inches apart. Put a dot of glue on each end of both sticks. Lay two more Popsicle sticks across the glue to form a square. Allow the frame to dry completely.
- Decorate the frame
Paint the frame on all sides, and allow it to dry completely. Decorate the frame with glitter and stickers. You can also use markers to write names or dates across the sticks.
- Attach the string
Cut an 8-inch length of string, ribbon or yarn to use as the hanger for the frame. Tie both ends of the string to the top stick to form a loop.
- Add the picture
Cut the picture to the size of the frame, which should be about 4 inches by 4 inches. Attach the picture to the back of the frame using a glue stick.
