Back this week with more easy crafts that you can do while hanging out at home! This week I have a mix of crafts for kids and adults! Anddd we’re using popsicle sticks for all of our crafts this week! I thought it was a good option because a lot of people have them in their crafting supplies already and, if not, they’re super cheap and easy to get!
As with last week’s crafts, I have a video below walking you through all the steps and then below that there’s a quick rundown of supplies/instructions for each project.
- craft sticks
- contact paper (link is the closest I could find to the one I used)
- embroidery floss
Wrap contact paper tightly around craft stick. (Add glue beforehand if needed.) Trim down round edges. Add embroidery floss tassels.
Plant & Herb Markers
Paint ends of craft sticks in varying shades of green. (You can use wash tape to create a cleaner line if you want.) Paint on the name of the plants/herbs you’re planting.
Paint ends of craft sticks in varying colors. (You can use wash tape to create a cleaner line if you want.) Add to jar. Each day take one out and write something you are thankful for.
Paint ends of craft sticks in varying colors. (You can use wash tape to create a cleaner line if you want.) Lay out pattern that you like. Hot glue to cardstock. Cut excess cardstock from around the sticks. Use a command strip to hang up.
