Popsicle stick crafts and DIY chair


         My kid(5 yrs) wanted a project for his school, his topic being animals and their shelters.. I went to a fancy store , with no idea in mind as to what to do ! then I saw popsicle sticks and decided- that is it.Just a quick view of  the project

The Kennel, Stable and Shed were made with popsicle stick ,Den with POP and Coop with Pear fruit cover.

      After we finished it, my kid got hooked on to the sticks and wanted more with it.So I helped him making these wall hanging and photo frame.. the flowers on them are recycled from old flower vase and card.
Sending it to Lessology-Hanging mobile

To my surprise, he came out with great idea of key holder!!The above one is completely his own attempt!!
Sending all three to For the love of crafting- Hang it out

This week end we tried this triangular pen stand

Today's Tutorial

          We will see how to make a chair with popsicle sticks.This is not my own idea, saw a photo on the net and tried on my own.

Cut  a stick in half and paste as shown.Glue another stick on top of that..we need 2 sets like this
 Now place 6-7 sticks on the 2 legs.This would nt stand ,so support it with a box.
 After it is dried, glue 2 sticks facing top, starting from the leg
 Now, place them down and glue 4-5 sticks
After it is dry, make it stand.. Your popsicle stick stand is ready!!
