Pinterest Popsicle Sticks

Inspired by Pinterest.
Hello!

Who knew that playing with popsicle sticks could be so fun?! (Other than the multiple glue gun burns, that is). As part of our crafty weekend last weekend, my sister, my girls and I made these (and more!) snowflakes and tree. Yes, popsicle sticks are generally for kids, but these were so fun! I wouldn't let the kids use the glue gun because it's just too stinkin' hot, so they used regular white glue, which did not work as well due to the drying time. We used a canning jar lid for the center of the snowflakes and painted the entire thing - both sides and then sprinkled with glitter while the paint was still wet. When I said I was ready for Christmas, I wasn't kidding! I'm baking up all the pumpkins in the house just to move on from the fall decorations and it's not even Halloween yet!

The next step for the popsicle stick tree is to make little boxes and hang them with ribbon... click through to the link below the  pic to see what I'm talking about.

We also made popsicle stick bracelets by boiling the jumbo sticks in water for an hour and then bending them and shoving them into jars. We let them dry overnight and then painted them the next day. I can't find them to take pics, though!! Here's where we got the idea.

Have a good day! I'm sure I'll be back in awhile with a recipe or two.
