Happy Sunday, all!
I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, the summer was full of all kinds of cold treats but the most popular definitely came on the end of a stick: popsicles. Now that it’s getting cooler out, we can make the switch to caramel apples and other fall goodies but what about all the popsicle sticks from the previous season? Should they just be tossed out? Of course not!* There are much better things to be done with them, especially when they provide hours of fun for the kiddos in your life. We can add a further element of fun by making them seasonally appropriate.
For instance, with some paint, glue, and pipe cleaners, you could make these pumpkin door hangers to greet your guests:
Or if you have some leftover yarn and some spider rings, you can creep them out with some fantastic spider webs:
If you only have some paint and popsicle sticks, that’s still ok! Easy monster sticks are just some paint away:
Of course, if you and the little ones want to build an entire village of cool Halloween stick crafts, you are going to need a haunted house to complete the look:
Have fun making your own stick creations!
*Please note that if you either didn’t think to save popsicle sticks or are grossed out by the idea of using some that have had little mouths all over them, there are always packs of stick to be found at your local craft store.
