With the kids at home more, aren’t we all looking for more and more craft ideas to keep them busy and occupied? Today’s project is perfect for kids and toddlers. And I love this project because not only is it easy and quick to make- it looks cute and is reusable as well!
Making stuff with popsicle sticks has always been fun for me and today I will walk you through the steps to make a photo frame that will hold a 4 by 6 photograph vertically.
To begin, line up 8 popsicle sticks one atop another as seen below. Adhere 3 sticks perpendicular to them to form a base of sorts. I used hot glue to adhere these sticks, but a good carpenter’s wood glue would work well too.
That was the back of the frame. Once the glue dries, flip it over and place it with the front up. Now, place a 4 by 6 photograph in the center. We are going to use this as a guide to know where we need the next two pillars. Now place a stick on top of the photo, half overlapping the photo edge. Place the stick- do not adhere anything yet. Using a pencil make a small line to mark where the popsicle stick needs to be.
Now run adhesive along the outer edge of the stick only and adhere onto the frame (remove the 4 by 6 photo)
Do the same to form the opposite edge pillar. After adhering both pillars down, make sure that the photo is able to slide in and out easily. This is pretty important, otherwise the photo will not have anywhere to go.
The rest of the frame is pretty easy now. Adhere two sticks horizontally, at the top and the bottom.
To make the frame stand, we need to provide it with some kind of support. For this, adhere three sticks together to form a tiny wall of sorts. Now run adhesive along the wall and adhere it onto the base of the frame as seen here.
Similarly, adhere another tiny wall of 3 sticks to the back of the frame. This will make the frame steady and will help it stand upright.
Now add a photo, by sliding it between those two sticks that you didn’t adhere down completely. The photo should slide in and out pretty easily.
In case you get confused as to which is the right side and wrong side of the frame, the back has three vertical pillars and front has only two.
And it’s done! At this point, you can leave it as it is, or decorate it with some embellishments.
