DIY Boy’s Animal Painted Wooden Box From Popsicle Sticks


This month of summer season is full of my diy popsicle sticks, you must find it a lot during this hot summer holiday. Unlike other popsicle stick craft, I make it into a wooden panel, so you can be more creative with it but got the look of wooden panel. It’s like finding a new way to make a Lego that you can use to build anything you like. So, after I made a coaster, a painted flower-pot holder, a decorated wall hanger from popsicle stick; this time I made a boy’s wooden box with painted animal from popsicle sticks.

  1. Apply glue (for wood) evenly along the popsicle stick surface. Glue the popsicle sticks to each other one by one. Watch for the same length and width.
