Day 17: Popsicles in the Winter

Happy Saturday! These fun popsicle sleds are the perfect ornament, decoration, or present tie on! Enjoy!


Supplies:

  • popsicle {craft} sticks {2 regular sized and 5 small per sled}
  • wood glue
  • wood stain
  • paint
  • twine
  • glue dots
  • embellishments if desired {I used a couple of jingle bells, some faux flocked greenery, and baker’s twine}

How to:

  • Glue 4 of the small craft sticks together staggering the end stick on each side slightly lower.  I found the easiest way to apply the glue for this project was to squirt some glue out onto a paper plate and then use a large toothpick or skewer to apply the glue along the edges.  Allow to dry.
  • Paint the small craft sticks whatever color you would like.  Allow to dry.
  • Stain the regular sized craft sticks using a rag.
  • Glue on the stained sled runners to the smaller popsicle sticks.  Again this is much easier to do if you use a skewer or large toothpick to apply the glue.
  • Glue on the cross stick to the front of the sled.
  • Add whatever embellishments you would like.  I took a few little sprigs of faux greenery, wrapped them in baker’s twine, and then threaded on a couple of small jingle bells.  I then just tied the baker’s twine around the cross bar.
  • Cut some regular twine to your desired length and attach to the underside of the cross bar using glue dots.  If you don’t have glue dots, you can use regular craft glue but, honestly, those glue dots are so much easier and way less messy.
