Popsicle stick photo frame

Do you have a photo of yourself with mum that you would like to make even more special? Pop it in a picture frame that you have made all by yourself – she will love it!

What you need:

  • 4 popsicle sticks
  • 4 pegs
  • PVA glue
  • ribbon
  • a picture
  • cardboard
  • sticky tape
  • embellishments – stickers, shells, beads, sequins (optional)
  • scissors

Number of players:


Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2. Paint your popsicle sticks in any design or colour mum will love and let them dry.

Step 3. Lay down 2 popsicle sticks and pop a dab of glue to the top and the bottom of each stick.

Step 4. Lay 2 more popsicle sticks across the top and the bottom of the frame to form a square. Attach your pegs to hold in place and leave to dry.

Step 5. Cut your cardboard to fit on the back of the frame. This should be about 11.5cm square.

Step 6. Tape your picture on to the cardboard.

Step 7. Lay it face down on the square you have made. Tape it on to secure it.

Step 8. Grab your ribbon and tie a bow in the centre of it leaving 2 long ends – you may need Dad's help for this bit.

Step 9. Tape the ends to the cardboard on the back and your frame is ready to hang.
