Popsicle Stick Easel

Popsicle Stick Easel

I have these Jumbo Craft Sticks..aka Popsicle Sticks..and I thought I could make an easel out of them...and I did :)

Here's what I did:

I got 5 Jumbo Popsicle Sticks 

I put the sticks in an easel position and then traced it with some card came out like a "Y" shape

Then I broke out the old hot glue gun and hot glued the "Y' to the sticks

I then glued the two remaining sticks together on top of one another and then glued that to the front of the easel to make the "A" shape.

I took it outside and spray painted it with my Chalkboard Paint..seriously LOVE that stuff!

And here's the finished product!  Pretty cool eh?  That's my pug Obi..isn't he adorable?!
My husband won't let me have a pig so I got the pug :)  He snorts like a pig though!

And because I used Chalkboard paint I can write a message on the easel :)

Here is a picture with just the easel
I did add a few drops of hot glue to the top of the sticks once I liked the position of the easel

This would make a fun gift for anyone...I'm going to put a pic of my boys on the easel and put "My Boys" in chalk on it.

Have a great day!


  1. So cute! This would be a fun project for the classroom, too!

  2. Yes! You could do it for Mother's/Father's Day for the kids to send home!

  3. Oooh or for "Kid of the Week" you could put a pic of the child and put their name in chalk..I don't know if you do that program but for teachers who do that would be fun!

  4. Obi is sooooo cute! (and so is your easel)

  5. Thank you for this tutorial! I have just made my own and really pleased with the results. Just added a bit piece of string to make it sturdy.

  6. You are so welcome, I'm glad you found it useful :) Thank you for letting me know you tried it and liked it :) Have a great weekend!
