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 stock..it 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!
