Eco-Activity #14: Super stick door signs

12

Has your family been eating lots of popsicles this summer? We sure have! Since our leftover popsicle sticks started to pile up, we’ve come up with a great way to upcycle them AND make a useful craft! Using those, or even small sticks you’ve gathered from outside, you can make a fun door hanger to welcome guests to your humble abode, or keep others out during some much-needed alone time in your room!

For this craft, you’ll need:

  • Twigs or popsicle sticks/wooden craft sticks
  • Paint
  • Glue (white craft glue should do the trick, but if you decide to use hot glue just be extra careful!)
  • String
  • Decorations: old puzzle pieces, pom-poms, leaves, pebbles

How to:

  1. Cut a piece of string about 30cm long.
  2. Tie the ends of your string to both ends of your stick, creating a loop.
  3. Glue more sticks to the one you looped, making a square. Once the glue has dried, flip the whole thing over so you can secure the back with another craft stick across the bottom half.
  4. Once fully dry, decorate your door hanger and personalize it with a message for anyone looking to visit!
  5. Share a picture of you with your completed door hanger. Tag us along with the hashtag #SummerEcoActivity: Don’t forget to follow our page & like the official launch post to qualify for a mystery prize!
