Monday Crafts: how to make a picture frame out of ice cream sticks and sand

Submitted by on August 23, 2010 – 3:36 amOne Comment


After two weeks of complete relax, eating ice cream on the beach and collecting shells we are back with a seasonal craft idea. As you all know by now we don’t regard popsicle sticks as rubbish, on the contrary we think they are great for making things. For today’s craft we made a picture frame with ice lollies, vinyl glue, sand and shells.

To make this frame you need popsicle sticks of the same length, a piece of cardboard, glue, scissors, sand and shells.

4. Cover the surface of the frame with vinyl glue and pour sand all over it; lift the frame and eliminate the excess sand

5. Decorate with shells
