Make an Easy Popsicle Craft with Yarn
To make our Yarn Wrapped Popsicle Craft you will need yarn in multiple bright colors, cardboard, craft sticks, scissors, and hot glue.
Normally, I don’t like to use hot glue when working with kids. Hot glue is, well, hot. But you really only need the hot glue to start the yarn and keep in place. The rest is just wrapping.
Yarn Wrapped Popsicle Craft Supplies Needed
- Yarn – multiple colors
- Craft sticks – jumbo and regular
- Glue gun
Popsicle Yarn Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin with a piece of cardboard.
Draw an arc on the cardboard to your desired size.
Now, use the glue gun to secure the yarn at the top of the arc. Begin wrapping.
Continue wrapping the cardboard with yarn until covered, using your choice of colors. Finish each color by using the glue gun to glue into place.
Next, gently Insert a popsicle stick between the yarn and the carton. Use a jumbo popsicle stick for large popsicles, the regular popsicle sticks for smaller popsicles. Make sure that the craft stick is positioned in the middle of the popsicle. Then carefully glue inside. You could also glue the popsicle stick to the cardboard before wrapping with yarn.
How sweet, right?! Make small popsicles and large popsicles, too. A deliciously simple summer craft!
