I did a craft stick stationery holder with my student earlier this year. Refer to it here. Back then my boy was too young to make that.
Today, he is ready to make his own craft stick stationery holder and requested for a rainbow theme 😀
Rainbow craft stick stationery holder
Paint the craft sticks with your favourite colours
Let them dry
Paste the toilet paper roll onto a piece of hard board and cut
Spread glue all over
Stick the craft sticks all around the toilet paper roll
Let it dry and decorate as you wish
I tied ribbon around it to hold the craft sticks together better 🙂

Craft sticks can be used to make beautiful decorative items. Today, let’s make an insect garden 🙂
Craft Stick Insect Garden
– You’ll need 8 craft sticks.
– Arrange them as shown above and glue to keep them in place.
Refer here for the ladybug instructions and here for the bee instructions.
– Cut some grass out of green felt and paste them all onto the craft sticks.
– Your masterpiece will definitely cheer up any dull looking wall 🙂
We need to eat a lot of popsicles to do this 😀
Craft stick stationery holder
Get a toilet paper roll tube, the bigger the better.
Draw a circle on a hardboard box, cut and paste.
Spread some glue
Put an elastic band in the middle and insert the craft sticks.
The band is to hold the sticks in place.
Glue the craft stick all around the toilet paper roll tube.
Tie a string around it.
And you are done. You may also add some little bugs as deco.
Let’s make a Christmas tree out of craft sticks today 😀
Craft stick Christmas tree
Glue 3 craft sticks to form a triangle. Let dry.
Paint it green. Once dried, decorate as you wish.
Tie a silver / golden thread if you wish to hang it as a Christmas tree ornament.
Remember the abstract art we did previously? If you don’t, check it out here.
We are going to make a lantern out of that art piece today.
Craft Stick Lantern
Paste 4 craft sticks to form a square on the art piece
Paste more sticks until you get 4 squares
Cut and paste the end together. Cover the bottom and stick a tea light in the middle.
I made another using Panda as the motive and I find it really cool 😀
Using crayons, I drew a couple of pandas on a tracing paper
Like this 🙂
Cover it with another tracing paper
Iron. Again, please be careful while handling hot iron. Make sure the little ones are no where nearby.
Cut and glue together
We can make an interesting bee bookmark using a craft stick.
Craft stick bee bookmark
– Draw a circle on a yellow craft foam and cut
– Draw and cut another circle out of a black craft foam this time
– Paint a craft stick yellow
– Cut the black circle into half, paste as wings.
– Cut some tiny strips out of black craft foams and paste on the bee.
– Paste the craft stick at the back.
Your cute craft stick bee bookmark is all done 🙂
A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a cool storage box 🙂
Milton of Our Little Corners must have eaten ‘millions’ of popsicles for this project 😀 You may use craft sticks instead if you can’t get yourself to digest a million popsicles 😛
I’ll let the pictures do all the ‘talking’ here as he has definitely put in a lot of effort in this project! Words just can’t describe them 😀
So lovely, I likey 😀
Thank you Milton 🙂
