Somehow, I recently ended up becoming the proud owner of a nearby friends craft stash declutter. Why he had 763,286 craft (popsicle) sticks in the first place…I dont know. But when he said “Do you want them”? Naturally, I Said “Um, yeah”! Of course I wanted them. It doesn’t even matter that I had no clue what I would do with them, but that doesnt really matter. She who has the most craft crap, is truly happiest.
So bring on the ideas…
I’ve always wanted to learn to weave. When I was in elementary school an elder from the Navajo Nation came to our school and taught us how to weave. While I kind of remember sone of the basics, I do need a refresher. Of course, this one isn’t being taught by an elder from one of the Navajo Nations, but it does involve popsicle sticks and I seem to have an abundance of those. So that’s what we are going with today.
An ABSOLUTELY AMAZING Popsicle Stick Weaving Loom Tutorial.
With one of my kids we even managed to make our Godseye with extra bits of sting randomly placed and not wound around the sticks and we turned it into a windchime.
The beautiful windchime made by my 5 year old artist, Eclipse.
What do with popsicle sticks for fun?
Make anything neat? We want to see!
