Craft Lightening: Washi Tape Popsicle Frame

Remember those sweet, carefree days of Kindergarten?

Where you were forced to take naps, play games, do puzzles and make stuff?

Sigh.

Well, maybe I’m regressing, or perhaps, never grew up… but I still love those same things.  {except the puzzles… not a puzzle fan, yo.}

And today’s project, is strongly reminiscent of those days before bills and meetings and dishes!

Oh, the dishes!!!

This Washi Tape Popsicle Frame is a quick and easy craft for any age! Just a few popsicle sticks, a clothes pin and a bit of Washi Tape.

So, making this craft gave me a few precious moments to escape back in time and feel like a kid again… which I LOVE.

And I just LOVE being a part of this fun series, Craft Lightening sponsored by Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Carolina from 30 minute Crafts!

And to make this fun craft, you only need a few minutes and a few supplies:

Large Popsicle Sticks

Step 1

 

Lay out a line of Popsicle Sticks. You need to make it longer than wider so you can glue on that cutie-cute cloths pin later!

Tip: Use a book or something to help line up
the sticks so they are actually straight.

 

Step 2

 

Glue three Popsicle Sticks vertically on what will be the back of the frame.

Stagger the sticks like the picture above, so you make sure to brace all the vertical sticks.

 

Step 3

 

Add a strip of tape to one side of your clothes pin.
