With just a few basic craft supplies, make these colorful Popsicle stick flower pots with the kids!
Between summer camp crafts and school art projects, I’ve made my fair share of Popsicle stick picture frames, houses, and puppets – all oozing with way too much white glue to hold it all together. Luckily this flower pot project is glue-free. And it’s a fun way to welcome spring!
Popsicle Stick Flower Pots
- 20-30 popsicle sticks
- tin can
- rubber band
- flowers & dirt
1. Using markers, color the popsicle sticks in a variety of colors. The kids can also get creative and make patterns, shapes, etc. to decorate the popsicle sticks.
2. Put a rubber band around the tin can, making sure it’s a snug fit.
3. Place the popsicle sticks under the rubber band, pushing them together so there are no gaps.
4. Continue placing popsicle sticks underneath the rubber band all the way around the can. Depending on the size of your can, you’ll need about 25 popsicle sticks to cover the whole thing.
5. Now to hide the rubber band! Tie a piece of coordinating ribbon around the can, making sure it’s wide enough to cover up the rubber band.
6. Finally, add a little bit of dirt to the bottom of the can and plant a flower in it.
Voila! A cute little popsicle stick flower pot that is perfect to give as a Mother’s Day gift or for a favorite teacher as an end of the year present!
And if you want to make this project even easier…grab a bag of colored craft sticks the next time you are at the store. So much easier than having to color a bunch of popsicle sticks. Plus the colors are much brighter! Have fun crafting!
