Default Popsicle Stick Picture Frame


Eight clean Popsicle sticks

Paint or magic markers

Tacky craft glue

Photograph of yourself that it is okay for you to cut (get permission!)



Cardboard (you can use an old cereal box)

Yarn (if you want to hang your frame)

Magnet (if you want to be able to put your frame on the refrigerator or a filing cabinet)

Any of the following items to decorate the frame:
sequins, buttons, construction paper, yarn, stickers, nuts and bolts, fishing lures, buttons, ribbons, tiny fake flowers, golf tees, puzzle pieces, lace, stamps, wrapping paper, fabric, or pictures of their favorite hobby cut from magazines, etc.


Arrange the Popsicle sticks as follows: put two side-by-side vertically (up and down). Put two more (arranged the same way) next to them.

Take the photograph and slide the edges under the four sticks so that neither of the sides (right or left) show.

Place two more Popsicle sticks, side-by-side, so that the top edge is covered. Do the same with the bottom edge using the last two sticks. (The top and bottom parts will cross over the side parts of the frame.) Use the pencil to lightly mark where the frame will attach. You may need to trim the picture if it is too big.

Use the glue to put the frame together. Let it dry overnight.

While you are waiting for the frame to dry, put the picture on a piece of cardboard and trace around it. Trim the cardboard to be just a little larger than the picture (about 1/4" all the way around).

Glue the picture to the center of the cardboard.

Decorate the frame using paints or markers. Let that dry (if you used paint) and then further decorate it with the items you've collected. You can see some frame decorating ideas with our fridge frame project.

Once the frame is dry (paint or glue), glue the picture to the frame.

If you want to hang the frame, glue a 4" piece of yarn to the back of the frame. (Glue one end to each top corner.) If you would rather it be a magnetic frame, glue a magnet to the back. You can also make a stand using a stiff piece of cardboard. (Cut a 4" by 2" rectangle. Bend the cardboard at one end about 1/2" from the top. Glue the bent part to the back so that the frame can stand up (you may need to trim it a little if it's too long.)

Wrap it up, and give someone a special surprise!
