Frabulous Frames

What can I do with ALL these popsicle sticks that were just going in the trash??

slob, humor, popsicle skeletons     {So many ice cream bar skeletons.    smh}

Why, make pop stick frames for presents, from PP and Jr, of course!!

So, I did my part by eating all those ice cream bars.    Then, it should be PP’s turn to wash them, right??     Remember the flood??        Yeah, maybe not the best idea…… Nope, the little red hen has to do it.     Boo hoo.

So that the glue wouldn’t stick, I covered a cookie sheet with tin foil.  

slob, humor, protected pan       What???    You taking precautions beforehand??     I’m shocked!         And, ahem, it’s actually aluminum foil now.    

slob, humor, W for "what"

“What”

 

slob, humor, E for "ever"

“Ever”

Onto the actual project.     Or prep for the project.    Whichev.

  • Lay out the pattern.      slob, humor, sticks in pan, yumm!
  • Dots of glue.    slob, humor, Elmer
  • Lay more sticks on top.       slob, humor, gluing
  • Let dry.      (I’ll spare you the visual.    You’re welcome!)
  • Turn over, add 4th sticks.   slob, humor, framed framed in

OOPS! Ran outta sticks!   Back to the store for more i.c .b.         #Not even kidding.

 

(Frantically licking, as fast as I can.       Wash, and dry more sticks.)

  • Let dry again
  • Have PP paint them her choice of color.

slob, humor, painted frames      She even discovered that blue and red make purple!     It was so much fun to hear her exclaim “Pupeh???”      Then she looked at me in amazement.      Watching a child discover on their own is worth a million dollars to me!   Then, she figured out how to make her own “bwown.”       Never was I a prouder Omie!!
