Okay, so you’ve got your supplies gathered up! We’re ready to put this awesome-ness TOGETHER!
Popsicle Stick Puzzle Instructions:
Gather enough popsicle sticks to make your puzzle board. I like to make my puzzles square and since I’m using the jumbo sticks, I used 6 sticks for my puzzle. Carefully tape the sticks together making sure they are tight together but do not overlap.
Turn the taped together popsicle sticks over and carefully paint a layer of paint onto the sticks. You may want to do two coats of paint. If you do so be sure to let the paint dry between layers.
When your base paint is completely dry use the paint pens to add a picture to the puzzle. I loved the phrase “Let’s Stick Together”. I used white paint for my background and added red and silver details but you could use any colors you’d like. I added a large red heart and let it dry completely then added silver wording and details as well as some additional red hearts and the word Valentine. I love how easy the paint pens are to use. They make adding the picture so easy!
When the paint is completely dry turn the puzzle over and remove the tape. Stack the sticks all together and tie a ribbon around them to hold them together.
You can add a tag with a “To” and “From” if you plan to give the puzzle to someone special! It’s fun to make, give, and receive! Not only are these perfect for Valentine’s Day — but they’d make fun crafts for any season or holiday using different colors.
