Popsicle Stick Signage

 I’ve been experimenting with craft sticks and found they are pretty easy to cut with scissors and glue together to make your own signage. I trimmed the ends of jumbo-size sticks so they would lie flush to each other when I was making simple letters. Symmetrical letters worked well this way, such as the “A” and the “Y”. Others like the “T” and “H” I overlapped to make the glueing easier. When the letters were flush, I glued little pieces of stick to the backsides as shown in the back photo. Lastly, I glued all the letters to one long strand of sticks I had layered together. I recommend using craft glue; it’s thicker and dries faster.

This is a fabulous idea! Popsicle sticks can be a very "done that" kind of art supply, but this is great.
I have a whole bunch waiting for a project.
thanks!

This will be perfect to have the kids do and can use them as signs on their doors. We all know how territorial they can be over their rooms haha!

This looks wonderful!
Just can't imagine the "P" or "R", "S" and so on :-(

This is really adorable! Thank you for sharing this awesome idea. I loved the details of this signage. We also did a Popsicle chain reaction activity out of the same materials you used. You should check this out!
