4th of July Project: Popsicle Stick Flag Craft
Popsicle Sticks (you’ll need 11 sticks for 1 flag)
Acrylic Paint in red, white and blue. I used:
Star Stickers (I picked mine up at wal mart in the scrapbook section for a buck!)
If you’re making several of these at once, you may want to glue them together and let them dry for a few hours or overnight. You may also want to add the final stick if you’re going to make these ahead of time.
Line up 9 popsicle sticks. Take another stick and glue it on the right side of the sticks as shown. Let dry.
Flip over the flag and using a pencil, section off about 1/3 of the left side of the top four sticks to create the blue boundary for the stars.
Paint the flag using red, white and blue acrylic paint. Let dry. Add star stickers. Glue handle onto the existing stick. Let dry and wave with pride!
