These adorable popsicle stick crafts are a sweet way for kids to celebrate Valentine's Day or make on a rainy crafternoon! See full tutorials below to make each a Unicorn and Monster popsicle stick!


 

Make Valentine's Day a magical journey of love and friendship. Have kids show their support for their families and friends by making an easy popsicle stick unicorn craft. Kids will love to construct, paint and add details to bring this creature to life!

 

Unicorn Popsicle Stick Craft - Materials:

 

Popsicle sticks

Craft paint

Yarn in various colors

Cardstock

Tacky glue

Paint brushes

 

Instructions:

 

Step 1. First glue 7 popsicle sticks together side by side. Allow it to dry well.

 

Step 2. Paint your sticks white. Allow the paint to dry well.

 

Step 3. Glue on some yarn to the top as the mane.

 

Step 4. Glue on paper eyes, ears and a horn.

 

Step 5. Paint on a nose or nostrils!

 

For extra hanging ability glue a magnet or string to the back and pair with a treat or special note for Valentine's Day.

 



 

Boys may not be so inclined to participate in the Valentine's Day festivities so make their crafts a little less frilly and stick to cooler colors. Throw in a heart or two to keep it "traditional". They will have a blast making silly, scary faces, but remind them that even little monsters are capable of love too!

 

Also, try out brushing the yarn after it's glued down to create this fantastic wild hair look!

 

Monster Popsicle Stick Craft - Materials:

 

Popsicle sticks

Craft Paint

Yarn 

Wiggle eyes

Washi tape

Pipe cleaners 

Tacky glue

Paint brushes

 

Instructions:

 

Step 1. First glue 7 popsicle sticks together side by side. Allow it to dry well.

 

Step 2. Paint your sticks a blue-green color. Allow the paint to dry well.

 

Step 3. Glue on some yarn to the top as the hair. After the glue was dried I brushed the yarn with a small brush to make it all crazy!

 

Step 4. Place a piece of tape over wiggle eyes and cut off the extra, this makes great eyelids.

 

Step 5. Glue on eyes, a mouth, teeth and eyebrows. I used a heart paper punch to make the nose.

 

For extra hanging ability glue a magnet or string to the back and pair with a treat or special note for Valentine's Day.
