How To Make A Popsicle Stick Sun Craft
- Let’s start with our sun’s base. Draw a circle on your felt. You can make this as big as you want. Anything that has a circular shape will work. In this case, I am using a cover of a jar.
- Once you are finished drawing your circle cut it out.
- We can now make our sun’s face. Next, we are ready to glue our googly eyes to our sun. Now that our face is done we are ready to make the sun rays.
- Grab your 4 popsicle stick and cut them in half. Then glue them to the back or your sun. Try to place them into a circular pattern. Then allow to dry for about a minute.
- That it! Your sun craft is done. You can customize your sun even further if you which.
