DIY Summer Popsicle Banner

Hello Crafters!

I am so happy to share another SUMMER craft with this month.  I got inspired by a couple of things... I have these popsicle lights hanging in my backyard and I also paused... briefly at Michaels when I saw a popsicle banner.  In the back of my mind I said "I can make that and it will look even better!"  So, this month I made a very fun summer-themed popsicle banner, I made the template for the popsicle myself too!  

Here are my craft supplies:

Colored cardstock
Large popsicle sticks
Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue
Small circle hole punch 
Pipe Cleaner
Small hole punch

Step 1.  I created my template of the popsicle shape.   I then traced my template onto my colored cardstock - I used 5 different bright colors!

Step 2.  Next, I cut the large popsicle sticks in half and then glued them to the popsicle shapes.  I used my favorite glue - Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue and also some clothespins to keep the popsicle stick on the paper.  They will dry pretty quick - as the glue is turbo infused.  They really look like popsicles now! 

Step 3.  I then decorated the popsicles with dots and pipe cleaner and used glue to adhere these embellishments.  This is your chance to be creative and make your banner unique.  You can also add letters, bling, sequins or buttons!

Step 4.  After your banner has dried, you can now punch the holes and thread the twine through the holes.  Your banner is now ready to hang!  

Thank you for stopping by to check out this month's DIY.  If you have any requests, let me know with a comment below.

Craft Lightning: Make it in 15 Minutes or less...


Hello!  I am so excited to be a part of the Craft Lightning Blog Hop.  Here is my quick, simple and sure to make a teacher smile - "CRAFTY FRY BOX"!
Here is my supplies list for my CRAFTY FRY BOX:

White Fry Box (I got mine in a set from
Colored Cardstock (I used Yellow)
Die Cut of Sunglasses
Heart Punch
2 Gem Blings
Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue
Foam Dots
Washi Tape

To make the Sunglasses - here is what you need to do:

Step 1:  Get a die cut of a pair of sunglasses and die cut it in the color of your choice.  If you know your teacher's favorite color - use it!

Step 2:  Punch 2 hearts to be the glasses lenses and adhere them to die cut sunglasses using foam dots.

Step 3:  Adhere the 2 gem bling with Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue.

Step 4:  One the glue has dried, you can adhere the embellished sunglasses to the fry box using a small drop of Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue.  CRAFTY TIP:  You can use a clothespin to hold the sunglasses in place while the glue dries.

Step 5:  Use washi tape to adhere a thin magnet or Thank You tag to the back side of the fry box.

Step 6:  Assemble a fun collection of handy supplies to give to your teacher, see the list below for suggestions.

Here are some handy supplies that will make your teacher smile:

Glitter & Sequins
Jelly Belly & Chocolates
Mary Kay Satin Hands Cream
A nifty "Mothership Scrapbook Gal" Magnet
2 Flair buttons from
Scotch Washi Tape
Mini Aleene's Tacky Glue
Another good idea would be to include a $5 Coffee Gift Card to a local coffee house!
I hope you enjoyed my Back to School Craft Idea.  Have a fun time on the Craft Lightning Blog Hop!
