Popsicle Stick Pendant

It's so easy and cheap to make pendants from popsicle sticks.
I've back at The Pinning Mama Today sharing how to make these pretty pendants from "popsicle" sticks. It does pain me to call them that - to me they are lolly sticks - always have been, always will be! I even made an image with a Lolly Stick Pendant title - just for UK readers! 

But today I am a guest at The Pinning Mama and "when in Rome" and all that, so popsicle stick it is. 
Anyway, whatever you call them they are cheap as chips and you can make 2 pendants from each one with just a scrap of pretty paper and some glue.
They would be great for kids to decorate (you'll have to prepare them first) and would make great earrings or charms too.

So pop over here to see a full tutorial and a few different versions I tried out.
Just out of interest, what do you call them in your part of the world?

  5. Hi Julie, after looking at this for a minute, if you were making up several of these, they would be cute grouped together, a lobster claw clasp could be used and then they could be interchangeable. Just a thought.

    Thanks again for sharing!!

    1. Glad to help, I hope it comes in useful. I think as long as an adult does the prep first then a group of kids could decorate these with minimal supervision and get great results.
