Happy Crafty Fridays!
I’m busting at the seams, super pumped for #craftyfridays. I made an important decision this week. As a Life Coach and all around awesome human being, I regularly check in with myself to make sure I’m finding value in everything I’m doing. I went through so much of my life unhappy, trying to please others while I stifled the best parts of me. After a horrible 2016, I realized it was up to myself, and only me, to go after what I want in life. I want to create, to make money as an artist. I want to craft for a living. So I am. I’m currently creating revenue streams solely based on my love and passion for DIY, crafting and art.
I moved into this apartment six months ago, and the walls are still slightly bear. I have tons of creative lighting because I make and sell custom lamps. Click here to check out my new lamps
Since I can’t fill my walls with lighting and I refuse to go another day without using my artistic ability to add a little pop to these walls this popsicle shelf is PERFECT!
I’m a quick, cheap and dirty kind of crafter. I don’t have tons of time because, well because I’m secretly taking over the world, I don’t have a lot of money because I’m an artist and we were made to starve 🙂
So here you go, this tutorial is simple, impressive and so easy your five-year-old can join in on the fun.
DIY Popsicle Shelf
Time: 10 mins
Hexagon pattern – click here to download
100 Popsicle sticks (got mine at the 99 cent store)
glue gun or regular glue (I like to use my glue gun because it dries faster and tends to hold better)
Print out this pattern
Start with three popsicle sticks skipping every other line on hexagon
place a small amount of glue at the end of each stick
Layer sticks by placing sticks on the lines of the hexagon you skip
Continue until your out of sticks
Allow time to dry
Hang and enjoy!
