When you're looking for a way to reuse items around your house for crafting ideas, try making popsicle stick crafts like this classy popsicle stick.
Lay out the wax paper on the work surface where you will glue the popsicle sticks together. This way, the finished pieces will pull off easily, and make it less likely to fall apart.
There are two options when building a wall. The first option is to place the sticks next to each other until you reach the height and width you want, trimming the excess off of the side. The other option, which is displayed in the example house, is to cut some popsicle sticks to different lengths before placing them. This creates a more interesting wood paneling effect, and seems to make the walls more stable.
Whichever option you choose, decide on what size you want your house to be. The example house will be 6 inches wide by 6 inches wide, and will be roughly 3 inches tall (or 8 popsicle sticks tall). Try to think of height in terms of popsicle sticks. It's very difficult to cut popsicle sticks lengthwise without causing splintering.
Place the first set of popsicle sticks to the desired height. Make sure the edges of the sticks are all lined up. Once ready, glue the sticks together using the paintbrush and Mod Podge. Dip the paintbrush into Mod Podge, and then paint the Mod Podge onto the popsicle sticks to attach them together. Because the popsicle sticks are light and move around easily, use your free hand to hold them down while you apply the Mod Podge.
Lay out popsicle sticks until you reach the height and length of the wall that you want. It’s okay if some of the popsicle sticks go a bit further than the length you want, you can trim them down later. Once all the popsicle sticks have been laid out, glue them together.
Once the glue has dried, trim the sides of the wall down. As shown in the picture, it can be difficult to line the popsicle sticks up perfectly. Simply use the scissors to trim everything down, and it’ll be a nice even rectangle.
Repeat this process twice, changing the sizes as necessary to get walls at the dimensions you want. It’s important to note that there are two pairs of walls. The side walls are both solid and exact copies. The front and back walls have the same width and height, but the front wall will have a gap for the door and windows.
Summer at my house means lots of playing outdoors, vacation and of course, popsicles. We go through tons of popsicles, which means that we have tons of popsicle sticks left over every single week.

How to Make Popsicle Stick Hot Pads or Trivets To make this craft, you will need In fact, the first craft I have a distinct memory of was building a popsicle stick.
Making this adorable little Popsicle® stick house is both easy and fun. Follow the directions and before you know it, you’ll have a new piece of shelf art to show off. Create several in varying sizes and display together for a charming vignette.
Using very sharp scissors and a lot of care, trim 23 regular-sized Popsicle® sticks to measure approximately 2-3/4 inches each. While trimming, cut off the rounded ends on both sides to create flat edges. Next, trim 16 sticks to measure 3-1/4 inches, leaving one side with the rounded edge intact.
Assemble the base by gluing together 7 of the shorter straight-edged sticks (laying next to each other, as shown), with 2 of the straight-edged pieces glued perpendicularly as cross-support.
To make the walls, create 4 frames using 4 of the shorter straight-edged sticks for each, glued into a square shape and covered in fabric. Use different patterns or colors to create a fun and funky look. You don’t need to be concerned about the back sides of the walls because they won’t be visible once your house is complete.
Carefully glue each wall, one at a time, to the base. Then glue each wall together at the sides. Use care to avoid creating a hot-glue mess.
To create the eaves, cut out two cardboard triangles with 2-inch sides and a 2-1/2-inch bottom. Cover in fabric. Glue the long sides to opposite walls. Affix the rooftop, one stick at a time, by gluing first to the side of the fabric triangle and then to the top of the wall. As you add the sticks, glue carefully at each seam. If you’d like to make your house into a hanging ornament, glue in a loop of string or ribbon halfway through this process, with the ends anchored in between sticks and a loop sticking out the top.
