Paint Poured Popsicle Stick Bracelets
Who remembers attending summer camp as a kid and using craft sticks to make cool projects? I have a vivid memory of making a wand with a popsicle stick as the handle and running home to show my Mom. It was the start of my love of crafting! Let’s get crafty and make some fun paint poured bracelets!
Here is what you need to make these popsicle stick bracelets:
- Jumbo Natural Craft Sticks
- DecoArt Pouring Medium
- Decoart Clear Pouring Topcoat
- DecoArt Acrylic Craft Paint
Boil Popsicle Sticks
Keep your eye out at the dollar store as you may be able to find popsicle sticks there. Start by boiling a pot of water and drop in the sticks. It is best to boil more sticks than you need as some may crack and split. Boil for 5 minutes, then let them soak in the hot water for at least 30 minutes. Remove from the water and place on a kitchen towel to dry them off.
This is where you need to be careful so you don’t break the popsicle sticks. Gently roll the stick to form the size of a bracelet and place it into a glass or mason jar to dry. I made these small for my little 3 yo niece, Lilo. Let them dry overnight and then you are ready to paint!
Gather the paint colors that you want to use. I went with bright colors like pinks, purples and blues, as those are colors all little girls like right? Follow the directions on the back of the paint pouring bottle. Basically pour equal amounts of the acrylic paint to the paint pouring medium and stir. As I had plenty of craft sticks left I used those.
Now the fun begins! Simply pour the various paint colors onto the bracelet and roll the paint around to get full coverage. It is so cool to see how the paint starts to blend and form really fun designs. Keep swirling the bracelet around so you have the entire front and back of the bracelet covered. Let dry overnight.
Add Top Coat
Once the paint is dry, brush on the top coat and let it dry at least an hour. Sit back and admire your beautiful popsicle stick bracelets! I can’t wait to give these to my niece. I will share a picture of her when she puts them on. There will definitely be more of these in my life. I want to make some for me, and my daughter has already put in her request!
