Now, you may be asking yourself what on Earth did you pick up at the Dollar Store that can be transformed into a fashion piece with a wood burner? Popsicle sticks, of course!
I grabbed a bag of wooden popsicle sticks from the Dollar Store with the hope of transforming them into a project. When I picked up my sticks, I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I figured an idea would just come to me, and boy did it ever! I am always trying to brainstorm different ways to use my wood burner. Every time I see a piece of wood, I envision what it would look like if I added wood burned detail to it (true story!) As I stared at my popsicle sticks, I knew they had to be my next wood burning project!
At first, I was thinking I wanted to use my popsicle sticks as garden markers, but realized I do not have a garden to display them (sad face). I then channeled a Pinterest project I had seen awhile back where someone had turned popsicle sticks into bracelets. Instead of covering my sticks with paper, I decided to add wood burned designs! This is a great project for older kids. You just want to make sure you educate them on how to properly use a wood burner; those suckers can get EXTREMELY hot!
