After having a very tiny celebration of my oldest turning 5, I thought it would be cute to create a simple keepsake to give to each of the party goers. I made this DIY popsicle stick photo frame so everyone could remember having a fun time in the stock tank pool!
This craft would be wonderful for birthday party thank yous, ornaments, keepsakes, or preschool/kindergarten crafts! The possibilities are endless.
I swear, once you have all the supplies this takes less than 5 minutes and is so darn cute!
Let me show you how I made this easy and affordable DIY popsicle stick photo frame.

- Jumbo multi-colored craft sticks (I used 14 per frame, 10 for front, 4 for back)
- Hot glue gun
- 4×6 photos
- Buttons (you could also use wood cutouts, foam stickers, etc)
If you are using a 4×6 photo, line up 10 jumbo popsicle sticks in any design pattern you like. I did three different ones to show some options.
Choose four random popsicle sticks and hot glue them to the 10 sticks in the below pattern. This will keep the entire thing together!
Hot glue a piece of string to the two end sticks.
Hot glue your photo to the front of your frame in the center. I put four tiny dots of hot glue on each corner. If you want, glue a cute button or wood shape to the front for an extra pop!
That is it! It is really that simple and super cute.
