Are you a star? Make a String of Stars

Call me crazy but I think paddle pop sticks are so amazing.

Yes the humble paddle pop stick.

They can be used to create picture frames, small planter boxes and pencil containers.

Save the mess and buy plain coloured paddle pop sticks and decorate yourself or purchase the multi-coloured ones for quicker crafts for kids.
