Popsicle Fan

 

Make this Popsicle Fan craft for Veterans Day in red, white and blue or your own country’s flag colours with popsicle sticks and crepe paper.

Popsicle Fan

 

You will need:

  • 6 popsicle sticks
  • Glue
  • Crepe paper
  • Old tinsel (optional)

How to make a Popsicle Fan…

See steps in photos…

  1. Stick the ends of the 6 popsicle sticks together in a fan shape and leave to dry.
  2. Cut strips of crepe paper about an inch wide.
  3. Cut the strips into chunks so that they can be glued easily across the popsicle sticks.
  4. Start from the middle and work your way out. Blue in the middle, then white, then red on the outside for the USA.
  5. Stick small amounts of tinsel to the very ends for a sparkly effect and leave to dry.

Tips…

  • Try not to use too much glue as it will show through the crepe paper.
  • Put the glue on the popsicle sticks not the crepe paper.
  • Cutting the crepe paper into smaller rectangles will make it easier to get a neat line.
  • You can also use the fan as a decoration.
