RECYCLE. REDUCE. REUSE

To celebrate summer, I’m launching a RECYCLE, REDUCE, REUSE project series, where I recycle and repurpose objects that I’ve consumed throughout the month and reuse them as beautiful,functional everyday objects.

Project #2   

POM POM BOOKMARKS                                                                                               

What you’ll need……                                                                                                                    

Popsicle sticks

Pom pom balls

Glue gun

Paint

Mod Podge

Let’s begin……                                                                                                                    

STEP 1: Apply 2 coats of acrylic paint to the front and back of the popsicle sticks. Make sure the paint has completely dried before you apply the second coat.

STEP 2: Apply 1 coat of Mod Podge to seal the paint. Allow Mod Podge to dry completely before starting step 3.

STEP 3: Lightly trim off some of the fur in back of each pom-pom ball creating a flat surface in the back for each pom-pom pair to rest against.

STEP 4:  Using a hot glue gun, glue 1 pom-pom ball to the front of the popsicle stick. Using a hot glue gun, glue 1 pom-pom ball to the back of the popsicle stick.

 

COMPLETION TIME:  30 minutes

Here’s the finish product!……
