Popsicle Sticks are one of the most multipurpose craft items around. This easel only requires 4 popsicle sticks, a pair of scissors and glue.

Method

Put a dab of glue on the top of one of the pop sticks. Press the other pop stick on top forming an A shape. I like to use a glue gun that dries instantly, but you can also use PVA glue, you'll just have to wait for it to dry before you use the easel.

Fix another pop stick to the back of the A-frame using the glue gun.

Measure the final pop stick against the easel, and cut it to a size that you like.

The easel is ready to go. You can use it as a piece of furniture in a dolls house, a holder for telephone notes, or just as a decoration.

These also make great name place settings for parties or special dinners. Just write each child's name on a piece of card, and prop them up using the easel. It works especially well if you're having an art themed party.
