Miniature Winter Sign with Popsicle Sticks

Although these little signs are a little Christmas-y, especially when I put them in my poinsettia plant, I like that they can be used all Winter long. Similar to out Winter wonderland coloring sheet, these mini popsicle stick signs are all about our favorite Winter activities and I’m using them as cute little plant picks for my indoor plants. It’s nice to be reminded of all the things we like to do this season like bake cookies and go sledding.

How to Make Plant Picks using Popsicle Sticks:

Paint the surface of the popsicle sticks in any color or colors of your choosing. We used Bluegrass Green, Zinc and Sea Breeze. Leave them to dry fully before assembling.

Painting the popsicle sticks.

Paint the surface of the wooden coffee stick in white and leave it to also dry fully.

Give them a weathered look by painting over the popsicle sticks in white creme wax and rub off the excess paint with a paper towel.

Rubbing creme wax onto the painted popsicle sticks.

Once dry, cut the popsicle sticks to 2” long, with one end cut on a diagonal.

Cutting the ends of the popsicle sticks on an angle.

Sort them by color and align the sticks so that the longer points meet in the middle forming an arrow at the tip. Using a marker or paint pen, print Winter-themed words on to the popsicle sticks.

Arranging the cut popsicle sticks by color.

We chose HOT COCOA, COZY BLANKETS, BAKE COOKIES.

Using a white marker to write winter themed words on the painted popsicle sticks.

Some other words we used were TREE FARM, ICE RINK, SNOWSHOEING, BUILD A SNOWMAN, SLEIGH RIDES, and SKI RENTALS.

Turn them with the wrong side up and using a hot glue gun, glue the painted wooden coffee stick perpendicular to the craft sticks forming a miniature sign.

Insert the mini signs into your indoor planters to enjoy all Winter long.
