"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Popsicle Stick Beach Sign

Here's a fun and easy way to display your beach souvenirs: create a Popsicle Stick Beach Sign using objects you find on the beach. This popsicle stick craft from Amanda Formaro is thrifty and quick to whip up. It'll give your home a nautical vibe!

Popsicle Stick Beach Sign

Materials:

  • 10 jumbo craft sticks
  • Small pebbles
  • Assorted shells, fish teeth and a starfish
  • Sand
  • White craft glue
  • Twine or string
  • Acrylic craft paint: Sea Green and White
  • Paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. Paint all of the craft sticks with Sea Green and let dry. Glue all of the craft sticks together, side by side. Do not line them up perfectly. Off set them so they appear jagged.

  2. Dry brush white paint over the top to give the green a washed out look, leaving some green peeking through.
     
  3. Use white craft glue to write the word BEACH in capital letters across the top of the plaque. Place small pebbles in the glue to create the letters.
     
  4. Use a paintbrush or your finger to spread white craft glue across the bottom and a few inches up both sides, then cover the glue with sand and let sit for five minutes. Tap off the excess sand.

  5. Glue starfish and shells along the sandy area. Glue the fish teeth in a row in the middle of the plaque.
     
  6. Fashion a simple hanger from twine and glue it to the back.

This is such a cute idea. You can repurpose some things you have, if you happen to go on vacation at or near a beach. You can gather some sand and shells and use them to make this beautiful sign to remember your vacation. We are currently on vacation near the beach in Ohio, so I think I will collect some sand and shells if we get there and make this cute sign.

Amazing! This is the best way to welcome summer. Popsicle crafts are fast and thrifty. You could collect these sticks or just buy a bag for your projects. I love the ocean green colour and initially I thought it was blue. I'd switch it up for a coral colour like orange, it willmakes blend in perfectly in my bathroom.

The addition of the sand along the bottom makes the whole thing come to life. I did not notice that in the picture. Then I read the instructions and saw it. So simple I think anybody could do it! Even kids. It is a great stormy day project for you and the family. All these items can easily be found at Michaels craft stores.

Love it. Do you have a video I tried and the glue makes it just buckle up
