This colorful Summer Popsicle Garland cools down any party. I am sharing this post as a part of the Cricut Ambassador Program. My opinions and craft tutorials are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which won’t cost you extra, but helps support this site.
Growing up, my parents didn’t purchase ice cream very often. But we did have popsicles in the freezer almost always. Perhaps this is why popsicles bring back a sense of nostalgia for me. I’m thinking that I may need to have a popsicle party just for me! The kids would probably want to be invited, too, though. No matter the age, I think everyone would like to be invited to a party with this Popsicle Garland that is perfect for summer parties!
Here are the supplies that I used to create this garland:
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Standard Grip Cutting Mat
- Cricut card stock
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Craft glue
For Cricut users, this garland is simple because it uses an already available image in Cricut Design Space. I’m using this twin popsicle image, but there are others available. There is one that has a pre-cut hole for hanging, but it wasn’t offered as part of my Cricut Access subscription and I’m cheap, so I went with a free one. 🙂
Decide how large that you want the popsicles to be on the garland and size the image. I then ungrouped the image and deleted all layers EXCEPT for the portion with the sticks and the main popsicle outline.
I then cut out lots of popsicles in a variety of colors. To decide how many popsicles to cut, I typically measure the length that I need the garland to be and divide this by 5 (I space my shapes approximately 5″ apart).
I glued the popsicle stick portions to the colorful tops with craft glue. I used the hot glue and hot glue gun to attach the finished popsicles to the twine.
