We love working with craft sticks, lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks (whatever name they go by). They are a fab craft material and so versatile. This craft stick wall hanging is a super fun collaborative art project or perfect for making over a period of time.
Craft Stick Wall Hanging
We did our craft stick wall hanging as a family art project. We have screen free time as a family each evening and it was fun to all fit around the table and decorate our own craft sticks. Now we have made this, we can see lots of possibilities to make different ones. From painting the sticks like this Process Art Craft Stick Rainbow Project by Preschool Powol Packets or by covering them with washi tape, ribbon or lace or even a mixture of all making a multi-media project.

How to Make a Craft Stick Wall Hanging
We all decorated some craft sticks with our pens. I love how individual they all turned out and that we all had a hand in doing them. We went for a crazy rainbow of colours, but you could tone it down with a select palate.
Once we decorated our craft sticks we decided that we wanted to make a wall hanging. So we laid the sticks out in order on a piece of duct tape.
Then we turned the middle bunch of sticks 90 degrees before sticking them all close together on another piece of duct tape.
We stuck some string on the top of the craft sticks with duct tape to make a hanger.
Maxi decided that the hanger needed something else, so took at look at my yarn and decided to make a frill at the bottom. He did this by wrapping the yard around his fingers and attaching the loops with tape before trimming the ends. I have to admit that he was right and it looks fantastic.
