Upcycle Craft - Uppity's Door

In Uppity Owl Upcycles a Brooch, Uppity finds a half-sunken popsicle stick boat in the pond he lives next to. What does Uppity do with it? Try this weekend craft to find out!

9 Popsicle Sticks
1 Small Button
Stained Glass Window Gels
Diagonal Cutters

Tip: Go straight to step five because it will have to dry overnight.

Step 1: Measure the window on the inner 5 sticks using a ruler and pencil. 1 1/4in height, about 1/2" from the top.

Step 2: Use diagonal cutters to cut.

Step 3: Cut popsicle sticks to size for the back of the door. Glue onto the back of the door horizontally with hot glue gun. This will bind the popsicle sticks without having to glue them together individually. I used some thinner sticks I had but regular sticks will work just fine.

Step 4: Sand rough edges in the cut out window. Glue on button for the door knob.

 Step 5: Take your stained glass window gels/glue and transparency sheet to create the stained glass window. Let dry overnight.

Step 6: Cut toothpicks to fit inside of the window frame and paint them gold then use the hot glue gun to glue them in.

Step 7: Use another sheet of transparency to stick on the other side of the glass window. I didn't have to use any glue to get it to just adhered to the gel/glue. Measure the window to fit/cover the window area then cut. Finally, glue the stained glass window onto the back of the door with the hot glue gun.

Step 8: Enjoy your creation!

Careful, Uppity just might show up at your door. ;0)

Whoo Whoo!
