For this popsicle stick corn craft you'll need a few materials including:
Popsicle sticks: We used yellow sticks we had, but you can paint regular ones yellow.
Craft paper: We used green for the husks of the corn.
Googly eyes: We used the real ones, but you could grab our printable googly eyes instead if you prefer.
Basic supplies like:
- Glue (We used a glue gun, but craft glue would work too. Just longer drying time!)
Start by lining up seven popsicle sticks together.
We used yellow popsicle sticks since we had some in our craft supplies.
But you could use regular popsicle sticks and paint them yellow. Make sure to cover both sides.
The popsicle stick in the center needs to be the highest, while each one slowly steps down in height as the go out, like shown above.
This will help form the top of the corn on the cob.
This will also be the back of the corn, as we will attach all the popsicle sticks together using additional popsicle sticks.
We just trimmed 2 popsicle sticks and placed a long strip of glue on them, then attached them covering all 7 of the yellow popsicle sticks.
While the glue drys on the sticks, move on to making the green corn husks out of the craft paper.
Grab the green paper and fold it in half. Draw a big leaf shape like shown above on the paper.
Cut out the husk from the green colored paper while still folded. You should end up with 2 big identical leaf shapes.
Glue them to the front of your corn cob (not the side with the attached popsicle sticks.)
Now you can stop here and you have an adorable corn on the cob craft already done.
But we wanted to add some personality to our corn craft, so we added some googly eyes!
And to finish the little corn off, we added a cute little smile with our black marker.
Isn't he just the cutest little corn on the cob you've ever seen!!
