diy mini crate made from lollypop sticks






you will need
lolly pop sticks
scissors
glue gun
cut the rounded edges of the lolly pop sticks making sure you cut 6 the same size this will be for two of the sides, then decide how wide you want it and cut six of them as well, you will need to decide on the height, i wanted a gap between each stick so i measured it and then i cut 8 pieces the same size. take the 8 pieces and lay them out in twos and then take the side parts and glue them to it like the photo below.
then i glued all the pieces together and then cut four sticks for the bottom and glued it on.

i then made a tag with clay. i painted it white and then sanded it and rubbed some wood stain on it.

    Your flowers are WAY more dreamy than mine, though. lol
