Glue three popsicle sticks together. You will need two of these, and one on each end to form a rectangle. Keep building it until you have 14 layers. You will need three of these boxes.
Once done, attach each box together with 2 Popsicle sticks. When dry, turn over and do the same to the back. Reinforce by building a fifteenth layer around the two sticks.
Then, depending on the pattern you want, start filling in the back the way you want them.
I put some on diagonally, then added some sideways. I did some straight then added some sideways. It will all depend on the way you want it to look.

This was a spur of the moment craft created when a three year old noticed a sheet of felt circles I had sitting around. As they were self stick pads for the bottom of chair legs and I had extras, I began to think what he could stick them on.
This was a craft project that I did with my 3 year old (the first two parts, anyway). The first part was blowing tempera paint bubbles onto paper with a straw. Then we made the Popsicle stick frame and decorated it. Finally, we used tempera paint to stain the unfinished shadow box.

ThriftyFun is one of the longest running frugal living communities on the Internet. These are archives of older discussions.
I was running out of ideas on miniature furniture to make for a dollhouse when I came across this idea. Look in a Log Cabin book or magazine for pictures of furniture and log cabins. You can duplicate it using popsicle sticks, a glue gun and pruning shears to easily cut the sticks in half.
Another place to look for ideas is a book on how to build wood furniture with step by step illustrations. It has opened up a whole new world on making dollhouse furniture and even landscapes for the outside of the dollhouse. Popsicle sticks are just like miniature 2x4's and the possibilities are endless.
Popsicle sticks also make great hardwood floors for dollhouses. (03/11/2005)
Thanks, this is a great idea! (05/30/2006)
Wooden coffee stirrers make better wood flooring than Popsicle sticks. They are thinner, and more "woody" looking. I found some (not cheap) at the supermarket last week, but they can usually be found in bulk at distributors.
They can also be used for a more "weathered" look on Tudor type wall finishings too. (06/01/2007)
I like the idea - especially since you said that they are like 2 x 4's. Takes the guessing and figuring out, and leaves the fun in! (04/21/2009)
Great idea! Has anyone any photos or instructions on how to make the furniture? (10/03/2009)
