Hand Painted Popsicle Stick Puzzle

This is a fun way to turn Popsicle sticks into a puzzle. I've made a love themed one, but you can paint whatever you'd like on it. Taking a photo of it creates a key for the puzzle player to follow. You can have this on a mobile device, or you can print it out.



  1. Lay out your popsicle sticks side by side. I used coloured sticks and put them in double rainbow order.
  2. Add a few long strips of tape so they stick together.
  3. Flip it over and draw a light outline of your main image in pencil.
  4. Fill it in with paint.
  5. Allow to dry.
  6. Add an outline in black paint to give it a nice contrast.
  7. Add any other images or text in light pencil.
  8. Trace it in paint and allow to dry.
  9. Remove the tape from the back of the puzzle. Take a photograph of the finished puzzle.
  10. Mix the puzzle pieces around and give the recipient the image to use as a key.
