Popsicle Stick Desktop OrganizerThis colourful desktop organizer is made from a toilet paper tube and Popsicle sticks. Here, I've used it to keep my brushes organized, while the vivid colours help inspire me to create. I've added a small bowl for mixing colours. This organizer can also be used to hold pencils. Just replace the bowl with erasers or a Post-it note pad. The possibilities are endless! This is a great craft for kids.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 organizer


  • coloured Popsicle sticks
  • craft glue
  • wire cutters or very sharp craft scissors
  • cardboard tube from toilet paper

Popsicle sticks are not just for Popsicles or paddle pop ice cream. They can be made into bracelets, key chains, and even a pen and office supplies organizer.
