Once you get started, you will see just how simple the process is. These are such a hit that I made a couple extra to give to friends. They loved them so much when they used them at our house. They also make a really fun end of school year gift. You could hand out one DIY popsicle holder plus a popsicle out to each child. They can freeze it when they get home and have a cool Summer treat. Plus, they have the popsicle holder to use all Summer long! So fun and practical!
The felt and other supplies needed are very inexpensive! You can buy buttons in bulk on Amazon for really cheap. I also save any extra buttons all year long for craft projects like this. You may not even need to buy any. I actually had felt left over from when we made a DIY Sock Puppet and when we learned how to make a Bunny Charm. Once you start making crafts, your supply will build and often you won’t even need to go buy supplies.
It’s very budget friendly to make several of these. Once you get started making them, it’s easy to just keep going and make several more. Perfect for Summer!
Supplies needed for Homemade Popsicle sleeve:
How to make a Homemade Popsicle Holder:
- Use a pencil to measure a piece of felt 3″ x 5″ and cut it out with scissors.
- Use a pencil to make two marks for buttons. This will be along the 5″ side. You’ll mark 1.5″ from the left and 0.75″ from the top. Add a dot with a pencil. Repeat on the other side of the rectangle, measuring 1.5″ from the right side and 0.75″ from the top.
- Thread a needle and sew your buttons onto the felt at the marks. I sewed two buttons at once to add more of a decorative look. Flip felt over so the buttons are face down on a table.
- Cut 2 pieces of elastic cord 3″ in length. Fold 1 piece in half and measure 1.5″ from the left side and let the two tails of the folded elastic extend 1″ beyond the top of the felt. Pin to hold in place. Hand stitch the elastic to the felt and repeat on the opposite side. Remove pins.
- Place the popsicle onto the felt and wrap it around, looping the button into the elastic to hold it in place.
