Popsicle Stick Barrel

This is a quick, cheap and easy decoration for a garden or imaginative play with a Barbie or G.I. Joe doll. Items used:
  • Tin can
  • Popsicle or craft sticks
  • Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks
  • 2 thick rubber bands

If you are going to use the barrel outside, cut out the bottom of the can also.

Use a dab of glue on the popsicle stick to hold it to the can.

After you have a few sticks glued down, put the rubber band around bottom but a bit towards the center of the can and slide the remaining sticks around the can until all are in place.

Add a dab of glue to the underside of each stick (you will have to lift it up a bit) to secure it to the can. Slide the other rubber band on the can and adjust both so one is more towards the top and the other more towards the bottom.
