What You’ll Need:

  • glue (or other form of adhesive)
  • paint (red, white, and blue)

Directions:

Paint three jumbo popsicle sticks red and the remaining two jumbo popsicle sticks white. Set aside and allow to dry.

Once the paint is dry, flip the sticks over and align them red, white, red, white, red. With the smaller popsicle sticks, trim off the ends with a pair of sharp scissors, and apply them to the back of the larger sticks with glue or other form of adhesive longways along the sides.
