Ice cream sticks shelf
In the tutorial you will see how with six sticks you can make a hexagon and you can stick them with the silicone gun. Once you have the hexagon done, You only have to put the sticks on each side of the hexagon until you have the shelf width you want. It should be wide enough for you to place your objects.
The ideal is to paint it with acrylic paint, although with normal paint or spray is also a good choice. Once it's dry when you stick the sticks, you paint it and when it's all dry... you'll have your shelf ready!
A table top
The shelves are necessary in all the houses since they have a very useful function to put pots or hot pans on top and That the tables or table cloths do not spoil.
And with only 8 sticks (or more, depending on the size you want in your table), side by side and joining them in the bottom with another three sticks to the opposite direction will be more than enough. Afterwards you will only have to paint with a spray and you will have your shelves.
Mini Fruit Box
A few chopsticks separated by an approximately horizontal centimeter will be more than enough to start this small fruit box structure. You will have to go sticking the sticks of ice cream in all the sides and of correct form so that they fit well in the sides and a form of box is created.
Cut out the rounded ends so the box is square. You do not need to paint the box, as the color of the chopsticks will give a nice touch to your mini fruit box.
The ends of ice cream sticks are ideal for creating original earrings. With only a punch you can drill the top of the earring to pass a ring or a wire to help you create the slope shape.
Then you'll just have to paint it as you like. You can create different straight lines or paint as you want. Cheap earrings and recycled, great idea!
In addition to having some nice earrings, you can also have your own organizer of them. You can place your new earrings made with ice cream sticks and also, all you want.
You will have to create two triangles with three sticks each and stick them with silicone. In the video you can see clearly how to do it, it will be great!
