Summer Kid’s Craft – Dyed Sunburst Frames

The summer is a great time to bust out some crafts with the kids. Whether they are spending too much time on screens, the weather is less than stellar or you just want to engage your kids with another form of creativity, crafts are an awesome way to teach your kids to explore. Beckie from Infarrantly Creative here, back to show you a fun summer kid’s craft idea. My daughter, Kayla and I decided to make a sunburst out of Popsicle sticks and the new Ultra Dye from Plaid. I just saw it hit the shelves and I decided to give it a whirl.

Supplies:
Plaid Ultra Dye in various colors
Craft sticks
7” Embroidery hoop
Wood glue
Foam brushes
• Disposable gloves
1. Make sure to protect your work area and your kid’s skin by wearing gloves and covering your table. The gloves I had for Kayla were a bit large but worked for the job.
2. With a foam brush coat each craft stick front and back with the dye. Just a thin coat is needed. Let them dry.

3. Also coat an embroidery hoop in one coat of the dye. Let dry.

4. Once dry you can sand them a little to give them a distressed look, or don’t and let the sticks remain vibrant.

5. Squirt some wood glue on your hoop working a little at a time. Make sure to prop your sticks up while they are drying so they don’t slip off the hoop.

6. Once completely dry you can unscrew your embroidery hoop pin. The glue on the sticks will hold the hoop in place.

Use a small nail to hang it. If dye isn’t your thing and you want a more subtle look grab some craft paints and paint them with those instead.

It sure makes a cute wall decor or door wreath that your kids will be proud to showcase.
