Step 1: Add Sticks in Vertical Lines
Step 2: Add Sticks to Horizontal Rows
The sticks should hold in place by themselves.
Weave a fourth vertical line of sticks to bring the horizontal lines together.
You'll notice my structure in the final picture is shorter. I decided to make my puzzle smaller than I originally thought I would want so I took off some rows.
Step 3: Add Small Addition
Step 4: Paint Instructables.com
Once this is dry, paint on Instructables.com. Let dry.
Step 5: Dissemble and Store
Most importantly: take a picture of your numbered Popsicle sticks! This will be your roadmap for putting your puzzle back together.
You then can completely dissemble the whole puzzle. Don't worry! You'll be able to put it back together.
Put your Popsicle sticks in a jar. I chose a Mason jar (I had to use two) to put my pieces in. Now you can store your puzzle where ever you'd like!
You should be able to reassemble the puzzle within thirty minutes based on the numbers/letters you wrote on your puzzle.
