Introduction: Popsicle Stick Flower Vase - Rainbow

About: I enjoy designing 3D models and printed circuit boards. I am an Electrical Engineer. I will share some cool projects & try out a few! #innovator

In this blog I will show you how I made this colorful desktop flower pot for less than $5.

Step 1: Materials

Trip to the Dollar Store

  • Browse the craft section
  • Popsicle sticks/Craft Sticks
  • Birds or butterflies
  • Toppings (marbles, shells, etc. Be creative!)
  • Floral foam
  • Mini Picture Frame

Step 2: Assembly


  1. Start the flower pot off by gluing two popsicle sticks in an "L" shape. The third stick will not be long enough to make a perfect triangle but don't worry, your pot will be adorable.
  2. Glue the stick on top of the previous two.
  3. You will continue this pattern of stick gluing until you are satisfied with the height or until you run out of popsicle sticks. Let dry. (In the photo I did not :/)
  4. Next you will cut the floral foam into the shape of the flower pot, squish it into place. This will aid in the arrangement of your artificial flowers.
  5. Flowers can be snipped down to size of flower pot. I used a pair of wire cutters.
  6. Once desired arrangement is finished, add birds, butterflies, etc.
  7. Add a mini picture frame to complete this project.

Step 3: Finished Vase

All done. Give vase as a gift. Decor any room. Share this project with friends.
