This simple modern popsicle stick shelf can be great way to add some dimension and pops of color to your wall. This is a great project for beginning DIY'ers looking to add some fun to their dwelling. Because it uses wood glue instead of hot glue, this is a great project for kids. It teaches them to how to build and create something fun and versatile. There are many different colors you can create your shelf. If you wanted something other than the rainbow or raw wood color, you would just need to add paint or stain to your supply list.
