  • 2 packs of over 70 large/jumbo crafts sticks each
  • White glue or craft glue
  • Stain (can also use brown craft paint and water)
  • Foam paint brush


  • Start with 6 craft sticks and make a polygon. You need to look at the photo below to see how the sticks overlap each other in a particular way. Every opposite one will either be over the others or under the others on either side. You must follow this pattern.

  • Place drops of glue on the ends of the sticks that are sitting on top of the others. Add craft sticks, then repeat this process again.

  • Once you use a package of craft sticks you will have a depth of about 3 inches. At this point you stop building and set this one aside.

Take the second bag and use 6 sticks to make a triangle.

  • Set both frames out overnight so that the glue can dry completely.

Use the brush to deposit the stain on all areas of the frame.
