CIY Staff Tips:

  • If you don’t have popsicle sticks at home, substitute craft sticks instead.


Step 1

Cut approximately 1” off each end of 1 popsicle stick. Line up 2 full-length popsicle sticks.

Step 2

Cover clothespin and all popsicle sticks with paint. Dry 1–2 hours. Add second coat. Dry 1–2 hours.

Step 3

Draw details on popsicle sticks and clothespin with markers.

Step 4

To create wings, glue full popsicle sticks to top and bottom on front of clothespin. Glue small popsicle stick to top on back of clothespin.

Step 5

Add shimmery details with glitter glue. Let all glue steps dry 3–4 hours.

Step 6

Repeat all steps to create your own fleet!
