I love baking cookies around Christmastime! I made a batch last night and they’re delicious. (You can see a post about it here.)

What’s your favorite type of cookie? I’m a huge fan of gingerbread.

Camp Dolliwatha, Week One: Popsicles

Popsicles

1-DSC_1559

You will need:

  • Mod Podge
  • Sculpey
  • A Q-Tip
  • Popsicle stick
  • Aluminum foil
  • Scissors (not shown)

2-DSC_1564

To begin, cut your popsicle stick in half (I’m using jumbo popsicle sticks, but if you have normal ones, than skip that step). Then cut it down to three inches.

Take aluminum foil and scrunch it around the popsicle stick (so you don’t have to use as much Sculpey). Make sure to leave space at the bottom for the stick to poke out.

Cover the foil in Sculpey color of your choice. Once the clay is on, smooth it out with your finger or the back of a spoon. Then bake the popsicle according to the instructions on the Sculpey package.

Once the popsicle is out of the oven, use the Q-Tip to spread Mod Podge over it. This will give the popsicle a shiny look.

Let the Mod Podge dry, and you’re done! Now your dolls have a tasty, cool summer treat.

If you made this craft, email me up to three pictures at happyhouseofag@gmail.com. I’ll include your photo(s) in the weekly Camp Dolliwatha recap post on Saturday!
