Popsicle Umbrella for my Ganpati

Sharing with you another fun popsicle project. An Umbrella.



You will need :

  1. Popsicle sticks - 5 Nos
  2. Yarns of different colours
  3. Glue gun
  4. thermocol balls / beads
  5. Clay
  6. Empty colour bottle
  7. Acrylic Colours
Procedure :-


Arrange 3 sticks as show in the picture below to form the top part of the umbrella




Make the stick support for the umbrella by joining two sticks as shown in the picture



now when the 3 sticks you have arranged earlier has dried up, tie the yarn and wind it around the stick and take it to the next stick, wind around it...so on. the pictures that follows may give you an idea.




Now using glue gun, attach the top portion to the stick. decorate with beads / thermocol balls


Stuff some clay inside an empty colour bottle. Place the stick and cover the bottle with clay by rolling out it using a rolling pin after dusting the surface with talcom powder.




let the clay dry for 2 or 3 days. Then colour it.


Now a beautiful umbrella is ready.

I made it for my ganpati bapa for this chathurthi. ....will be making a post on it soon.
