Do your kids like popsicle stick crafts? If so, this Popsicle Stick Ballerina Craft is for them!
These adorable ballerina’s are quite simple to make if you follow a few simple steps. Get as creative as you can, using different prints of card stock, hair color, facial expressions, hand position, dress and shoe colors, etc. My daughter loved this craft and said this is by far her favorite craft we have done! My son loved it too. He got super creative and used googly eyes, made wacky hair (either planned or on purpose) and I’ll spare you the facial expression of his sweet-looking ballerina. But you get it…he was creative and had fun at the same time!
Take a look below for easy steps!

- Popsicle sticks (jumbo)
- Popsicle sticks (thin)
- Card stock (assorted prints)
- Hot glue gun
- Markers (assorted colors)
- Thin permanent marker
- Pipecleaners (brown, yellow)
- Flower scrapbooking embellishment (tiny)
- Craft scissors
- Lid (about 5″ in diameter)
Hot glue gun should be used by the adult only
- Begin by tracing a lid on the printed card stock and cutting it out. Fold in half, then the sides just a bit on each side, so it looks like a poofy skirt. Hot glue the bent ends so they don’t stick out. Cut the top part of the skirt, to insert the popsicle stick.
2. Next, using the colored markers and fine point permanent marker to draw the top portion of the dress, shoes and face.
3. Use the pipecleaner to make the hair by wrapping it over the top part of the popsicle stick and hot glue to secure. Hot glue the floral embellishment to the side of the hair (not pictured in photo below).
4. Next, insert the popsicle stick into your paper skirt so it meets the dress portion you drew. Hot glue to secure in place.
5. Lastly, cut the thin popsicle stick in half and hot glue to the back of the ballerina for hands.
