DIY Popsicle Sticks Puzzle Photo Gift Idea

Gifts don’t have to be expensive to be beautiful, what’s important is the thought and intention behind the gift, personally, I appreciate handmade rather than store-bought ones. They are just more meaningful knowing that the person who gave them made an effort to make that gift with you in their mind. So, if you also want to show your loved one your appreciation and affection, try making this super easy and cool gift idea that only requires some popsicle sticks and a photo! Learn how with this amazing video tutorial by CRAFTASTIC ARTS & GIFTS on YouTube.


  • Popsicle sticks
  • Printed photo
  • Ruler
  • Clear tape or any tape
  • X-Acto knife
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Ribbon


Step 1

Lay out the popsicle sticks on a flat surface making sure their quantity is enough to fit the photo you will be using, then adjust their spaces so that they are right next to each other leaving no gap in between each stick, and hold them together using clear tape or any tape. Flip it over to the clear or right side, then apply a generous amount of glue all over the back of the photo, and adhere it to the popsicle sticks.

Step 2

Let the glue dry completely and remove the tape at the back, then grab a ruler and use it to guide your X-Acto knife, and start cutting the photo apart making sure to follow the cut of the sticks. Gather the sticks together in a bunch, then wrap them together with a ribbon, and you’re done!
