5 Creative Things to do with Popsicle Sticks

Looking for fun DIY projects at little cost? Well, once you are done enjoying your favorite tasty treats from our pop shop on college, or our Revolution Artisan Pops Factory at Revolution Market, here are 5 crafts that you can easily do with the leftover popsicle sticks:

1) Create a photo frame

This DIY project is super simple, but allows you to express your creativity. You can choose any shape for your frame (square, circle, star, etc.) and paint it however you would like. Other designs include additional decorations such as jewels or stickers. The possibilities are endless! Here’s a great link with instructions and more design inspiration.

2) Design a birdhouse

This project is going to test your inner architectural skills. Once you have saved up enough popsicle sticks, you will glue the individual sticks together in the style of a house (we recommend using super glue to ensure the longevity of your design). The size of the house is entirely up to your disclosure, but make sure the house contains a floor, at least three walls, and a roof. If you are looking to get extra creative, you can even design a small crate to hold birdseed for your feathered friends. Although this project will definitely take some time (plus a lot of popsicle sticks), the results will be worth it when you have your own unique birdhouse. Here’s a link to instructions!

3) Create drink coasters

Sick of seeing those water stains on all of your tables? Then this is the perfect DIY project for you! Simply arrange the popsicle sticks according to your design, glue them together, and voila! You have the perfect coaster for your beverages. If you want to go above and beyond, you can etch a design of your choosing into the coaster, but here’s instructions for a basic version!

4) Design a personalized bookmark

Instead of “dog-earring” the pages of your favorite books to save your place, why not try creating a bookmark? This requires only ONE popsicle stick. Express your creativity in designing your personalized bookmark; you can even glue a feather to the top of the stick to add an additional flare)! This DIY project can also make the perfect gift! Show your family and friends how much you love them by taking the time to decorate and personalize their very own bookmark. The possibilities for the design on this project are endless- here’s another variety!

5) Create your own ornaments

This project is perfect for the holiday season, but can also be fun to do year round! Simply create an ornament in the shape and style that you want and attach a string or ribbon. Once you are finished, find the perfect place to hang your new decoration (doorknob, patio, etc). Save your sticks now and start gearing up for December! Making the ornaments in the picture is pretty easy- if you feel like kicking it up a notch, try these popsicle stick Christmas trees or popsicle stick sled ornaments!

These projects are kid friendly, so don’t forget to have your little ones help you out, and if you try any of these crafts, let us know how they go- we would love to see your handiwork!

Healthy but Tasty

Picture this: It’s after dinnertime, you have just had an amazing meal, and now you are looking for a sweet treat to top it off. But, you also don’t want to let that workout you did 3 hours ago go to waste. Well look no further than Revolution Artisan Pops! Although other desserts, such as ice cream and cake, are delicious, they are not desserts that you want to be eating every night. However, our popsicles are natural and handmade with no dyes, refined sugars, or preservatives, making them the perfect, healthier go-to treat when you are craving something yummy.

Let’s look at the nutrition facts of our pops compared to other various desserts. One piece of chocolate cake contains a whopping 352 calories, 299 mg of sodium, and 51 g of carbohydrates. However, if you substitute our Nuance Dark Chocolate pop, containing 168 calories, 62 mg of sodium, and 8 g of carbohydrates, you will get the same mouthwatering chocolate-y flavor with much less nutritional guilt. Craving something fruity instead? Then give our Raspberry Hibiscus pop a try! This delicious summer flavor contains no fat OR cholesterol. Compared to Black Raspberry Ice Cream, which has 8 g of fat and 30 mg of cholesterol, you are getting a much healthier (and tastier) deal.

The Nuance Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Hibiscus pops are just two out of the 30+ flavors we have created at Revolution Artisan Pops – we have options for everyone! We strive to make our popsicles as healthy as possible so that you can treat your taste buds without being concerned about lapsing into a carbs/sugar high. All of our handmade flavors present the same satisfying taste as traditional desserts, but prove to be the healthier option. We also support other Colorado businesses by using as many local ingredients as possible- the Nuance Dark Chocolate uses cocoa powder from Fort Collin’s finest chocolatier, and the Raspberry Hibiscus uses tea from Happy Lucky’s Tea House! So next time you are craving a flavorsome snack to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than Revolution Artisan Pops, located at 208 S College Ave. Believe us; you will not be disappointed!

Fort Collins Brewers Olympics beer cup

Brewer’s Olympics- yay beer!

Last weekend, we served pops during the Fort Collins Beer Week Brewers Olympics! It was so much fun to watch the different breweries compete in the various events, which ranged from tug of war to a stylish entrance competition.

The obstacle course was a lot of fun to watch (you can see our tent in the background):

We had a blast serving up tasty pops, watching the competition, and of course, drinking some beer. We even got to take home some of these cool cups!
