4th of July Popsicle Stick Flag Magnet Craft

This is a great looking 4th of July Popsicle stick flag craft you can use as a refrigerator magnet. Perfect for Independence Day.

  •  8 Popsicle sticks(craft sticks)
  • red, white, and blue paint, brushes
  • card stock or thin cardboard(cereal box)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • small rhinestones, craft jewels, or beads.
  • magnet strip


  1. Fist, cut a rectangle exactly the same size as the craft sticks lined up together.
  2. Beforehand, paint 4 Popsicle sticks red, and 4 white. Allow to dry. Or use pre colored craft sticks.
  3. Spread glue on the cardboard rectangle and glue on the Popsicle sticks in alternating colors. Allow to dry.
  4. Use tape to section off a small rectangle in the upper left corner of the flag. About 4 sticks and half the length is good.
  5. Paint the rectangle blue. Allow to dry.
  6. Glue on little rhinestones or jewels for stars. There don't have to be 50.
  7. Glue a magnet strip to the back and put on the refrigerator.
A correct flag has a red stripe at the top and bottom, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
