Start with two popsicle sticks and place vertically and parallel to each other.
Then with your other popsicle sticks put a dab of glue on either side of the stick and start gluing them horizontally to the 2 vertical sticks.
Once they are all glued on and the glue is dry paint the popsicle sticks. (we used light pink)
While the paint is drying gather 6 more popsicle sticks and cut them in half. Since the popsicle sticks I used were thin it was very easy to cut them.
Grab two halves of the popsicle sticks that were cut and form the letter L and glue. Using 4 halves form the letter O and glue. Using 2 halves form the letter V and then use 4 halves for the letter E and glue.
After the glue has dried on your letters you can then paint them (we painted them red) and glue the letters onto your painted "board" of popsicle sticks.
Lastly you can decorated them any way you like. This is the step where children can really use their creativity and make it truly unique. Tape some string to the back and it serves as a cute wall hanging.
