Coffee stir stick container

I've long been a fan of using popsicle sticks in craft projects, so it's no surprise that back in my days of working at a coffee shop I actually bought a whole box of wooden stir sticks from my employers.  And when I saw this awesome container made out of them, I immediately added the project to my ever growing to-make list.  However, you don't have to go out and buy them in order to have enough for this project; each time Scott from What I Made grabbed himself a cup of coffee, he saved his stir stick instead of throwing it in the garbage.  If you are as addicted to the stuff as I am, you'll have a collection of them in no time!  (If this project looks familiar, you might have seen it when it was featured in Make Magazine!)  [how to make a coffee stir stick container]

Project estimate:

  • Coffee stir sticks, on hand
  • Wooden beads, on hand or $1
  • Soda can, on hand
  • Wire, on hand or $1
  • Glue, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  Free and up!
