Ice Pop Holders
I have had ice pop holders on my list forever. I don’t know why I haven’t done it before now, because my kids are obsessed with frozen Gogurts and are always asking for a rag to wrap around it. Well, now that ice pop season is here (anyone else call them Otter Pops?), it was time to get them done.
I just love these, and my kids do too. They keep those cute little hands from freezing, and they look pretty darn cute at the same time! This is a super quick and simple project…the best kind!
ITEMS YOU NEED:
- hot glue
- heat transfer material OR fabric & heat ‘n bond
1. I used felt, because it’s easy to cut out, holds its shape, and is really durable. Plus it’s CHEAP! I spent .60 on two squares of felt, and it made 5 ice pop holders (with some left over). I cut it into rectangles, after I held it up to both an ice pop and a gogurt to check for width and height. Make sure to leave a little extra room on the sides for the glue.
2. Once I had the rectangles cut with a front and back for each holder, I used hot glue to glue them together. DO NOT USE LIQUID STITCH. I tried it first, and it was a disaster. I will probably end up doing mine over, because it ruined a few places on a couple of them, and it will drive me crazy. :) Glue really close to the edges, making sure to get into the corners.
3. Once the glue is dry, you can add your embellishments. Since I am in love with all things monogrammed, I added my kids’ initials, along with a small border on the front. (Century Gothic font, girls = ric rac border & boys = tiny dots border from Silhouette online store) On the back I added the same border, and a fun little “brrr…”.
Seriously people, 10 minutes. I love that.
