I’m thinking of making popsicles be a part of our main food group all year round. They’re just delicious. And they’re colorful. And they’re fun. Win. Win. Win. Make a simple backdrop with popsicles cut from colorful paper, and your photos will seriously “pop”. (Bad jokes are my specialty.)
• colorful cardstock
• scissors and X-acto knife or cutting machine (I used a Cricut Explore, but you can totally do this without!)
• mini wooden clips
• crazy-eyed baby (optional)
Find a simple popsicle silhouette online. I just searched BING and found a zillion. Print the image out and trace it onto your paper. Cut out 25-30 or more depending on the size of the wall you’ll be taping these to.
Once the popsicles are all cut out, attach them to strands of twine with the mini wooden clips. Hang the popsicles in any order you see fit. Stick a crazy kid in front and start snapping the camera.
Now, the baby and I are off to find some popsicle treats that won’t effect our waistline.
