How to Make a Popsicle Stick Tribal Quilt
 

Kids will have fun painting popsicle sticks with bright vibrant colors and then adding detailed symbols and marks to make this eye catching tribal quilt.
 
How to Make a Popsicle Stick Tribal Quilt
 
You Will Need:
 
popsicle sticks
craft paint in many colors
felt
basic arts and crafts supplies
 
 
       
 
Line up the popsicle sticks so that you have as close to a square shape as possible. For this size popsicle stick, I needed eight sticks. The eight sticks make one square.

Since this is going to be a 4-square tribal quilt, you will need four sets of eight sticks.

Take the first set of eight popsicle sticks and paint a base coat using bright colors.

(I did each of my four squares very different. I wanted this to look as close to a real quilt as possible so I painted each of my squares in very different vibrant colors. One set I did in the blue and teal shades, another in black, cream, and green, another in pink, orange, and yellow, and my final one in black, red, yellow, and white. I wanted each square to look like a different piece of fabric.)

Once the base coat is done and dried add detailed symbols, signs, and marks on the sticks. Some ideas that I did were; dots, lines, the letter x, the letter s, check marks, zigzag formations, squiggly line formations, flowers, circles, and more. Be creative!
After all sets of squares are painted and dried it is time to assemble your quilt. Start by cutting a piece of felt large enough to fit all four squares on it.

Arrange your first set by gluing on the sticks in all one direction on one corner of the felt. Glue them tightly together.

Next, glue on your other set of sticks into a square having the sticks go the opposite direction as shown.
Glue on the other two sets of sticks in the same manner as shown. Once they are all glued on, trim the felt close to the edge of the sticks as shown. If you have pinking shears, they will work and look the best. If not, plain scissors will work just fine.
Now you can hang or display your tribal quilt in your home!
