Cut a popsicle stick into thirds with the scissors. Line up 4 popsicle sticks evenly. Stretch out three glue dots to go onto the back of each of the cut popsicle sticks. Use this to secure the 4 popsicle sticks together.

If you don’t want to use glue dots, replace them with hot glue and do the same steps as above.
