We love popsicle stick crafts around my house. With a little creativity, you can turn a few popsicle sticks into just about anything! In this post, I am going to show you how to turn popsicle sticks into a hot cocoa mug craft.

Supplies Needed:

Dark Brown & Assorted Color Paint or Paint Pens 


White Paint Pen or Marker

Regular Popsicle Sticks 

Small Popsicle Sticks 

Small Piece of Cardboard

Additional Decor as Desired 

Hot Glue Gun & Glue


Evenly line up 7 regular size popsicle sticks to make the popsicle stick hot cocoa mug.

Using a hot glue gun, run a line of hot glue the entire length of a small popsicle stick & press it horizontally onto one end of the 7 sticks – repeat this step on the other end as well.

Flip the newly made board over and lightly trace out a half circle section at the top for the hot cocoa section, paint this section brown.

Paint the remaining space your desired mug color.

Using the cardboard, cut out a handle shape and paint it with the same mug color.

When both are dry, attach the handle to the mug from the back.

Use the white paint pen or marker to draw marshmallows in the hot cocoa section of the mug.

Using the other assorted colors and/or craft decor, decorate your mug as desired
