You know that scene from the movie “Trolls,” when Poppy and Branch are on their way to rescue their friends from the Bergens, and they camp for the night? Poppy sets up a collage of Popsicle Stick Frames with pictures of all the missing Trolls and it keeps expanding. That was the inspiration behind this Trolls Craft. As soon as I saw that scene, the first time we watched Trolls in the theater, I knew that my daughter and I would have to make a “Poppy Frame” of our own. So I started gathering the supplies, and my plan was to have a special “Trolls night” with my girl as soon as the movie came out on DVD.
I found a set of Trolls stickers at Joann Fabrics. The rest of the supplies we bought from the Dollar Tree. I also picked up this amazing find, a plastic veggies and dip tray to hold all of our craft supplies. I have reused this dollar store treasure many times since for other art and craft projects and sensory activities.
The week that Trolls hit the Red Box, I surprised my daughter with a special “Mommy/Sissy” Day. We rented the movie, made our craft, and also created a yummy treat to enjoy, Trolls Marshmallow Pops.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her special day and spent a long time making her Poppy Popsicle Stick Frames with pictures of her favorite Trolls and tons of decorative embellishments. Here’s what we used:
- colored popsicle sticks
- colored cardstock to back the frames
- Trolls stickers
- paper cutouts (cut from my Cricut, left over from another project)
- butterfly charms
- pom poms
- glue (I used a hot glue gun for the frames and my daughter used Elmer’s glue for the decorations)
Here’s a screen shot of Poppy’s Frames and some fun pictures of my daughter’s creation.
