Stick Shelves

DIY display shelves


  • 2 packs of over 70 large/jumbo crafts sticks each (get a 500 sticks bag here)
  • White glue or craft glue
  • Stain (can also use brown craft paint and water)
  • Foam paint brush


  • Start with 6 craft sticks and make a polygon. You need to look at the photo below to see how the sticks overlap each other in a particular way. Every opposite one will either be over the others or under the others on either side. You must follow this pattern.

  • Place drops of glue on the ends of the sticks that are sitting on top of the others. Add craft sticks, then repeat this process again.

  • Continue gluing the sticks in the same pattern and as you go, make sure that the corners are almost perfectly even and smooth.

  • Once you use a package of craft sticks you will have a depth of about 3 inches. At this point you stop building and set this one aside.

  • Take the second bag and use 6 sticks to make a triangle. Look at the photo below to make sure that the sticks are in the correct position, one overlapping the next.

  • Continue gluing the craft sticks as you did in the polygon making sure that the corners and edges are flush as you go. Continue until this triangle frame is the same width as the other.

  • Set both frames out overnight so that the glue can dry completely.

  • Get your stain and brush, or you can mix a little brown paint with water.

  • Use the brush to deposit the stain on all areas of the frame. Get in the groves of the sticks as well so that everything looks evenly coated.

  • Let these dry overnight and in the morning they will be ready to hang.
