Make an easy DIY popsicle holder and save yourself a headache and a huge mess. These ABC, Always Be Chillin' Free Printables are perfect to add to your Summer treat.
These homemade popsicle holders are so easy and quick to make. These popsicle holders will catch all your drips and keep your hands from being a complete mess. They're reusable popsicle holders that a quick straight-line stitch is all there really needs to be done.
You can personalize these popsicle holders however you like. Using some Iron-On Vinyl that you've cut with your Cricut or Silhouette would be perfect for a project like this.
How to make your own Popsicle Holder
Begin by cutting your coordinating fabrics and Pellon into 2.5″ x 12″ pieces. Then take your Pellon and sandwich it in between the fabrics. Sew both sides and if you'd like, sew the top and bottom.
Next, you'll want to create your hole for your tag. You can use a Crop-a-Dile Big Bite but this step is totally optional. I just pierced the hole and then put a brad in the middle and pressed.
Next, line up the edges and sew again. I left a 1″ tab on the top just for a contrast in the fabrics. Cut the edges using pinking sheers or you can use standard scissors, just be wary of fraying.
If you don't have pinking shears for your Popsicle Holder, just use some hem glue and it'll keep your edges nice and solid.
After you've sewn up the sides, add your popsicle and your gift tag. Pass them out, wash them when they're dirty and reuse them. Such a good alternative to a paper towel and great for our environment.

I just pretty much did whatever the fabric would let me do with this project, be creative and do whatever you'd like for your own custom DIY popsicle holder. Happy Summer and Happy Sewing!
Let's also settle a debate, what do you call them? I call them otter pops and my husband has always called them ice blocks. The ice block is rubbing off on my kids and I don't know if I can handle that 😉
DIY Popsicle Holders are the perfect summer DIY and will last all year long.
