Cute origami popsicle tutorial! Perfect for summertime themed craft projects. You can decorate these ice lollies however you like! They are made with 1 or more sheets of square paper, no glue required.
Ok so it’s actually winter here in Australia right now! However where I live it’s not very cold at all… and I know it’s summer for a lot of you guys.
These are origami icy poles – what most people in Australia call them, also known as Paddlepops!
I asked people on instagram what they are called where they are from, so far I have been informed that they go by Ice Sticks, Paletas de Hielo, Morozhenoye, Water-ijsjes and Eis am Stiel!
What are they called where you are from?
If you are lucky enough to find origami paper with brown on one side and a colour on the other side that would be perfect, otherwise, use brown coloured origami paper with white on the back. You can decorate them however you like.
You may notice a tree emerge at one point, that’s because this origami model was originally supposed to be a tree. 🌳 Yep.
I saw that it looked like a popsicle, a tree tutorial will also be posted at some point.
There are plenty of items this origami model could be: a corn dog or chicken drumstick 🍗, a bottle – upside-down, a bat or tennis racket 🏓 etc.. 😄
I have to mention that this origami popsicle was inspired by Kamikey’s origami ‘Ice Pop’. Especially the method of using extra paper to decorate it. Her ice lolly is also very cute, Kamikey’s channel is here. 🙂
The washi tape I used at the end is from Blippo.com – they have a great selection of decorative tapes:
