According to collector and White Plains resident, Joyce Schenker, her “Vintage American Popsicle Stick Folk Art” exhibit [April-May 2017] from the 1930s and 1940s were income projects done by both the boy scouts and girl scouts. Housewives also created these practical objects from the discarded remains of ice cream treats in the same way we think of using recycled paper, plastic and other household waste today. Pintrest is full of ideas for contemporary Popsicle Stick DIY projects. Many become wall art from the discarded sticks. After having had a splash of color makeover and other commercially found craft pieces carefully glued in place, the modern Haagen-Dazs becomes a unique wonder worthy of craft fairs. Popsicle Stick Art has become less the resourceful necessity of the Depression Era turned basket or lamp shade to an accessorized home piece of modern art.
