Create a four sided jewelry box with wooden matches, popsicle sticks and water based craft glue. Build the sides of the jewelry box to any dimension by stacking horizontal wooden matches in a vertical row. Whenever you are crafting with wooden matches and glue, cover your work surface with wax paper. Spread glue onto the sides of the wooden matches that are facing up, then place two flat popsicle sticks on top to hold the side panel together. You can cut the popsicle sticks with a craft knife to fit the height of the jewelry box sides. Make four side panels, then attach them at the corners with craft glue. Make the bottom panel and lid using the same construction techniques.
Wooden match crosses are popular craft projects. Crafters often prefer to use matchsticks with burnt heads, rather than the headless matches, for this project because the burnt heads add design interest to the finished project. Cut out a cardboard cross to use as a backing for the wooden matches. To make the cross, glue four sets of seven matches side by side so that the heads form a V shape. Make four sets of five matches, also with V shaped heads. Glue two of the seven sets in a vertical row to the cardboard to make the bottom line of the cross; the V should be facing the bottom. Glue the heads of one set on top of the bottoms of the second set. Glue another seven set to the cardboard to make the top of the cross; the V shape should be at the top. Glue the remaining two seven sets to create the sides of the cross. Glue the four five sets diagonally at the center of the cross.
Make a four sided planter using wooden matches and popsicle sticks. Create the four sides of the planter by gluing vertical matches side by side for the desired width of the planter. Stack the rows to the desired height of the planter. Put the stacked rows together by gluing popsicle sticks to the back side. Glue the four sides together at the corners. Create the bottom of the planter with connected popsicle sticks or with a piece of cardboard. Punch drainage holes in the bottom and line the inside of the wooden match planter with plastic before planting.
