Step 2: Carefully lift the pan from the stove and take out the Popsicle Sticks from the pan with the help of a tong. Put it aside until it cools down enough to handle .

Step 3: Once the Popsicle Sticks cools down, gently bend the sticks into an arch. Now place the bend stick inside a drinking glass so that it will hold its shape while it dries.
