Make Stickers Out of Your Favorite Drawings

To make stickers, you will need

  • Paper
  • Coloring pencils or pens 
  • Clear tape 
  • Wax paper 
  • Scissors 

Instructions for Making Homemade Stickers


Using felt tips or colored pencils, draw your favorite things. Cut out the outline of the pictures you want to turn into stickers. 

Step 2

Cover a piece of wax paper with clear tape. 

Step 3

Place the picture cutout on top of the clear tape and cover it with another piece of tape. Press down to ensure that the tape adheres to the drawing. 

Step 4

Cut around the edge of the sticker, leaving a border of sticky tape around the drawing as it holds the sticker together. 

Step 5

When you are ready to use your sticker, peel away the wax paper backing. If it doesn’t come away quickly, an adult can score the back of the paper with scissors and peel off the wax paper from the tear. 

Step 6

If you need more time to be ready to use the sticker, peel off the wax paper. Take a large piece of wax paper and apply all your stickers. When you are ready to sticker any surface, it will be easier to remove it from this sheet!
