would it splinter the wood though? Hmmm might have to try that if I run out of flat toothpicks :D. Thank you for your idea!

These are cute. <3 chopsticks.

One can also use natural broom straw for the round ones. Or old backyard/field grass stems, though I think the latter tend to have larger piths/cores. They paint/varnish alright (bit slippery) and some don't take to staining well. But they show a pretty natural grain when they do take.

Very true, but it might be a little more difficult for me XD, cause it seems harder to make each chopstick the same size. With a toothpick, I just split it down the middle, but with a popsicle stick, might either have to measure or split it 4-5 times equally XD. Definitely good for bigger pieces though!
