For people who enjoy building objects out of toothpicks and those who enjoy looking at said objects.

1) If you post pictures of someone else's creation, be sure to clearly credit them for their hard work. If you have something else toothpick related (holders, specific glues, tips and tricks) feel free to post them too.

2) Do not claim some one else's creation as your own.

3) Stay calm. Stay cool. Don't harsh anyone's mellow.

4) Community is still in the making, suggestions sent directly to /u/ChalkChick0 are appreciated and will be read and (if usable) implemented. Thank you in advance

5) Original pieces are encouraged and welcome at all levels. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, we would love to see your pieces!

6) And finally, please keep all posts SFW and suitable for all ages.


A Few questions and answers from Stan Munro's FAQ page (no affiliation with this subreddit)


What kind of toothpicks do you use? Round, square-centered toothpicks, found in most grocery stores.

We also allow Popsicle sticks, Wooden matches, wooden clothes pins, and other tiny lumber as construction materials.

What kind of glue do you use? Elmer’s glue, regular. (not the "school glue").

What's inside of the structures? Cardboard? Nothing. All of the buildings are hollow and re-inforced with minimal toothpick supports--if any. Toothpicks and glue are a pretty strong combination (much stronger than cardboard).

How do you transport them? Very carefully. No, really. Tons of bubble wrap, tuck in your shirt and your shoelaces so you don‘t trip. One wrong move and it’s over. The really big ones are built in pieces to assemble at site, but still… very… very… carefully.

Flavoured toothpicks...

So I'm really into flavoured toothpicks and have a few brands already, buuuuut, I wanna make my own too. Everywhere I see says to use oils, like essential oils, but I'm wondering can it be done with food flavourings?

u/KernelThieh made a HotD-inspired dragon with sticks, leaves, and hot glue. I think it fits here.

Anyone knows where I can buy Canadian toothpicks in Canada?

Please inform me if you know such grocery store. I have tried unsuccesfully to find a grocery store that sells toothpicks not made in China. I don't want to buy them or any product that could affect my health&safety; as it would any thinking & informed Canadian citizen would want to avoid buying any product made in oppressive and or populous countries because they tend to have lower health & safety standards and very hard to whistle-blow against because of high censorship; so riskier but undercover

Anyone know where to find high quality birch wood toothpicks?

I'm trying to make my own bourbon toothpicks, similar to the ones Daneson make. The problem is the tiny 2.5 inch toothpicks that everyone sells aren't thick enough to really soak up and hold onto the flavor.

Has anyone tried maying flavored toothpicks before? And if so, what toothpicks did you use?

Found this in a small town museum today. Made by a prisoner in Angola prison out of match sticks and pebbles from prison grounds. (from r/Prisonwallet)

Does anyone use toothpicks in their mouths in this sub, or is it all toothpick art?

Asked b/c Amazon has "Tea Tree Therapy - Tea Tree & Menthol Toothpicks (100 count)" with crazy low prices. One pack of 100 sticks is $5.75, a 6 pack (600 toothpicks) costs $28.19 BUT, a 12 pack (=1200 sharp, delicious and "healthy mouth" picks) for less than the 600. It's $26.58, no shipping, no tax. That's even nice to make art from - it'll add a layer of delightful scent to whatever you are doing (when you are not masochistically making absolutely certain that very possible space between any two teeth has been groped, poked and maybe even bloodied in the process). Mmmmm.
