These Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornaments are the perfect craft for toddlers through younger elementary aged children. My daughters made them one year as a Christmas craft for their teachers and grandparents. They were so proud to give a gift that they handmade and the recipients were so touched.
These ornaments are fun for the kids to make and to give.
Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornaments
- 2 sizes of Popsicle sticks
- craft glue
- sparkles, confetti, or stickers
- pipe cleaners or ribbon
Carefully cut the smaller Popsicle sticks with sharp scissors into various sizes as in the photo below. Glue the pieces onto a bigger stick making a tree formation.
Allow the glue to dry and then have your children paint the trees. Be sure to lay down newspaper to prevent any spills or smears.
Allow the paint to dry. (The purple tree is my three year old’s creation.)
Decorate trees with stickers or confetti pieces. Once the glue is dry, wrap a ribbon or pipe cleaner around the top branch to create a hanger.
