Geometric Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornament Craft
Yurp. I know that we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving yet…. and this
craft is for Christmas… but please bear with me. I was bored one
night and began playing around with leftover mini craft popsicle
sticks. After messing around with them for a bit, I came up with this
easy, geometric looking Christmas tree ornament.
It was really easy to make, so if you like the design, the kiddos can
certainly help out too. (Ooh. Did you notice the sequins? Bling
Here’s what I did:
- Mini Popsicle Sticks (I used 22)
- Scrap paper
- Paint Brush
- Paint (Shades of green and brown)
- Hot glue gun
- Parchment paper
- String or ribbon
1. Cover your work area. Paint 18 of your popsicle sticks
shades of green. Paint 4 of your popsicle sticks shades of brown. (I
only painted the front and the sides of the sticks, but you might want
to paint the backs too if your ornament is going to twirl around.)
2. Once your paint dries, begin hot gluing your sticks together. (I
made sure to hot glue on top of parchment paper so my glue won’t stick
to my work surface. Cheapie crapter tip: You can reuse this parchment
paper for other project too!) To ensure that my triangles looked the
same, I made one triangle first, then traced the corners onto the
parchment paper. I then used those corners as guidelines when hot gluing
3. Hot glue your “trunk” sticks on.
4. Hot glue your sequins onto the green triangles’ corners.
Smaller versions would like nice as ornaments or strung together as a
garland. Right now my bigger tree is just hanging outside of our door,
waiting for December.
