I’m on a kick right now with popsicle sticks.

This popsicle stick snowflake ornament is so easy and fun. Once you make one, you just keep making more. It’s really become a problem ;)

Getting Started

One main reason I just LOVE using the popsicle sticks is because you get about 200 in a pack! You can get a lot of crafting done with that many popsicle sticks.

I found some stickers when looking through my crafting supplies. That’s when I spotted my “Jar-O-Buttons” and thought they would be a perfect addition. But you can add whatever you like to your snowflake.

Popsicle Stick Snowflakes: Getting Started

Step 1- Make Your Snowflake

I made my snowflake first by using my “Trusty” hot glue gun. There are so many designs out there, but I just stuck with the basic snowflake. Once my hot glue was dried, the kids were ready to get started with their crafting!!

Step 2 – Paint Your Popsicle Sticks

I really didn’t like any of the kids craft paint that I had, so I pulled out my regular craft paint. I found a some nice shimmery colors (and even added a little glitter paint to the mix). I had the boys cover their snow flakes as best they could and let dry.

Quick Tip: I let the popsicle sticks dry for about 15 minutes. But it really depends on how much paint they use. Sometimes my kids can get a little paint crazy and it takes a couple hours for their craft to dry.

Step 3 – Decorate Your Snowflake

You can really use whatever you want when decorating your snowflakes. I just recently stocked up on some buttons and thought they would look really cute to decorate our snowflakes with.

I let my oldest son decorate his snowflake all by himself, but my youngest needed a little help. I added the buttons on his snowflake myself.

By the end of this craft he was getting a little uncooperative so mama had to take over. I don’t think he minded, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was on.

I wasn’t able to get pictures of the kids making their snowflakes. I took these pictures afterwards. Sometimes getting pictures of the kids crafting is not the easiest.

Step 4 – Finishing Touches

Instead of using decorative ribbon I decided to hot glue a pipe cleaner to the back of my snowflake to hang on the tree. It worked out perfect!

I painted the first snowflake and my 4 year old did the middle. The last one was done by my 2 year old (with a little help from me).

All in all, I think my snowflakes turned out really cute. They’re a simple craft for the kids to do and the memories you make will last a lifetime.

When they are all gown up and pull out their ornaments, you can remember the times you spent making them. Make sure you date them on the back!!
