Make a Fun Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornament

So last year I was on this popsicle stick ornament kick. I thought making a popsicle stick Christmas Tree would be pretty easy for the kids to do. And it was a cute ornament the boys could display on the Christmas tree.

I love having the kids make ornaments for the tree. Last year we also made these cute popsicle stick snowflakes and popsicle stick reindeer!!

Getting Started

I grabbed some popsicle sticks, green paint, ribbon and a big assortment of buttons for our Christmas Trees.

This was a craft I did last year with my boys. I didn’t get any step by step pictures so this is me “recreating” it!

Step 1 – Create Your Tree

I used the popsicle sticks and created a triangle for the outline of our Christmas trees. I hot glued the triangle together so we didn’t have to wait for the glue to dry. My boys were ready to get crafting!!

I broke a couple popsicle sticks to make the bottom of our Christmas Tree. I used my scissors to cut them straight across, so that I wouldn’t have any jagged edges.

Step 2 - Paint Your Tree

I gave each boy a bowl of green and brown paint and had them paint their popsicle sticks. We let dry for 15 minutes.

Step 3 – Decorate Your Tree

Once the paint dried, I gave the boys some buttons and pom pom balls. My four year old was able to make the glue dots and place his buttons on all by himself.

My 2 year old needed a little help with his tree. I made the glue dots myself and he was able to place the pom pom balls on top of the glue.

Step 4 – Finishing Touches

I added some colorful ribbon to the top to hang on the tree. Voila, a great homemade ornament for your tree.

Once we were done my oldest was pretty proud to display his ornament on the tree. That’s why I love crafting with my boys. I love seeing their faces when they’re done. They are so proud of what they made and excited to show their Dad.

Side Note: If want even more Christmas keepsakes, you should look at this adorable handprint snowmen ornament I made with the boys.

I think next year I’m going to dedicate a tree for the boys room and put all the decorations they made on it!
