If my kids could craft through the twenty-five days of Christmas, they definitely would! I currently have assorted hand-drawn and stickered Christmas decorations adhered to almost every wall in the house, compliments of my four excited kiddos. The triplets have a tree in their room for the first time this year, and we took advantage of a recent cold weather snap to stay in and craft a few ornaments for their tree. Call me crazy, but I even let them pull out the glitter and glue!
Supplies for the Glitter Craft Stick Christmas Tree Ornament:
- Covering to protect crafting surface
- Green craft stick (Any size will do. Find them in sizes from skinny to jumbo!)
- Yellow pom
- Green glitter
- Sequins (varying colors)
- Brown card stock or small piece of card board
- Optional: hot glue gun and glue stick
Steps to Make:
To make this cute Christmas tree craft stick ornament, secure three craft sticks together with the adhesive.
Optional: To ensure ornament longevity, I will often adhere the base of the ornament with hot glue and a hot glue gun. This is totally optional, but it will dry faster and allow the child to be able to decorate it sooner. The hot glue gun will also secure the twine ornament hanger better. If the hot glue gun option is used, make sure this step is done by an adult only!
Apply a thin coat of clear adhesive on all three sides of the triangle, smearing to cover the craft sticks. Sprinkle an ample amount of glitter over the adhesive.
Continue using the clear adhesive to apply the sequins as tree ornaments and the yellow pom as a star. Adhere the brown card stock as a trunk and twine on the back for an ornament hanger.
Once all adhesives have dried, the Christmas Tree craft stick ornament is ready to hang on the tree.
