Christmas crafts are a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit and keep the kids busy.
This craft gets them outside collecting sticks and a
guaranteed hour of quiet as they assemble these ornaments.
You only need a few supplies which makes it a great travel craft and
you can make as many as you want cause they make great gifts for
grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends!
You will need…
Popsicle sticks (or use a slightly larger branch for the base)
Glue (I used a hot glue gun to help assemble,
older kids can safely use one themselves ,
but for younger kids, clear Elmer’s glue works best)
Various decorative pieces
Beads, Buttons, Ric rac, Ribbon, etc
Twine or heavy duty ribbon for hanging.
Start with either a Popsicle stick or thicker branch as your base.
Take the other branches and starting at the top glue straight down, leaving a stump.
Then with scissors we cut the sides to make the edges assemble a tree.
Once dry, let the kids decorate to their hearts content!
After the decorations are dry, flip over and glue a piece of twine for a hanger.
The perfect addition to any Christmas tree, whether it’s RV sized or not.
