How To Make A Christmas Tree Craft

Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornament Craft

This is a great project for ages 4-7.  Easy to do, minimal cleanup and the supplies are easy to find at any dollar store or craft shop.  I used vintage buttons I had on hand to do mine but you can buy packs of mixed buttons from a dollar store, craft shop or from any fabric store.  I bought these little plastic snow flakes from the dollar store and my daughter then wouldn't look at any other options to decorate her tree as she's a bit of a die hard "Frozen" fan!  She was calling them "Elsa tree's after she was

*Popsicle sticks in various colours or plain
*20-30 buttons or pom poms or sequins (this project can have many variations if you have certain things on hand)
*school glue

Glue your Popsicle sticks to form a triangle by putting small dots of glue on each corner and over lapping the sticks.  Then place one down the centre to create the tree's trunk.

Put small dots of glue about 1 inch apart all along your tree shape and along the trunk, add one button to each glue dot and leave to dry overnight. Try and not move the tree until it's totally dry as it might fall apart.

Put the ribbon on it by threading it through the middle trunk stick near the top of the tree and making a knot.

Hang on tree and enjoy year after year!
