5 Homemade Craft Stick Christmas Ornaments for Kids

This week I am happy to bring to you a week of ideas for
  Homemade Kids Christmas Ornaments

We had so much fun making all of our ornaments -
(even the hubby helped for some of our fun!)
& I truly hope you will be inspired to set aside some
family time to make some homemade ornaments for your tree
and/or to give as gifts to lucky family members/friends this year.

Today,  we proudly bring you
  5 Craft Stick Christmas Ornaments for Kids



The Lil Divas worked so hard on these over the weekend
and we are so pleased with how they turned out!
Can you say C-U-T-E?!


#1 
Craft Stick Reindeer Ornament


What You Need:
3 craft sticks
brown paint
paint brush
pom pom (nose)
wiggly eyes
glue
brown or black pipe cleaner 


What We Did:

1. Paint craft sticks brown & allow to dry



2. Once craft sticks are dry form a triangle with them & glue.

3. Point side down will be nose - glue pom pom there.

4. Add wiggly eyes (one on each side near top)

5. Form antlers from pipe cleaner -
I cut about 1/3 piece from end and then cut that in half to make additional antler  points. To set them in place, I wrapped them around the top craft stick.

We made Rudolph

and Clarice

To turn into an  ornament simply tie some ribbon onto the top 
& hang on your tree!

#2 
Craft Stick Tree Ornament



What You Need:
3 and 1/2 craft sticks
green & brown paint
paintbrush
glue
sequins


What To Do:
1. Paint 3 long craft sticks green & the 1/2 stick brown
and allow drying time



2. Using 3 green craft sticks form a triangle & glue in place.

3. Add brown craft stick to bottom as trunk



4. Decorate with sequins as desired.




To turn into an  ornament simply tie some ribbon onto the top 
& hang on your tree!

#3
Craft Stick Snowflake Ornament



What You Need:
4 craft sticks
white paint
paint brush
glitter


What To Do:
1. Paint craft sticks white & allow to dry


2. Form a t with 2 craft sticks - 
gluing them together in the middle.

3. Glue the other 2 craft sticks forming an x on top of the t.



4. Apply glue onto snowflake with a paintbrush


5. Add glitter as desired.


To turn into an ornament simply glue ribbon onto the back via the middle 
& hang on your tree!

#4
Craft Stick Snowman Ornament


What You Need:
8 craft sticks
black & white paint
paintbrushes
glue
wiggly eyes
small piece of orange foam, felt or paper
red foam, felt or paper
black pom poms or buttons



What To Do:
Note: I used a black sharpie to make a black line about 1/3 from the top
so the girls could easily distinguish between the space for the hat & face

1. Paint larger section of 6 craft sticks white



2. Paint top sections black



3. Paint remaining craft stick all black

Allow to dry



4. Glue the 6 white & black craft sticks together evenly


5. Glue black craft stick along the bottom of the black section
this is the rim of the snowman's top hat.

6. Add eyes, carrot nose and mouth of pom poms or buttons



7. Add piece of red felt, paper or foam above rim of hat.
8. Add a flower sequin if desired.


To turn into an ornament simply glue ribbon onto the back near the top 
& hang on your tree!


#5
Craft Stick Gingerbread House Ornament
Note: This was by far the trickiest ornament we made
but it was a fabulous parent/child collaboration project!

It took some trial & error but we finally came up with a 
design for the gingerbread house that we liked.

Here it is unpainted:


Here's What We Did:
1. Base & roof were made using 4 craft sticks
two were broken into halves as shown below.


2. To form base glue pieces to form a rectangle


3. Add remaining half pieces to top to form a triangle roof
as shown below


4. Using 2 craft sticks cover the long pieces of the rectangle
- this will hide the ends of the roof.


5. Add another craft stick under the top one
(see photo below)

6. Cut 3 craft sticks into halves and glue them from each side
This will give the effect of an open door.
(see 2nd photo below)



7. To close the roof I glued some small pieces of craft stick to the back


Finished house!



8. Allow to set then paint entire house brown


9. Allow to dry then adorn with fun stickers or foam
we used candy canes & peppermint candies



Our finished houses



To turn into an ornament simply tie ribbon through top 
(there was some space left) & hang on your tree!

I hope you enjoy making some of these craft stick ornaments!
I have to give a special thank you to CraftProjectIdeas.com
for suppling us with all these craft sticks as part of the rainy day kit
they sent us a few months ago. All the supplies they sent us
are definitely still going to some fun crafty use!
