All you need are a few popsicle sticks, a hot glue gun, and some decorations and you’ll have a great Christmas tree ornament put together in no time. If you’re working with really young kids, it’s a great idea to use a little tacky glue for them to put their ornament together how they’d like, then you can go back in and tack it together with hot glue.

We all know hot glue guns can be painful, so we don’t want to let very young kids use them. I keep mine up high in the kitchen at my home daycare, and then when I need to use it, I know none of the kids can get burned. But I do let them make their own designs and then I just secure it for them.

I love to see kids be creative making their own process art in their own way! So I don’t care if they turn out like snowflakes or something completely different. As long as the child is proud of what they make. But parents do enjoy getting something home sometimes that looks like something, so I also don’t mind doing crafts once in a while too. It’s all about balance.

  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue or hot glue gun
  • Ribbon or twine to hang the ornament

  • Using the craft glue or glue gun, attach two of the popsicle sticks together so they make a “+”. Repeat with the remaining two popsicle sticks. Now attach the two “+” pieces but rotate one so they make a snowflake.
  • Place snowflake on a paper plate or parchment paper. Using a foam brush and Mod Podge or the spray adhesive, cover the snowflake completely.
  • Coat the snowflake liberally with the glitter. Allow to dry completely.
  • Using the craft glue or glue gun, attach your pom pom to the middle of the snowflake. Cut a 6” length of ribbon or twine, form a loop and using the craft glue or glue gun, attach to the top of the back side of the craft stick. Allow to dry completely before hanging.
