Hey there! It’s Shauna from Ella and Annie. The countdown begins, only 31 days until Christmas! To help you get in the Christmas spirit and keep your kiddos busy, I wanted to share a fun and easy Christmas craft. This popsicle stick Christmas tree craft is a perfect last minute craft, that you may already have the supplies for. Get creative with what you have on hand.
What you need:
Wood Markers or Paint
Some alternative supplies may be pom poms, markers, paint, craft buttons, glitter. Really, anything your little hearts desire!
How to make a Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Craft
Color one side of 7-9 popsicle sticks green. Color one popsicle stick brown for the the tree trunk. You will only need 6 green popsicle sticks if you do not want to fill in the spaces on the back of the tree.
Glue three of the green popsicle sticks into a triangle as shown below. Glue the brown popsicle on the bottom of the triangle for the tree trunk. Feel free to trim one end of the brown popsicle stick to make it shorter. Glue the trimmed end behind the tree, leaving the smooth untrimmed end at the base.
Glue three more green popsicle sticks to the front of the triangle as shown below to fill in the tree, placing each stick at an angle to fill the front of the tree.
Trim 4 additional green popsicle sticks and glue to the back of the tree to fill in any empty spaces.
Add gold sequins at the top of the popsicle stick tree for the star. Glue assorted colors on the remaining tree for the lights.
That’s it! Pretty simple, right? Your kids can use their popsicle stick Christmas tree in a puppet show, add a magnet to the back and display on your fridge or even hot glue a clothespin to the back and use to hang your holiday cards!
I wouldn’t say this is a craft just for kids. Imagine the gorgeous popsicle stick Christmas trees you could make with larger craft sticks, white paint and a little sparkle. Add them to your home decor or Christmas village. The trees without the trunk would also make a cute garland for your child’s room or fireplace mantel.
I hope you enjoy making this popsicle stick Christmas tree craft! Thanks for having me, Lindi! I hope to be back soon with some more exciting crafts!
