Wooden Stick Christmas Tree Ornament {Kids Craft}

Disclosure: I was given product to create this craft with, all opinions, ideas and content are 100% my own.
I love to use the wooden craft sticks with my kids’ crafts.  My kids love them and they are so easy to use, plus there are so many things that you can do with them!  This month at Craft Project Ideas, the wooden sticks are the material of the month.  So all month they will be posting ideas on what to so with them.  This is what I came up with: Christmas tree ornaments.

To make them, I used the colors craft sticks, glitter glue, jewels and star beads.

I let my kids do all the creating.  If I were to do these myself, I would have used a glue gun.  First we cut the sticks into different sizes, glued them onto one stick and then decorated them.  I used a blow dryer to help the glue set in between each step.

Once they were all dry, I added a little baker’s twine with a glue gun.  I think they turned out so cute and the kids had a blast making them!
