Christmas Truck Popsicle Stick Ornament
I love making ornaments, it’s so fun! I was looking for something to make with some preschool aged kids and I saw this awesome idea. I loved it so much that I knew that I wanted to do something similar for my Sunbeam class (it’s a Sunday school class with kids that are ages 3 to 4). My plan is to have the Christmas truck popsicle stick ornament mostly put together before Sunday and then they can decorate them and put the picture in and give them to their parents for Christmas. I of course wanted to make one for myself too and for our tree, so I made up one real quick with a picture of my cute kids :).
Here is a video to show you the process of how I made it. As you can see, it is super easy to make. This took me about 5 minutes to make!
This is how I made it:
I started with some red popsicle sticks. You can by them around red or you could paint them. I found them at the Dollar Tree. I then used some black buttons, my glue gun and then a cute bottle brush that I got from the Dollar Tree. It was on a truck ornament, so it was the perfect size for this. You could also use little bottle bush trees from Target or Hobby Lobby.
The first thing I did was place the popsicle sticks in the shape of a truck. I cut one for roof of the truck and I glued that on first. Then I glued on the two that go horizontal.
I cut off the tips of the bottom two sticks and then glued the buttons on for wheels.
I then used one of those tips and put it onto the back of the horizontal sticks, to make the back of the Christmas truck. Then I glued the cut little bottle brush tree onto the truck.
I then glued the picture on the back of the popsicle sticks. I used a wallet sized picture, it was the perfect size for inside the window.
I then added some baker’s twine and glued that to the back of the picture. I tied a knot in the twine so there was more surface area to glue onto the picture. Then I put 2018 on the door, to look like the handle.
And that’s it! Isn’t it so cute?! I love how it turned out and I can’t wait to make more with my kids!
