If you are looking for an inexpensive Christmas craft that is great for kids, I have the answer for you!
Craft Stick Christmas Trees!
Supplies needed to create your own stick Christmas tree craft:
- Craft sticks (standard size)
- Large Wooden Spools
- Craft Paint ( I used Party Pink, Citrus Green, and Island Blue)
- Puffy Paint (I used White)
- Foam Brush
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Using your pliers, snip off the ends of each craft stick. Make sure you have the craft sticks up against the cutting area of the pliers.
If the pliers left rough edges, you can hit them with some sandpaper to smooth them down.
I used two coats of paint.
Admire your colorful mess.
Using puffy paint, dab “ornaments” onto your tree.
I made my star using silver Glitter Silk Core’dinations Cardstock, and this (link below) tutorial for folding a 3D paper star.
Repeat for as many trees as you would like to create!
