The trees are up in the kids bedrooms and they are ornament obsessed! They decorate their bedrooms trees with homemade ornaments each year and have been asking to make more ornaments since we made our angel ornaments last week. So yesterday we made popsicle stick snowflake ornaments!
We started by gluing three craft sticks on top of each other (above) to form the snowflake shape. We used these funky shaped ones we had leftover from making mini bow and arrows.
Then they painted the sticks with a paint brush. They wanted to add glitter to the paint to see if it would make it sparkly. It worked a little bit with the purple and blue paint, but was a total bust in the white.
So, after they painted the snowflakes we added lots of silver glitter!
Once they were dry I hot glued twine to the top and they hung them on their trees!
Do your kids like to make ornaments? What will you decorate your snowflake ornaments with?
