Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments

It’s that time of year again, time to make holiday ornaments. This year the kids decorated popsicle sticks, aka wooden craft sticks, to look like snowflakes.

I think they turned out really well and were super easy to make. First I spray painted white all of the sticks that we would be using. No way I wanted to turn this into a huge multi day painting projects with small children.

Once the sticks were painted a little dab of wood glue in the center allows you to stack 3 sticks on top of each other fanned out to look like an asterisk (*). The kids could help with this step although I did take the liberty of realigning them somewhat to make them more even.

After the glue was dry I used some glitter spray paint to give it some extra umph.

Once it was all dry we used embellishments from the scrapbook section of Hobby Lobby to decorate them.

They were so easy and turned out much better than I had hoped!
