How to make Christmas ornaments using sticks
Start by cutting or breaking your sticks.
You will want to make them smaller and smaller to create a tree shape.
Then cut your wet foam so your sticks hang over the edges a bit.
If your paint is thicker thin it out will a little bit of water first. Then dip both sides of each stick and place back in the foam.
Tilt your paint a bit to get up the sides more if you need.
Now over your paper bowl add glitter to both sides of your sticks.
Make sure to do this when the paint is still a bit wet.
Give your sticks plenty of time to dry. using hot glue assemble your tree.
Add clear string for hanging with a bit of glue.
Your kids will LOVE creating these fun tree-shaped Christmas ornaments. From collecting the sticks to giving them as gifts.
