Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments

It's November, which to many over-enthusiastic holiday lovers means CHRISTMAS! Yes, I love Thanksgiving as well—it's just one big holiday celebration for me from now to the end of the year. So far, I've refrained from putting up my Christmas tree, but that doesn't mean I can't prepare, right? This past weekend, I spent some time making some ornaments. I love to create handmade ornaments to add to my little tree each year. 
Lately I've been interested in popsicle stick crafts. I found some super cute ideas on Pinterest (see the links to my Holiday Crafts and Food board and specific posts below). I like that such a simple material can have so many possibilities. Just add paint and glue!
I was able to get my kids involved for part of my craft day. They are ages 2 and 3, so they didn't do much beyond just paint a few popsicle sticks. I turned these painted sticks into little Santa Claus ornaments—two for each daughter as they're bound to ruin some of them …

Looking for something?

I recently moved my main website domain nicolejinjones.com over to my new portfolio and art blog, so any of you who have tried to access my site were probably redirected there, where you hopefully found a link back to here. However you made it back here, I'm glad you found it! To access this craft blog, use nikijin.blogspot.com for now. This is the default Blogger address and should work whether or not I decide to change the address in the future. Also, you can find updated Pinterest pins to popular posts on this board. (Believe me, no one hates it more than me when Pinterest pins lead you nowhere!)



Happy Crafting!
