Stephen Small and I made these popsicle stick tree ornaments the other day. We loved it. I did all the glue gunning and he placed the buttons.
My goal was to make a craft out of supplies we already had --- no purchasing.
The inspiration came from here.
We painted the sticks with green finger paint then I cut them down and made the trees. All the buttons are from years of collecting extra ones that come with clothes.
To secure the twine I glued it between two popsicle sticks.
I used a glue gun, but maybe Elmer's would work. Or super glue. I don't know for sure --- my glue knowledge is limited.
They are hanging happily on my kitchen window.
Crafts are good. Crafts are healthy. Crafts are good clean fun.
December is off to a good start.
