We made craft stick Christmas trees. We used buttons, Tri beads and tiny pom poms to decorate and added magnetic strip to hang them on the fridge
Thanks to Craftsprojectideas.com for the holiday craft supplies package. We used the green color craft sticks for the trees and the tri beads, pom poms for the decorations.
Christmas tree version 1:
4 green craft sticks(Colored Craft sticks)
Elmer no run glue
Cut a green craft stick in half using scissors
Place one craft stick in the vertical direction as shown and the other craft sticks in the horizontal direction the bigger ones in the bottom and smaller ones(half sticks) on the top. Adhere the pieces with the glue. When I gave CJ the sticks, she glued the sticks to the paper. She thought we were creating a card:-) so you can make a card too!
Decorate with buttons, Tri beads and pom poms. Let them dry.
Cut a magnetic tape into half and glue the strip to the wrong side of the tree.
Hang it on the fridge.
Christmas tree version 2: CJ came up with the idea of creating triangle shapes tree and she made the below tree.
6 green craft sticks(Colored Craft sticks)
Elmer no run glue
Green construction paper
Glue the craft sticks on the green construction paper in triangle shapes as shown below. Decorate with buttons, tri beads and pom pom. Let them dry. To give a neat look you can first draw a triangle shape on the paper,cut it and then glue the craft sticks.
Cut along the craft stick tree outline to get a tree shape.
Cut a magnetic tape and glue the strips to the wrong side of the tree. Add a masking tape on top of the magnet as shown below. It helps to avoid scratches on the fridge.
Hang it on the fridge
