The ideas and decorations for these cute Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments are endless! These snowflakes made with simple craft sticks are easy to decorate too that any age can help make them. Our 2 year old was so excited to have made his very own ornament and he even put it up on the tree by himself. I asked him which ornament was his favorite and of course he said his popsicle stick snowflake.
You can make so many fun popsicle stick christmas crafts this year but these popsicle stick ornaments are definitely our favorite! The best part is that kids can decorate them however they’d like. And each one will end up being unique just like a real snowflake!

How to Make a Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornament
Here are the supplies you’ll need to make your own Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments:
–Popsicle Sticks (we used colored ones but plain would work too, you would just need to paint them)
–Tinsel Pom Poms and/or craft foam balls
–Twine for hanging
3 Easy Steps to Make Your Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments
1. First you need to paint your Popsicle Sticks if you don’t already have colored sticks. We started with colored sticks which make it much easier to create! But painting can also be part of the fun too so you could easily get plain popsicle sticks and paint them whatever color you like!
2. Next you need to hot glue gun your popsicle sticks together. Forming the shape of the snowflake, put a small bit of hot glue in between each popsicle stick. Once done, add a bit of hot glue to the back and add your twine for hanging. Adults should do this part. You can get the snowflakes ready and then kids can do the decorating!
3. Now is the fun part! Time to decorate!
We did all different kinds of decorations. We used Glitter Stickers and Silver Glitter on one, Christmas Bells and glitter, Fabric Snowflakes and glitter, Tinsel Pom Poms and glitter and just pure glitter on the final one.
If you want to get the glitter on your snowflake ornament, just put a bit of the tacky glue and pour the glitter on top. Then shake off the excess glitter.
That’s it! Pretty easy and this craft will surely keep the kids occupied. And the best part is you’ll have an ornament to cherish for many years to come!
