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.

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 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.

    Because I forget, how can I keep this info or can I
    print the instructions. I want to be able to do this
    at a festival next December and begin to purchase
    througout the year. Love all your ideas.

    Did you use a self adhesive strip of rhinestones on that one snowflake? Thought that’s what it looked like in the video. Just wanted to check. 

  3. Hot glue is good, but I have used Tacky Glue in the gold bottle too. They dry quickly and hold tight.
