Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Materials:
- popsticle sticks
- glue stick
- marker (pink, brown)
- paper (yellow)
Begin the project by laying out all of your materials. You’ll want three popsicle sticks for each Christmas tree. Cut one of the sticks so that 1/3 is the trunk, and 2/3 is the bottom of the tree.
Color two full sticks with red marker, along with the 2/3 portion of the remaining (cut) stick. Then use a brown marker to color the stem for the tree.
Use your glue stick to assemble the tree, taking care to attach the stump to the bottom of the tree (glue on the back side). Free hand a star on your yellow paper.
Then cut the star and attach to the top of the tree.
Use the pipe cleaners and pom poms to decorate each tree so that each tree is unique. Affix a ribbon atop the tree that will allow the Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree to be hung on a Christmas tree as a decoration.
