Easy Christmas Tree Ornament

4 Materials

This Christmas tree ornament is one of those easy projects that you just need to made sometimes. Plus, use the link above to share a photo of your Christmas tree on my blog!
First I grabbed a pack of colored craft stick (popsicle sticks). You can paint your own if you want to, but they had a cheap-o pack of sticks at the store. I'm using the green for our tree, and plain for the main portion of the tree...

I also used some tinsel pipe cleaner, the same stuff I used to hang our craft stick sled ornament (check my Hometalk projects to see that one), ribbon, a yellow pom-pom for the tree topper, some glue - hot glue would probably work best and a pair of scissors or utility knife.
Line up the green sticks and mark off a triangle shape, cut the sticks - this will make the boughs of your tree.

PS: Don't forget to share a photo of your Christmas tree here.
Start gluing! Glue the tree boughs, beginning about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the top, space them evenly and leave enough plain craft stick at the bottom so it looks like there is a tree trunk.
Decorate! Use the tinsel pipe cleaner, or whatever items you want really. Make it your own. Don't forget to put the star on!
Finally attach ribbon to the back side to hang your Christmas tree ornament on your Christmas tree!
Hang it on your tree!
All there is left to do is kick back with a nice cup of hot cocoa and think about all the shopping, gift wrapping, baking, entertaining, travelling, family feuds and everything else the comes with the holiday season :)
