This Christmas hat home ornament made from craft sticks is perfect for toddlers and preschool children to do. You’ll just need some craft supplies to begin!

My favorite ornaments to put on a Christmas tree are certainly those made by children. That Santa ornament finally turned out to be perfect for him. It involves some painting and gluing- two things Theo likes to do!

What you need

  • Popsicle sticks
  • Hot glue gun (optional)
  • Red tempera paint and brush
  • Cotton balls
  • White pom poms (optional)
  • Liquid glue
  • String for hanging

Instructions (step by step)

Start by gluing the three popsicles together to form a triangle.

Color the triangle red and let it dry.

Stick cotton balls along the bottom of the hat, and stick one onto the top.

glue on a piece of string to hang your ornament.

Yay! You have made it.

Popsicle Stick Reindeer Ornament

One of my favorite ornaments I made last year was the reindeer ice stick. They’re so pretty and really easy to do. Even my two-year-old managed to make a Christmas tree!

I took some googly eyes, small red pom-pom balls, and a pack of popsicle sticks from my local crafts store. I picked up a few pieces of ribbon in my stash and some brown paint. We were ready for arts and crafts!

What you need

  • Popsicle sticks
  • Googly eyes
  • Red Pom Pom

Instructions (step by step)

I did a V shape first and then hot glued another popsicle stick to the top to finish the head. To create the antlers I broke a popsicle stick in half.

Then we hot glued the end (you can use Elmer’s Glue too) between the two popsicle sticks on top to create my three antlers.

I used dark craft paint and asked my four- and two-year-old children to paint their reindeer.

My youngest is just starting to get into the crafts. I think it’s because he sees it’s his older brother who does it all the time!

I used a small red pom-pom ball for the nose and added some googly eyes.

I put my festive red polka dot ribbon in the back so I could hang my ornaments.

I believe these ornaments are so easy that even a two-year-old can do them. I just dabbled the glue on the places I wanted the eyes and nose to go. He’s in the right place.

Hurrah! You have made it. I hope you just love this Popsicle Stick Santa Hat project. If you like that, share it with your friends and family. Let’s encourage others to do crafting. Also, we love to hear our reader’s feedback don’t forget to comment below.
