Popsicle Stick Tree Ornament

We all have them, jars and stashes of extra buttons we could use if we could just find them.

Ok, maybe it's just me but what a wonderful use of those unused extra buttons. This charming popsicle stick tree Christmas tree ornament was hanging in the center of a tree at our local city hall. My friend Millie guessed some staff youngster must have added it to the tree since it's not only the only one but is hanging about midway up the tree.

The popsicle tree ornament looks simple enough to make. After gluing three popsicle sticks into a triangle, paint green and allow to dry. Add buttons, a top star, a trunk at the bottom and paint. Add something to tie it to the Christmas tree.

I would encourage signing the back with a date to ensure this is an heirloom ornament.

Charming project for little hands to make over the holidays!
