Don’t you just love our new popsicle stick kids Christmas craft idea? Craft sticks are pretty much one of the most versatile crafting supplies. You can make coasters, build a basket, create a house, make magnets and so much more! We love them here at Ella and Annie; these cuties we created are just another reason why…
Popsicle Stick Kids Christmas Craft Idea
What you need:
- Popsicle Sticks
- Hot Glue
- White, Green, Red, Black, Pink, Brown Acrylic Paint
- Colored Card Stock Paper
- Pom Poms
- Christmas Pipe Cleaners
- Black Sharpie
For each popsicle stick character line 11 popsicle sticks up side-by side; the exact length of one stick. Glue two popsicle sticks across the back to hold the aligned sticks together.
Popsicle Stick Santa
We combined orange and white acrylic paint to make a peachy skin tone color for Santa’s face. Crayola also sells these multicultural markers that would work well. Paint the popsicle sticks and let dry. Cut a medium white pom pom in half and start to break apart to get pieces for the beard.
Place glue on the outer edges of the craft sticks and press the white pom pom pieces into the glue to form the beard. Add a pink pom pom for Santa’s jolly little nose. Use black sharpie to draw on the eyes. Cut a small red triangle from red card stock for the hat and glue a small white pom pom on the tip. We added a glittery pipe cleaner for the trim of the hat.
Popsicle Stick Polar Bear
Paint the sticks with white acrylic paint. Using a large dip and dotter, and press on the black polar bear nose. Repeat with pink acrylic paint and a smaller dip and dotter for the rosy cheeks. Use a black sharpie to draw on the eyes and mouth of the polar bear.
Using a circle punch, cut two circles from white card stock paper. Glue the circles to the back of the popsicle sticks. Draw on the black inner half circles to complete the ears.
Popsicle Stick Reindeer
For the reindeer, paint the sticks with brown acrylic paint. Use a large dip and dotter to paint on the red Rudolf nose. With a small dip and dotter, press on the light pink cheeks. With a black sharpie draw on the reindeer eyes and mouth.
Cut two antlers from brown card stock and glue onto the back of the popsicles sticks for the reindeer’s antlers.
Popsicle Stick Snowman
For the snowman, paint the popsicle sticks with white acrylic paint. Cut a small triangle nose from self-adhesive orange craft foam and stick onto the snowman. Draw on the eyes and mouth with the black sharpie.
Press on one pink cheek with a small dip and dotter. With black card stock cut out one square for the hat and a long rectangle piece for the hat’s trim. Glue the hat onto the snowman.
