Gear up for your holiday decorating with these handmade tree trinkets.


  • Craft stick
  • Emery board
  • Glue
  • Toothpick
  • Beads
  • Ribbon


To make a set of skis like these, first use hot glue to attach 2 emery boards an inch or so from the ends of 2 colored craft sticks (available at craft stores), then glue the sticks together as shown.

For each pole, glue a small button onto one end of a toothpick and a round bead to the other end for a handle.

Finally, glue the poles to the skis, tie a ribbon around the set, and tie on a string loop for hanging.
