Craft-Stick Snow Clan Holiday Ornaments

Craft-Stick Snow Clan Holiday Ornaments

These fun, flaky folk have a lot of kid appeal, and with an ample selection of craft supplies, the variations are endless.

Materials

  • Wide craft sticks or tongue depressors
  • Wooden craft spoons
  • White craft paint
  • Colored felt, beads, pipe cleaners, mini pom-poms, twigs, markers
  • Craft glue
  • Ribbon

Instructions

  1. Paint the craft sticks, or tongue depressors, and wooden craft spoons with white paint and let dry. (If you're preparing for a party, paint them the night before to cut out the drying time.)
  2. Once you've got that white snowy base, let the kids plunge into the felt, beads, pipe cleaners, mini pom-poms, twigs, and markers to create a snow person self-portrait, or a whole snow clan complete with family pet. After the glue has dried, add the artist's name and the date to the back of the ornament and glue on a loop of ribbon to hang it on the tree.
