DIY Miniature Christmas Trees
These colored popsicle stick Christmas tree ornaments are fun and easy to make. If kids are making these, be sure to ask an adult to help with the hot glue. First, cut the ends off a variety of craft sticks to create several small tree shapes. You can make both tiered Christmas tree designs and miniature triangle Christmas trees.
To make the tiered mini trees, cut up colored craft sticks / popsicle sticks into a variety of sizes. Arrange the craft sticks horizontally so they increase in size from the top to the bottom. Glue the horizontal craft sticks onto a single colored craft stick to make each miniature Christmas tree.
Make miniature triangle trees by gluing three popsicle sticks together. Attach two long popsicle sticks to a shorter bottom piece to create triangle trees.
Decorate with Pom Poms, Jewels and Beads
Once you’ve created your miniature popsicle stick Christmas tree ornaments, it’s time to decorate! Embellish the mini trees with tiny pom poms, rhinestones, adhesive foam stars, beads, buttons and thin ribbon or trim. Attach the embellishments with hot glue. Finally, glue a loop of ribbon onto the back of each popsicle stick Christmas tree to hang it up.
Tip: If you use natural colored popsicle sticks to make these trees, you can paint them with craft paint before decorating. Full strength paint will create brightly-colored trees. Watered-down paint will create lightly colored trees in muted color tones.
We love how these miniature popsicle stick Christmas trees turned out. They add a pop of color alongside the other ornaments and multi-colored lights on our Christmas tree. You can use any combination of tiny decorations to make these popsicle stick ornaments sparkle!

This is also a great Christmas craft project for kids. Kids will love designing their own trees using their favorite colors and crafty embellishments.
