|CREATE|lolly stick christmas tree decorations


Each year, I plan to make a gift from T for our immediate family, we also make one for ourselves, eventually I'm hoping to have a small tree full so I can bring that out when he's off in the big wide world (sob!) and completely embarrassed by them!

Last year we made these cute little lolly stick Christmas trees.


I actually coloured in our lolly sticks but you could either by ready coloured or have your child colour them if they would keep interested enough to do them (T wouldn't - he still wouldn't!)

I didn't buy any items specifically for this project, I just raided my own craft cupboard and pulled out things I thought we could use, some stickers, some gems, glitter glue, ribbon and some tiny tags which I stamped with a Christmas image and added the year and 'Handmade by Thomas' on them.


I started by gluing the lolly sticks together to form a triangle, I used a hot glue gun for this but any strong glue will suffice.

Then I handed over to T to decorate the trees using the goodies in front of him, he loved squeezing on the glitter glue and sticking on the stickers.

Once T had finished, I applied some 'Merry Christmas' ribbon and the gift tag.

Do you make Christmas decorations with your small ones?  I'd love to see what you've been up to, share the link in the comments :)
