It's February 25th - 10 months from today is Christmas!! It's never too early to start on 2008 Christmas ornaments! This was a very easy ornament and took just a few minutes to make. It is made from buttons, popsicle sticks and a little ribbon.
4 popsicle sticks
buttons (or gems)
Instructions: Take 2 popsicle sticks and form an x and glue where the two sticks connect. Take other 2 and form a + and glue where two sticks connect. Now take the x and the + and place on top of each other and glue where they connect. Take buttons or gems, poms poms whatever you like and glue to popsicle sticks. If you wanted to you can paint the popsicle sticks before you begin. Take ribbon and glue a hoop and viola!, you have a cute ornament for the tree.
I think this would have been cuter if all the buttons would have matched. However, in my quest to be frugal, I decided to make do with what I had. Stay tuned for more popsicle ornaments since I have a box of 1000 popsicle sticks that I found!
