Popsicle Ornaments we made
We decided we could make more ornaments for school, and decided to make Popsicle ornaments inspired from the 2 of my pins on Pinterest – this one from Kindergarten Rocks! and this one from Dilly Dally Art!All you need –
- 4 Popsicle sticks (or ice cream sticks)- I go a set for 5 Rs
- silver tempera paint (mine came from the Rangeela assortment pack – 20 Rs)
- Paper glitter assortment (our set was 25 Rs and had 5 colors, we used just blue)
- 1 gem – (you can buy an assortment of this from your local store; got this for 24rs)
I let Aarya paint the Popsicle sticks the sliver paint first and let it dry. Then I showed hime “my idea” of use the glitter glue (you can see that one stick in the middle which has equally spaced tiny drops – that’s mine); of course Aarya has his own plans 🙂 After doing this I found that the paper glitter do not dry off easily on these sticks, so I took a paint brush and spread them out a little (because Aarya had put huge chunks of it) – that accelerated the drying process. Using fevicol, we glued it in the pattern of a snowflake – Aarya though was unimpressed and said it look more like a star (well, star it is, then!). Added the ribbon in the end for the hanging, this was super simple and looks cute too!
Next one needed –
6 Popscile sticks (from the above assortment)
Pom-Poms (I bought mine from Itsy Bitsy Online Store a while back, you could use other embellishments as well)
Some gems (from the above assortment)
Green tempera color (from the above assortment)
I let Aarya paint the Popscile sticks green, he was so so happy to do this. We let them dry. Then I cut 4 of them from tallest to shortest and we discussed how to glue them, which he did on the 5th stick. That’s where he lost interest. Later I asked him, if he would like to decorate his tree, and he said OK. I added glue and gave him the pom-poms to add and then the gems. Later on, I added more glue to the pom-poms so that they would stay in place. Added the ribbon and they were ready for school!
