DIY Kids Craft Stick Christmas Tree Ornament – TGIF

Merry Christmas, the holiday season is upon us! Making one or a few of these Craft Stick Christmas Tree Ornaments is a fun way to create a special memory with your grandchildren. One of my favorite Christmas memories is decorating our Christmas tree when Debbie, Sherri and I were young. We alternated between a fresh green tree and an all silver artificial tree decorated with red ornaments. When ever we had a fresh tree the finishing touch was always thin strands of silver tinsel. I loved hanging all of the beautiful ornaments on the tree. The silver tinsel not so much. I would start out by carefully placing one strand of tinsel on the tree. By the seventh or eighth strand I lost all patience and opted to decorate by throwing small handfuls of tinsel on the tree.
