Popsicle Stick Ski Ornament

Popsicle Stick Ski Ornament

‘Tis the season to decorate the tree.  Even though I’ve been collecting ornaments most of my life and have more than can fit on one tree, I love to craft new ones.

We haven’t started decorating for Christmas, but when we do, an addition to this year’s tree will be a popsicle stick ski ornament inspired by Country Living Magazine.  When I saw this ornament in the December 2014 issue, I knew that I would have to make a version for my own tree.

This is an easy craft.  I started by painting two popsicle sticks red and two toothpicks white.   When the white paint was dry, I painted the end of each toothpick black.

After the paint was dry, the popsicle sticks were glued together to resemble crossed skis.

Glue a metal snap to the end of each toothpick.  Cut a small strip of felt and glue it into place to resemble ski pole handles.

Glue a toothpick ski pole to one popsicle stick and then cross the other toothpick over it.  Glue in place.

Glue a piece of bakery twin to the back to make a hanger.

  2. This is precious! At first glance I thought these were actually bigger reproductions (that’s how real they look to me!). What a fun ornament to have on the tree!

  3. I’m actually making these now… but let me ask you: what type of glue did you use for this craft? I can’t get the toothpicks to stay together. I’m now using hot glue, but that leaves a lot of glue on the ski that is visible. Thanks for the help!

    1. Hello, Whitney! I honestly can’t remember exactly what I used but if hot glue isn’t working, try E6000.
