Popsicle sticks Xmas decorations are creative activity for kids. In fact, they don’t have to be just stars, there are other shapes as well, e.g. Christmas trees or snowflakes. You can use regular poster paints to color and everything that is shiny to decorate.
Making Christmas decorations together is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your family, to laugh and to get dirty. When you make decorations with kids, don’t worry about the result, it doesn’t have to be the most beautiful star in the world. It is more important that you do it together and then hang it on your Christmas tree. You can also give to grandma, she will definitely be happy.

Making of popsicle sticks Xmas decorations
Making popsicle sticks Xmas decorations consists of 4 stages:
- Gluing the base – to be made by an adult
- Painting – to be done by kids
- Decoration – to be made by kids
- Attaching the pendant – to be made by an adult
Prepare the popsicle sticks base. Below you can find the picture instructions for snowflake. At the very bottom you will find the picture of Christmas trees shape. Leave to dry for approx. 1 hour.
Now it’s time to let your kid have some fun and make a mess while painting and decorating. Regular poster paints have worked well, so you don’t have to use any professional paints. Remember to secure the area so that painting runs carefree for your the child and for you.
Leave to dry for a while.
Now it’s time to decorate. Here, you are only limited by imagination. We used self-adhesive crystals, glitter foam stars, sequin stars and snowflakes.
Finally, mount the string pendant.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
