First you’ll paint your popsicle sticks with the turf green Americana Mult- Surface Satin paint. I love this paint because it can be used on so many surfaces. It’s definitely my go to paint! ;) After I painted the sticks I used hot glue to turn them into a triangle.

Then I used a punch to make yellow stars out of textured scrapbook paper. I also punched out stars in chipboard. I glued them together with a glue stick to make them super sturdy. Then I glued the star on top of the tree.

I did the same thing for the trunk ~ a piece of brown striped scrapbook paper & some chipboard glued together. Then I hot glued the trunk to the back of the tree.

Then I flipped my tree over, and it looked like this.

Next I glued some cute buttons all over my tree for the “ornaments”.

Then the last thing to do is to hot glue a hook on the back of the ornament.
