Popsicle Stick Rudolf Ornament {tutorial}

Hello! Only one more week of school for us! Yay! I am so excited to have my kiddos home for the holidays. :) While my kids are home from school I’m sure we will break out the craft supplies & make some fun stuff! That’s just how we roll. ;) We have been making these Popsicle Stick Rudolf Ornament for years. They are the perfect craft to do over Christmas break. They are so easy to make & soooooo cute! So keep reading to see how to make them. :)

You’ll need a few supplies:
brown craft paint (I used Multi-Surface Paint in cocoa bean from DecoArt.)
foam brush
popsicle sticks
red pom pom
googly eyes
ornament hook
school glue
hot glue (adult needed for this part!)

craft supplies

First you’ll paint 3 popsicle sticks brown. Let dry.
Optional: After mine dried I distressed them a little bit.

Then you’ll glue two of the sticks together forming a V.

The last step is a parent’s job. ;) You’ll need to use hot glue to attach the hook to the back.

  1. I LOVED THESE! I'm making both the Rudolph and the Christmas tree with my four year old daughter's preschool class tomorrow, and I did most of it ahead of time--they'll just be decorating the things, but I know they will love them both. Thank you so much for the ideas; I am so happy to have stumbled across your blog and am grateful for your positive, caring, fun energy. Thank you!

  2. Great DIY Christmas ideas! Rudolf is soo sweet! Merry Christmas!
