How to Make a Popsicle Stick and Pom Pom Christmas Tree
This is one of those really fun and simple crafts that looks SO awesome, even if your kid is all thumbs when it come to crafting. It’s great for all any age crafter, too!
Younger kids will want to use ordinary school glue to stick their pom poms to the tree’s popsicle framework. Older kids can speed things up with the use of hot glue.
This is NOT a good craft for glue sticks, you need something VERY sticky!

You’ll need at least two kinds of pom poms: larger green balls for the base of the tree, plus tiny colorful ones to make the ornaments.
You can add a touch of sparkle by mixing in Tinsel Pom Poms.
You can find pom poms in the kid’s craft area of your favorite hobby shop, or online at Amazon.
