Making ornaments at home is a great project for the kids at Christmas. It is easier than you think and will give you (and the kids) a sense of pride in making it yourself. They are absolutely great for ornament exchanges, and make wonderful gifts for Christmas (and they are under $2!). Which is why I chose to show you how to make a Popsicle stick sled ornament for my first Instructable.
You can modify my design (there are dozens of variations) and make it yours! The most important thing to remember is to be creative and have fun.
Step 1: What You Need
6 Popsicle sticks ($0 if you have some, but you can get a pack of 50 for under $1 at a craft store)
Scissors ($0, assuming you have these)
Glue (around $0.69)
Acrylic Paint (around $0.54)
Fine sandpaper or file (around $0.65)
Step 2: Shape the Popsicle sticks
Step 3: We're painting the popsicle sticks red!
When you are done they should look like the picture below.
