Begin by laying 5 craft sticks together horizontally. Draw the outline of a tree on them. A large triangle is all you need.

Cut the sticks on the lines to form the shape of the tree. Craft sticks are pretty easy to cut, but it may not be possible with kids’ scissors, so bear that in mind if you’re doing this with your children.

If you want, you can cut the top triangle from scraps of another stick to avoid wastage. But if you’re making multiple ornaments, it’s easy enough to cut several small tips from one stick.

Cut your ribbon into pieces that cover each of your craft stick tree parts. Lay them on top to ensure they look good. You can use all the same ribbon or you can choose to switch it up.

Glue the ribbon on to the sticks and then trim the ends to the shape of the sticks.

Take one last craft stick to act as your tree base. Glue each of your ribboned sticks onto it. You can glue them close together or leave a small gap between them. Either way looks great.

After you’ve glued all the pieces onto the stick base, flip it over and add a small loop of ribbon on the back so you can hang it.

That’s it!
