These ornaments are a kid-friendly craft, as they only call for some popsicle or crafts sticks, some embroidery thread and some white or blue paint. Then you just need to paint the sticks and let them dry. After that arrange them by matching sizes into an X shape. Then arrange two different size X’s diagonally on top of each other and glue them in the middle. Then just weave some thread around the craft sticks to make either an X or a grid pattern. Tie the thread at the back and then just trim off any excess thread. Glue a ribbon loop and hang it on your tree.
