String Wrapped Popsicle Stick Elf Ornament
These are so cute, and, you don’t need a Christmas tree to enjoy them! Hang them from the window, omit the string and set them on the mantle, or add a popsicle stick stake in the back and place it in an indoor potted plant. The choice is yours!
This adorable elf outfit is popsicle sticks wrapped in string and decorated like an elf suit. It’s so cute, and, even toddlers can make this one too! Pre-glue the craft sticks together, and let young children paint and wrap the sticks before creating the elf suit. You’ll be impressed at how cute and easy these are! While you’re at it, make this string wrapped Rudolph ornament too!
What you need to make the elf ornament:
Mini Popsicle Sticks
String or Yarn
Decorate String or Ribbon
How to make the elf ornament:
Begin by assembling the outfit base. Glue 4 craft sticks together, or glue two small craft sticks along the back of the 4 together to make it nice and sturdy for little hands.
Once dried, paint the craft sticks with green paint.
Wrap the painted craft sticks with green string or yarn. Children can select their elf outfit fabric from a variety of strings and ribbons to make this even more creative and independent.
Once wrapped, add foam embellishments for the belt and the collar of the elf suit.
Loop a ribbon or a string and attach to the back of the outfit with glue to hang on the tree as a DIY elf ornament.
That’s it! Enjoy making this fun ornament craft for kids. Proudly display these on your Christmas tree or place around the house as some homemade holiday decor.
