I am Meegan from What Meegan Makes. I am happily guest posting for Ashley today.
I love vintage items, crafts, blue, shells, the ocean and my family. I am happy to meet you and hope to see you at my blog in the near future.
I don’t know about you, but I am in the midst of making Christmas ornaments and presents.
I have fun giving our family Christmas decorations as a gift. Then their homes are full of Christmas .
This Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree is easy peasy!
I had so much fun working on this. It was REALLY easy and looks amazing with other Christmas decor.
Make your own popsicle Christmas Tree under $2…
I started out by breaking my Dollar Tree popsicle sticks in half. I liked the jagged edges as the layers for the tree.
Using an 8 inch Styrofoam cone, I hot glued my layers. Beginning at the bottom, leaving an overhang of about half an inch at the bottom. (Look closely at the bottom in this picture and you will see the overhang) You could make your layers closer together, if you like. Whatever is your preference, works. Just have fun. Perfection is not necessary.
Once, I got to the top I had to be a little more creative and strategically place the popcicle sticks. Then, the tree wouldn’t look lopsided.
Once I was done, I used silver spray paint to add some shine for my popsicle Christmas tree.
It also looks great paired with my cotton ball Christmas Trees.
Using a crystal ornament for the tree topper, I was finished.
This is a great idea to use as a gift and/or your own decor. Can you imagine a whole shelf or mantel full of them??? I know, me too!!
I am excited to hear if you make your own Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree! Leave a comment and let me know if and when you do.
Thanks again Ashley! I appreciate being a part of your blog today.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
