Craft: Four Homemade Christmas Ornaments

Here are Christmas ornaments that I made at different items.


Approximate Time 30 minutes each


  • ice cream sticks
  • pipe cleaners
  • beads
  • acrylic paint
  • hot glue and gun
  • ribbon



For the icicle, take a white or silver pipe cleaner as long as you want. Take the crystal beads and start with the smaller ones on the bottom. After you have twisted the pipe cleaner on the end to keep the beads from falling off, then use the bigger beads as you get to the top as in picture. Twist down at top and attach hanger.

Bead Candy Cane

For the bead candy cane, take a red pipe cleaner and twist in the shape of the cane then twist up one end. Put your beads on, you can make it as big as you want or use any colors you want. Keep putting the beads on until you get to the end. Twist that end of the pipe cleaner around the last bead and attach an ornament hanger.



For the sled, take 4 medium size ice cream sticks and glue together side by side then take 2 small ones or cut one of the medium ones in two and glue on bottom as in picture. Attach string to hang on tree. You can personalize it if you like. I hope you and your kids will make these and hang on your tree and enjoy.

Candy Cane

For the pipe cleaner candy cane, take 2 different colored pipe cleaners and twist them around each other then shape like a cane. Then take a green one and shape like leaves as in picture and twist around the cane. Attach an ornament hanger.

Thanks for sharing these cute ornaments. I especially like the sled and altho it's too late for my daughter to make for her classmates now, I will save the directions for her to make personalized oraments for ea classmate next year. She's in a small enough class that we could do it!
