Popsicle Stick Ornaments
I love snacking on BudgetSaver pops bc they are inexpensive and I can find them in almost any grocery store in my area. I have been saving the leftover popsicle sticks, hoping for a reason to use them eventually.
With the holiday season here, I realized I can use them to make ornaments! This is a wonderful repurposing DIY that prevents waste, and is fun for kids too.
These popsicle stick ornaments are chalkboard ornaments, so once they are painted, hand them out at holiday parties or family get-togethers for adults and children to draw on them with colorful chalkboard pens.
Erase the chalk, then save them for next year. One ornament is a gingerbread house, the other is a frame to write names or draw family members.

Tools for Popsicle Stick Ornaments
To begin your popsicle stick ornaments, create a square with popsicle sticks. Coat one side of another popsicle stick with Modge Podge or glue and lay across square. For a frame, lay across the edge of square.
Once dry, flip over. For a house, cut popsicle sticks, and glue onto square to create a roof. For the frame, lay four sticks around the sides to create a border. Allow to dry.
Coat front or ornaments in colorful or black chalkboard paint. Allow to dry and paint a second layer, or follow paint brand instructions.
Use a glue gun to stick ribbons to the back of the ornaments. Draw on ornaments with chalkboard paint pens. Erase and redraw as you please. Hang on a tree, doorknob, door, or wall.
Customize your chalkboard popsicle stick ornaments however you like. Have an ornament party to create and decorate them.
Wipe them clean and save them for next year!
