Get ready to transform some craft sticks into adorable gingerbread stick ornaments! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Jumbo craft sticks
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Wood glue
  • Brown, white, black, and red paint pencils
  • A string to hang the ornament
  • An Exacto knife
  1. Carefully cut a jumbo craft stick and two Popsicle sticks in half with the Exacto knife.
  2. Give the sticks a yummy, stained look by painting them with a watered-down wash of brown paint. Allow them to dry completely.
  3. Use the wood glue to attach the Popsicle sticks onto the jumbo craft stick to create arms and legs.
  4. Use a white paint pencil to add some frosting-like details to your gingerbread stick.
  5. Bring your gingerbread stick to life with two black-painted dots for eyes and a cute, curly mouth.
  6. Add a little cherry flower with a red paint pencil, and dot the center with black for an extra touch of festivity.
  7. Attach a string to the back of the gingerbread stick ornament so it can be hung on the tree.
  8. Your gingerbread stick ornaments are now ready to add some holiday cheer to your decorations!
