Homemade Elf Hat Ornaments

Kids love to make Christmas ornaments. There is something special about having your own homemade ornaments that you can hang on the tree.


Tips for Making Christmas Ornaments with Kids

First, have fun that is the most important part. I always try to add in some learning aspects, so I would point out that we are making a triangle out of popsicle sticks, and then the pom-poms are fluffy circles.

I highly recommend having some paper down where you will do the craft because there is a lot of gluing going down, and the clean-up will be super easy.

These Christmas ornaments will look so cute on hanging on your tree this year, so don’t forget to add the string at the end.
