Teacher Tip: If you don’t have red and green popsicle sticks then simply paint standard colored popsicle sticks and let them dry completely before assembling.
How to Assemble the Ornament
Begin by gluing 3 red popsicle sticks in a triangle using wood glue or craft glue. Then repeat with green popsicle sticks.
Next, grab the silver pipe cleaner and bend it back and forth, zig-zagging across the popsicle triangles.
Glue the pipe cleaner down with craft glue or wood glue.
