Tree Branch Snowman Ornaments a Christmas Kids Craft

Sharing is caring!

Y’all know that crafting with the kiddos in my life is one of my most favorite things to do! every year my nieces and nephews get together to create a new ornament to gift to family, friends, teachers, coaches, and neighbors. I discovered bags and bags of these mini tree branch slices on clearance at my local craft store. So, I bought them all up and created Tree Branch Snowman Ornaments with the kids this holiday season.

Here’s How to Create Tree Branch Slice Ornaments with the Kids:

STEP ONE

Gather all supplies.  Paint the center of the Birch tree branch slices with Titanium White Americana acrylic paint.  Apply a second coat, if necessary, and then set aside to dry.  I love Americana Acrylics because they provide excellent one-coat coverage. You can get a bulk bag of 100 mini branch slices which will make approximately 33 ornaments.

STEP TWO

Match up the sets of three Birch tree branch slices with the smallest at the top and the largest at the bottom.  Paint a triangle in the center of the smallest branch slices with Jack-O-Lantern Orange Americana acrylic paint, which will be the snowman’s nose.  Dip the end of a paintbrush into Lamp Black Americana acrylic paint and dot on the snowman’s eyes, mouth, and buttons.

STEP THREE

Attach the sets of the Birch tree branch slices, stacked edge to edge, with a glue gun and glue sticks to create each snowman ornament.

STEP FOUR

Tie a piece of skinny patterned ribbon around the neck of each snowman, securing with a knot.  Glue ribbon ends down, so they lay flat. I like the gingham ribbons best.

STEP FIVE

Measure and cut an eight-inch length of white cord, tie ends in a knot to create a loop.  Flip the snowman over and attach the loop to the back of the ornament with a glue gun and glue sticks.
