Twig tree Christmas Ornaments are so easy to make, even the youngest crafters will love them.
I love a Christmas tree ornament that looks like a miniature Christmas tree.
Similar to our Twig Star Ornaments from last year, we’re combining twigs and yarn, and using our wrapping and winding skills to make this adorable nature craft for Christmas.
You probably already know how much we love crafting with sticks and other natural materials around here! I love the simplicity of a nature craft. Using sticks and other found natural items in for your crafts and activities is a great way to stretch your crafting budget, and also a lovely way for your kids to explore the natural world around them.
A nature walk or a scavenger hunt where you hunt for your sticks and twigs is always a great way to kick off an activity like this one.
All you need is a glue gun, some twigs and a ball of yarn. Pretty simple, huh? I used Martha Stewart’s “Glitter Eyelash” yarn in a silvery blue, but don’t let yourself be limited by materials. You could use regular yarn in festive colours, rafia, strips of fabric scraps, ribbon, or even strips cut from colourful plastic bags. Get creative and use whatcha got!
Glue your twigs together to form a triangle and pop a little “stump” on the bottom. Once your glue has set, tie your yarn around the stump and start wrapping. Finish by tying off at the top of the tree. Attach a ribbon for hanging, and you’re done!

Well, there you go folks! Hope you liked this simple little start to the holiday season! Stay tuned! We’ll have lots more coming your way!
