Christmas Traditions

Christmas Traditions and making memories with my family are my favorite part about Christmas. Every year when Christmas comes around we have a few traditions we love.  One of our favorite traditions is making homemade gifts for our family members and friends.

We decide on a different craft every year.  This year we chose to make a popsicle Christmas tree ornament.  You can find other handmade Christmas ideas in my roundup, DIY  Last Minute Christmas Gifts On A Budget.

Your family and friends will love the thought and effort you put into making these fun popsicle stick ornaments for them.  Popsicle stick ornaments are something I remember making in grade school.  They are so easy and fun to make.  These homemade Christmas gifts are perfect for family, friends or teachers.
