Use craft sticks to make a cute Santa craft sticks frame ornament. A great keepsake ornament which will make a good gift too!
One craft material we use A LOT, is craft sticks! It is cheap and one can do so much with it! Like this pretty Santa photo frame my daughter made this year as a keepsake ornament!
We make a photo keepsake each year for our tree. Last year both kids made Salt Dough Handprint & Photo keepsakes. This year, my son made a Gingerbread House Photo Frame also from craft sticks and my daughter this Santa frame. Too cute, right?
- Thick craft sticks
- Red and black marker(you can use paint too)
- Shiny bit of craft foam or cardboard
- Sturdy cardboard for the back
What to do:
Cut the cardboard according to the size of sticks you’ve packed to form the frame. Mark where to cut so there is space for a photo. Cut on the lines and glue the sticks onto the cardboard.
Then, only colour or paint one stick black for Santa’s belt.
Next, add the foam belt piece.
Lastly, colour or paint the rest of the sticks red to resemble Santa’s clothes.
I made a slit at the back for the photo and cut the pieces of cardboard so it won’t show at the front. I also added a piece of ribbon to the back to be hung on the tree.
The date and my daughter’s name were added last.
And voila, a pretty Santa craft sticks photo frame ornament for our Christmas tree, one I will cherish forever!
