Ingredients
  • Standard craft sticks
  • Miniature craft sticks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • White faux fur
  • Low-temperature hot glue gun
  • Red feathers
  • Gold sequins
  • Ornament string
Instructions
  1. After gathering supplies, arrange 5 standard-sized craft sticks side by side. Hot glue a miniature craft stick on top of them to create the nutcracker’s hat and face.

  2. Paint the nutcracker’s hat black and gold. Leave the bottom portion of the ornament natural wood.

  3. Next, sketch the nutcracker’s face with a pencil. Use a fine-tip paintbrush to fill in the sketch with acrylic paint.

  4. When the paint is dry, cut a small portion of a craft stick to make a nose for the nutcracker. Secure it to the ornament with a squeeze of hot glue.

  5. Use the low-temperature hot glue gun to secure white faux fur to the sides and bottom of the ornament. Trim the fur until you are satisfied with the length.

  6. Glue a red feather and gold sequin to the nutcracker’s hat.

  7. Last, glue a loop of ornament string to the back of the ornament. 

  8. Your craft stick nutcracker ornament is complete!
