DIY Star Wars Characters Popsicle Stick Ornaments

After I made the Christmas character popsicle ornaments, I started brainstorming ideas for other ornaments that would be fun.  Check these out! My husband definitely thinks they turned out cool, however, I think they would be difficult for our 3 year old to make (since the pieces of cut foam were small and hard to handle).  Here’s a list of the materials I used: colored foam, scissors, glue, tongue depressors, paint, and ribbon.  First I created a template to cut out the pieces from foam and then glued them together.  Darth’s face was a little difficult because I wanted to give it depth and was only using black foam.  It would have been great to find dark gray but I think the end result worked out well. You could even use these as puppets!

My three-yea-old is finally old enough to be interested in making Christmas ornaments.  We tried last year when he was 2 1/2 but it was difficult to keep him interested.  This year I was looking on Pinterest for ideas and came across A Day of Wonders’ popsicle stick snowmen.  I showed him the idea and he was really excited so we decided to expand the cast to the whole Christmas gang!

Here is what you need:

The ribbon we attached to hang them with isn’t pictured but you could also just attach an ornament hook.
You could also get creative and use other materials – anything you can glue onto a popsicle stick.
Also: we used tongue depressors which are a little wider and allowed more room for faces, but that title didn’t sound as appealing.
