Popsicle Stick Mini Wood Sign Ornaments

Put those wooden craft sticks to use – make these rustic DIY ornaments this holiday season.

Wood sign ornaments are the easiest way to give your farmhouse Christmas decor and upgrade!

Black and white paired with neutral colors seem to be the colors of the season, which provides great ideas for holiday decorations. For this particular project, I went with a black-and-white style, since it will go great with my farmhouse theme.

Winter can typically be a gloomy season, especially if you live in an area that gets tons of snow (hello, skiing and sledding). So if you’re looking for a winter boredom buster, this is a craft project that the kids can make. They can get really creative with their ornaments!

WHY I LOVE THIS PROJECT

I’m no stranger to a good Popsicle stick craft project. I’ve used wooden craft sticks in a variety of ways, including upscaling a cookie sheet into a serving tray.

I also like the versatility working with popsicle sticks offers. A simple, wooden statted surface gives you a really nice “canvas” for drawing, painting, and the like.

In my other ornament project, I used a similar method with the craft sticks and it still has its own unique look and finish.

  • Waverly stain paint (brown)
  • White craft paint
