Christmas Bear Craft Stick Ornament

I love spending Christmas with my daughter and the grandchildren. Every year before my trip I would spend endless hours searching websites and blogs for fun Christmas crafts to share with the kids.  After doing crafts with the kids and they are in bed, My Daughter and I get busy with some craft of our own.
Time for Cocktails and Crafts!  Our favorite late evening crafting is making these craft stick ornaments.

The Snowman and the North Pole sign from Squidoo
The Penguin from Better Homes and Gardens, The Reindeer from Craft Ideas.
The Christmas Bear is Mine.
To add to the collection, I been working on the 
Christmas Bear Craft Stick Ornament 
He's so easy to make:
Here's what you need:
Craft Stick
Brown paint
Brown foam, red foam, white foam
Black paint or marker
Pom Pom
Red ribbon
Scissors, glue, toothpick, paint brush.


1  Paint stick brown
2  Cut diamond shape for face, glue on stick about an inch down.
3  With black paint, dot eyes and draw nose
4  Cut shapes for hat, ears, and arms
5  Glue ears, wait for it to dry.
6  Glue hat band, fold hat down and glue, then glue to top of stick. Glue Pom Pom to tip of hat.
Tie red ribbon around neck.
7  Glue arms, wait to dry,glue garland on stick, fold arms to center and glue.  Glue ribbon to back of stick to hang.


He really is so darn cute.  People here in Cabo think I'm nuts running around looking for trees to hang him from for a photo. 

FYI:  I went to trouble to make a pdf file, if anyone would like one for the craft collection, please email me at and I will be happy to email.
