Holiday Fun with Craft Sticks

I hope you are all finishing the last touches to your holiday preparations! I just finished putting together these craft stick projects that have been laying around our house almost done for too long. They were easy to do but just one of those things I never seemed to find the time to get done and hung up.
Craft sticks hot glued together by Mommy also were transformed into this abstract wreath shape after being painted green and getting a dusting of glitter. Red pom poms give it some extra color and represent holly berries.
We also made a manger out of the sticks and got as far as painting it brown. I didn't realize until afterward that I should've made the base much much wider. The next step would be to add a baby Jesus with a wood ball painted flesh color wrapped in a scrap of felt, on top of some of that gift basket filler. A pipe cleaner star should also be hanging over baby Jesus but alas we ran out of time. It was a good way to talk to ER about what exactly a manger is though.

I like all your craft stick crafts. The only problem I have with those crafts is that they need a hot glue which I don't have. It's on my own Christmas wish list. ER looks so interested putting together a manger.
