Charlie Brown Christmas Tree Ornament

This cute and easy DIY Charlie Brown Christmas tree ornament is a great holiday craft to do with kids!

When I was little one of my favorite parts about the holidays was watching all the Christmas specials….Remember specials? Did I just age myself. Bwah! Gen Z has no clue what I’m talking about. Seriously though, Charlie Brown was my very favorite special! I couldn’t wait for that special night each year when it would air.

Fast forward a few decades and my kiddos have followed right along in my Christmas “special” lovin’ footsteps. They live to get all cozied up in their holiday jammies and nosh on tasty holiday treats while they watch their favorite Christmas flicks. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I still love doing that just as much now as I did as a child!

And since watching A Charlie Brown Christmas is something we all enjoy doing together, I wanted to work on a special project with my kids this this holiday season to get them pumped about this year’s viewing.  Well, this cute and easy DIY Charlie Brown Christmas tree ornament is the perfect craft to tackle with kids! I love a project that doesn’t require a million and one supplies, don’t you?! Now, this isn’t a 3 supply DIY, but it certainly doesn’t ask you to buy out the whole craft store. Haha!

In fact, I urge you to head out this week and pick up the supplies you need for this holiday DIY, so you have something to keep the kiddos busy after Thanksgiving. We have some cold weather headed our way and that means more inside time than my little ones will probably want. Mama needs to be prepared with boredom busters! Just sayin’.

Directions:

1. Start by making the tree that will go inside of your ornament. Cut a 2 inch length of green pipe
cleaner for the trunk, and two smaller 1 inch pieces for the tree base.

2. Make an X with the base pieces by twisting them together.

3. Twist the longer 2 inch piece onto the base and bend it into an upside down J shape.

4. Add smaller pieces of green to the tree base. These will form scraggly little limbs. Twist them
onto the base until they are secure.

5. Glue a red pom pom to the tip of the branch to look like the red ornament that made the tree sag.
