Chopstick Icicle Ornament

Hi there, Camilla here from Family Chic! Thanks to Stephanie Lynn for inviting me to share this fun and easy ornament craft with you today!

I love working with unexpected supplies – turning everyday items into something special. For Stephanie Lynn’s 4th Annual Handmade Ornament Series, I thought I would make some glittering icicles out of chopsticks. This one is quick and easy – great for kids and adults.

I hope you like it! XO, Camilla

Homemade Icicle Ornaments

The tapered shape of a chopstick lends itself quite well to this project – it makes a great icicle!

Handmade Icicle Ornaments

A quick dusting of gold glitter and plain chopsticks are transformed into sparkling icicles!

How to Make Icicle Ornaments

For this project you will need: chopsticks (sold by the bag at grocery stores), glue, glitter, a craft brush, floral wire and wire clippers.

Chopstick Icicles

Separate chopsticks. Cut a 5-inch piece of wire and wrap it around the thick end of the chopstick. Make a hook with the end of the wire.

Wooden Chopstick Ornaments

Coat entire chopstick with glue and dust with glitter — I used gold because it’s my favorite, but any color would work.

Gold Icicle Ornaments

The glitter covers the wrapped wire.

Homemade Icicle Ornaments

Let dry for a bit and then hang your new icicles on your tree.

Camilla Fabbri Family ChicCamilla Fabbri, Creator of Family Chic – Evanston, IL
My ideas for decorating the home and garden are all about family, nature and individuality. I am a stay-at-home mother of two with a strong creative streak. With encouragement from my husband, I started Family Chic in 2009 as a place to catch all of my ideas and begin the process of writing a DIY home crafting book. I love to create something from nothing. I’ve always found it far more interesting to see what a person can create with very little money rather than unlimited funds. Family Chic is a blog about creative family living; rethinking everyday items and making the most out what you have (or what you can get cheaply) to make a fun and creative family home. Many of my ideas are quick, easy, inexpensive and green. I hope you feel inspired to try some of the projects you see here. Maybe your family will get a small thrill out of the Family Chic ideas you bring into your own home.
