Directions

Place the yellow craft sticks on a paper plate and color thin wavy lines across each one. 

Using one color of embroidery floss, wrap the entire pack around three fingers. 

Slide your fingers out and tie the end in a double knot around the center. 

Cut the loop on each side to make the truffula tree tufts. 

Repeat for each color embroidery floss.

Use the glue gun or glue dots to secure the tree tuft to the top of the striped craft sticks.

Making This Craft In The Classroom

If you’re planning on making this craft in the classroom, we’d suggest it for ages 8 and up.

If you do want to make this craft with younger kids, you’ll need to have adult assistance. Coloring the popsicle sticks is easy enough for children of any ages, but making the truffula treetop is the trickier part.

You could always make these ahead of time and then just have the kids glue them on when they make the craft.

Alternatively, you could use large pre-made pom poms in place of tying them yourself.
