How to Make Candy Cane Reindeer
If you have little ones, let me introduce you to the amazingly wonderful Candy Cane Reindeer. These nifty things are guaranteed to bring a smile to any little ones face.
They are wonderful little gems and have been used around my house for the following:
attach to packages as extra bling
goody bag items for classroom holiday parties
make and sell them in your holiday store at school
Here is what you’ll need:
brown pipe cleaners
googly wiggly eyes (I like the self sticky ones)
Use glue gun to apply glue to the pom-pom…
|Picture taken by my eleven year old! Awesome, hua?|
…place the red pom-pom on the candy cane to represent the reindeer’s nose. Then, add the wiggly eyes.
|Eleven year old photography strikes again. He rocks!|
Take your pipe cleaner and fold it in half to make a ‘v’ like this:
Twist the pipe cleaner multiple times to secure it to the candy cane. You can add a small dot of hot gun glue where the pipe cleaner and candy cane meet if you want.
Shape your pipe cleaners to look like antlers and you are good to go!
So simple and it makes a great family project! (Obviously parents would need to operate the hot glue gun.)
Super cute. And even better, it looks super easy. That's my kind of craft. I may have to try that!
