Candy Cane Reindeer
November 21st, 2011 by Craftylocks

 

This makes a neat decoration for the tree or a gift for children to give to friends and family, although if you want them to give it away you may have to make extra so they can keep one as well!!

You will need …

Brown card
Red paper
2 eyes
1 red glitter pom pom
Glue
Scissors
Craft knife
2 wrapped candycanes

On the brown card, cut out one reindeer head, two ears, and one strip.

With a pencil, mark where the cuts will be made and using a craft knife cut the slits in the head to fit the strip through and across the top for the candycanes to slide into.

Weave the strip through the head so that you have both tags sticking out of the front of the head.

Turn the head over and pull the tags out so the candy-canes can fit through.

Glue the ears to the tags at the front of the head. Push the candy-canes through the slits at the top of the head and through the tags at the back of the head.

Cut ear detail out of the red paper and stick to the ears. Glue on the eyes and nose and the reindeer is now looking way too cute to be eaten … or is it??

Haha – that is so funny – I am going to chuckle every time I look at a toilet roll now – which as you can see from all the crafts is quite a lot!! I am so glad you are enjoying the crafts – I do try and find ones that are fun and doable.

LOVE IT LOVE IT – so cute – so easy – so basic – I am hosting an Operation Christmas Child (filling the shoeboxes for overseas) and a Saint Nickolaus event and I seriously love this for both of the parties/events (and so does hubby) thank you again for your excellent ideas
