Reindeer Ornaments

Here are some ideas that all have a reindeer theme for individuals of any age will like to do. Some may need adult help or supervision.

Reindeer Bell Ornament

Materials:  brown/tan bell, red pipe cleaner, googly eyes, small red pompom, glue, double sided tape and Glue googly eyes onto bell
Use double sided tape to attach small pompom. {We tried to glue it on and it just wouldn’t stay}
To make the antlers: string a piece of red pipe cleaner through the top loop of the bell. Twist to secure.  To make the antlers tines {the prong looking part} twist a small piece of red pipe cleaner around each side, near the top.

Rudolph and Co. Holiday Ornaments

Materials:  Craft glue. Craft sticks, several shades of brown felt, Scissors, Googly eyes, Red and brown pom-poms, Off-white felt, and Ribbon


Glue 3 craft sticks together in a triangle, allowing some overlap on two corners for antlers, as shown. Glue 2 more craft sticks to the triangle, one on each side between the overlapped sticks, and let dry.
Next, glue a triangular piece of brown felt to the craft stick triangle and trim so the edges of the felt match up with the sticks. Glue on googly eyes, a pom-pom nose, brown felt triangle ears, and a small off-white felt triangle blaze to the reindeer's forehead. Add a loop of colorful ribbon on the back to hang this festive fauna.
Christmas Tree Light Reindeer Ornament

Materials:  Christmas tree Light Bulb, Pom-pom, Wiggle Eyes, Chenille Stem, Gold Thread or Ribbon, Craft Glue, and Scissors
Use the photo here as a guide for where to glue on everything. Start out by adding the pom-pom nose and wiggle eyes.
Cut a piece of gold thread or a thin ribbon and tie it into a loop for hanging. Glue the loop to light bulb. Form antlers out of chenille stem and glue it to the light bulb.
Once all of the glue is dry, you can hang it up!
