Holiday Crafts for Kids--Reindeer Ornament



My Grandma taught me how to make reindeer ornaments back when I was 8 or 9 years-old and I still have fun making them to this day. I even have a few of the originals hanging on my Christmas tree this year! All it takes to make this reindeer ornament is a few supplies and you're in business.


Supplies

Popsicle sticks
Googly eyes
Tacky glue
Yarn or ribbon
Round bead or pom pom
Marker


Directions

1. Glue 3 popsicles sticks together in the shape of an upside down A.







2. Attach eyes with glue.






3.  Create a loop with yarn or ribbon and glue to the back. Attach nose with glue.






4. Attach accessories and add details (like eyelashes).






Once glue dries, it's ready to hang!
