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.


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


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!
