The countdown to Christmas is on! If you’re looking for some easy Christmas crafts to do with the kids, look no further than these cute lolly stick reindeer:
If you prefer step by step instructions, then read on!
First of all, you will need:
- 3 lolly sticks
- brown paint (I used a quick drying paint stick)
- pipe cleaner, in gold or another colour of your choice
- 2 googly eyes
- small red pompom
You will also need scissors, to cut the pipe cleaner, and glue to assemble the reindeer. I recommend using a hot glue gun if you have access to one.
Step 1: Paint one side of each lolly stick brown.
Step 2: Glue two lolly sticks together, at one end, in to a V shape.
Step 3: Glue the third lolly stick across the other two, as shown in the picture below.
Step 4: Cut the pipe cleaner in half, and twist each half around the top lolly stick to make antlers.
Step 5: Glue on the google eyes.
Step 6: Glue on the pompom for the nose.
You can also add a little loop of string to the top of each reindeer, to hang them up as ornaments:
