Today was a wonderful mommy and me day and during nap time I made some of these cuties to put in my lovely hubby's Christmas box. I use to love getting and making these little candy cane reindeer when I was a kid and it is just as fun as an adult!
They are super duper easy to make. I used a glue gun but if you have kiddos that you are doing this with, I recommend using glue dots. You will need some pipe cleaners, googly eyes, red pom poms, and candy canes of course. I used the Starburst ones because my hubby isn't a peppermint fanatic like I am.
Glue on the nose and eyes.
Then put a little glue on the bottom of the curve and place the middle of the pipe cleaner on it. Put a little glue on the top and twist. Fold one long side in half and then the other. Then twist it in place.
Bend the antlers around and WALA you have a cute little reindeer!! Adorable right?! Now what can you do with it other than eat it [and they are yummy let me tell you]. You can place them in a vase and use it as decoration [my mother in law loved it!].
You can also add them to the Christmas tree.
And this year, other than sending some to my hubby, I will also be adding them as a little extra to the Christmas gifts.
So enjoy Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer while I go make a milk shake.
