This ornament is both inexpensive and attractive, but best of all these candy cane reindeer are simple for kids to make and great as decorations for gifts.
What you will need:
•Candy cane (6 inch, individually wrapped)
•Ribbon – 8″ piece
•2 wiggle eyes (5 mm size)
•Red or brown pom-poms (very small)
•2 (18″) pipe cleaners (craft kind you can use any color but gold/metallic looks great)
Instructions for the project:
Leave the wrapping on the candy cane (so the kids can eat it later). Glue the eyes on the rounded face of the candy cane. Glue the red pom-pom on the face for a nose. Tie the ribbon into a bow on the straight part of the candy cane. Carefully cut one of the pipe cleaners in half. Then using the full pipe cleaner wrap it around the crook of the candy cane (both sides equal) to make the beginning part of the antlers. Then take one of the cut pipe cleaner pieces to wrap around the left antler and repeat on the right side. Arrange the pipe cleaners to look like antlers.
