Popsicle Stick Reindeer Ornament

Posted by Lori:

This cute little reindeer ornament is simple to make and will be perfect for our elementary school Christmas party this Friday.  You can't tell it but the popsicle sticks have been painted a light brown color (thanks to my husband for painting over 500 of them for me!!).  You can use them plain or painted dark brown, as well.
This craft is very inexpensive, so is perfect for large groups.  It has cost less than $20.00 for all of the supplies for 150 kits.  Not bad at all!

Popsicle Stick Reindeer Ornament

3 popsicle sticks (plain or painted)
1 small red pom pom ball
2 googly eyes
Glue (I used glue dots)
Holly decoration (if desired
1 brown pipe cleaner, cut in half
1 piece of ribbon

Glue two popsicle sticks to form a "V" shape.  Glue third popsicle stick to the top of the "V" shape, coming down 1/4 to 1/2 inch.  Glue red pom pom ball on bottom of "V".  Glue eyes on each side of the "V", about half-way down the stick.  Glue holly in the center of the top popsicle stick. Wrap each half of the pipe cleaner around top ends of "V" shape and curl to make antlers.  Finish by gluing a ribbon loop or hanger onto the ornament so that it can be easily hung.
Pin It Now!

Oh, I like the curly pipe cleaners for antlers! We made these a long time ago with tongue depressors, but just let the little stubs of sticks at the top be the antlers! Much cuter!
