The holiday season is almost here, and there’s nothing that excites us more than cute Christmas decorations! This beautiful reindeer craft, for example, would be on the top of our ‘Must-make’ Christmas decoration list. The animal has long been a prominent symbol of the holiday, proven by the amount of legends about Santa Claus’ reindeer. You might even remember a popular Christmas song, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” that some of us remember by heart!
Thus, this adorable craft definitely deserve a spot at your house this Christmas. Using wine corks, ribbons, and pom-poms, you can create your own reindeer decoration; without any hassle.
You’d need: 3 wine corks for reindeer’s body, 2 black (or other color) sewing pins for eyes (or small beads or gemstones), red ribbon, small red pom-pom or small red bead, dark-brown pipe cleaners, 1 tan/light brown pipe cleaner, glue (glue gun), knife.
Have you gotten all the materials needed? Great, let’s get started!
Directions: First, grab a cork and slice it into 4 equal pieces. Take another cork, cut it horizontally 1/3 : 2/3. The second cork should be cut into two pieces. Now, grab the first cork, and glue the 4 pieces to another cork (cork number 3, untouched). Make sure that when you glue it, the pieces resemble the reindeer’s legs. Then, glue on the neck and the head on one end of cork number 3.
Now it’s time to decorate the reindeer and bring it to life! For the eyes, stick two beads, and glue a red pom-pom below the eyes as the nose. The pipe cleaner is extremely versatile; you can twist it and make it an antler, the ears, and a tail for the reindeer. You can also turn the ribbon to a bow and glue it in front of the reindeer.
You can apply the idea into many different kinds of Christmas decorations, another example being the snowman ornament.
