A favorite Christmas ornament motif is Santa's reindeer. This is a guide about homemade reindeer Christmas ornaments.
Here's a wonderfully easy craft idea for kids and adults alike! You can use it for your tree, a gift to give, or anything you want! All you need are some candy canes, googly eyes, small pom poms, and brown pipe cleaner. One candy cane makes one reindeer.
They're delightful little reindeer to decorate your tree or house with, or to give away.

I'm sorry - I should've added that hot glue works best for everything!
What a cute ornament...and so easy for my six yr. old to help with too! Thanks for sharing
this is soooooooooo cute! and my daugther can help make them..thanks for the tip.
This is a guide about making a wine cork reindeer. A recycled wine bottle cork is perfect for making this diminutive reindeer.
I saw one similar somewhere and took it a few steps further. The kids will really have fun making this quick ornament, a great teachers' gift or how about that neighbor you want to give a little something to.
This is a good craft for the kiddies. They will need a little help with the hot glue gun, or you could substitute thick Tacky Glue. They can make it to hang on the tree or as a lapel pin.

Reindeer Light Ornament
1 outdoor Christmas lightbulb, 2 wiggly eyes, 1 red pom pom nose, 1 brown pipe cleaner
gold twine, hot glue
Turn the lightbulb so that the glass bulb is pointing down.
Hot glue the red pom-pom nose on the tip of the bulb.
Glue the wiggly eyes above the nose on the widest part of the bulb.
Cut the pipe cleaner in half. Twist the pipe cleaners around the metal
part of the bulb. Make them look like antlers. Tie a bow out of the twine and
glue it between the antlers. Finally, make a loop from the twine, to hang the ornament from,
and glue it to the back.
