Making Candy Cane Reindeer for the holidays.These are fun, quick and simple to make. They are great stocking stuffers.
I started with organic candy canes, made with no artificial colors or flavors. I bought them at www.NaturalCandyStore.
You need a glue gun, candy canes, mini red pom poms, little bobble eyes, thin red ribbon, 12 inch brown or gold pipe cleaners, a ruler and a pair of scissors.
Start by cutting the pipe cleaners. Cut the piece into 2-6inch pieces. Then cut only one of the 6 inch pieces into half again, leaving the other one 6 inches long. Then cut a piece of ribbon about 8 inches long.
Next add a small dot of glue and glue on the pom pom for a nose and the bobble eyes.
Then take the 6 inch long pipe cleaner, and twist it in half around the bend in the candy cane.
Next take one of the 3 inch pieces of pipe cleaner, and twist it around on side of the pipe cleaner that’s attached to the candy cane. Do the same with the other 3 inch piece on the other side. the put a small dot of glue on the back side of the antlers to heold them in place.
Now tie on the ribbon, and glue it into place.
You’re done! They are so cute.
Kids love them!
