"The Cutest Reindeer of All"
I love this ornament because it's cheap, we had almost everything on hand, and it's easy enough for my youngest kids to do but fun enough for the older kids to help. It was great that we could all pitch in to make these!
3 Popsicle sticks
Yarn, string or ribbon
Fake holly flowers w/berries or just fake leaves & pom poms
Googly eyes (that's a technical term!)
Hot glue & gun
Glue the sticks together in a triangle, but overlapping at the top. Glue the string to the back in a loop, clip leaves and berries off the fake holly branch. (You can also use any other leaves & pom poms.) Glue 2 leaves and a few berries on the top of the reindeer. Glue a pom pom on for the nose and googley eyes!
Easy, cheap & fun! Plus they look adorable! We make homemade ornaments every year for all of our family and the kid's teachers and these have been the biggest hit so far! (6 years running!)
