When I was a little girl my mom would pull out the craft supplies at Christmas. We didn’t craft very often, so it was always memorable when we did. One fond memory I have is making candy cane reindeer. The traditional – pipe cleaner antlers, googly eyed, red nosed reindeer candy cane craft that we all made back in the ’80s.
I gave one to all my classmates and they adorned the top of every gift we gave that year. Honestly, I still make those reindeer with my kids. Love them. However, this year I had a vision in my mind of how we could reinvent and upgrade the traditional candy cane Rudolph and his reindeer friends.
Enter these super cute printable reindeer faces and this sweet candy cane reindeer. Here’s how we made them.
Cutest Ever Candy Cand Reindeer Craft
brown pipe cleaners
little red pompoms (black ones too, if you like)
hot glue gun
white card stock
our candy cane reindeer faces printable
The first step is to prepare the candy canes. Lay two candy canes side by side and secure them together with a piece of clear cellophane tape. Eventually, the tape will be hidden by the reindeer’s face. Next, wrap the brown pipe cleaner around the two “antlers”. You could skip the brown pipe cleaner step, but I thought that it really completed the look of the reindeer antlers.
Once your candy canes are prepared, it’s time to print out and cut out your candy cane reindeer faces printable. I printed ours on card stock, but you could totally print them on regular printer paper. After printing them off, it’s time to cut out the little faces.
Okay, warm up the glue gun and adhere the noses to the faces. I chose to make our reindeer all Rudolph. A black nose would make your reindeer another member of Santa’s team.
When the noses are in place, use the glue gun to adhere the face to the candy canes. A little dab, right on top of the tape and your reindeer candy cane is complete.
Aren’t they adorable? We will be using them to adorn all of our gifts this year. My nieces and nephews are going to LOVE these little guys. Time to make Santa’s entire team of reindeer!
