Simple Christmas Reindeer Craft
We are using pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and a single Popsicle stick to make beautiful Christmas crafts.
Step-1: Pick a big Popsicle stick and color it with your favourite color. We used colored Popsicle sticks to avoid extra time taking steps.
Though coloring Popsicle sticks take time, it is also a great time engaging activity for younger kids.
They even develop their painting skills. So, either way it is useful for kids to enjoy the craft activity.
Step-2: Attach two googly eyes to the stick half inch away from the end. Make sure you use small or tiny googly eyes as we need to fit two eyes on the width of Popsicle stick. And give a small triangle shape as a mouth part.
Step-3: Now use pipe cleaners to create horn shapes. We used light brown colored pipe cleaners to make horns to reindeer face.
All you need to do is, make two ‘Y’ shape using pipe cleaners and glue then to the head part of reindeer on either side in 45 degrees angle.
That’s it you are done with beautiful reindeer Christmas craft hanging within three steps.
Reindeer Popsicle Stick Christmas Craft Frame
Make a wonderful reindeer frame using simple supplies and in no time. You can use this craft thing as a special Christmas gift to your friends and relatives.
Step-1: Pickfourorange colored Popsicle sticks and make a rectangle with two legs. Just place two Popsicle sticks in vertical position and place the other two horizontally over them. Thus, making it a rectangle with two legs.
Step-2: Take a green colored drawing paper sheet and cut it in the rectangle shape. Make sure the size is matching to the rectangle you made with Popsicle sticks.
Next, write your Christmas message on the paper using glitter pens and stick it to the rectangle frame from the backside. Glitter pens make your message look clearly and brightly.
Step-3: Now, it is time to decorate your Christmas reindeer frame. We need to add reindeer face part to the frame.
For that, take a brown colored sand paper and cut it in the shape of reindeer face. Using pipe cleaners make two ‘Y’ shapes and attach to the face as horns.
Step-4: Attach the reindeer face to the rectangle frame at one top right end and on the left side corner, glue a tail part. Finally, give it a hanging part using satin ribbon. Now, make it stand and look at the fascinating reindeer Popsicle stick Frame Christmas Craft.

As a next step, take two Popsicle sticks and make them in to half. Such that we get four halves for two Popsicle sticks. Glue the two halves in the shape of ‘Y’ and repeat the same for the other two halves.
