When we made this sweet reindeer ornament everyone thought it was super cute, so I figured I would share it with all of you. Christmas time is a fun opportunity for little craft projects and handmade Christmas ornaments for kids. This reindeer ornament started in my recycling bin and came to life with a few little additions!

Since I never planned to write about this reindeer ornament craft, I do not have step-by-step photos. However, it is so easy; I bet you can get the gist of it from the picture and my step-by-step instructions.

I am not the most craftiest person, but I am pretty proud of my reindeer ornament. Although my son helped me with the design, I did use a hot glue gun.

  • Brown plastic jar lid. (As you can see, we ate some Skippy Peanut Butter that week!)
  • Small red plastic ball ornament {or red pom}
  • Google eyes

  • Glue gun


Step 1: Find a brown plastic lid and make sure it’s clean!

Step 2: Use a glue gun to glue in place eyes and ornament nose (or pompoms)

Step 3: Snip a brown pipe cleaner in half. Wind each half around a pencil to give it a curly-q shape.

Step 4: Gently slide off the pipe cleaner and glue both pieces to the top of the lid on the rim part. Bend and fix as desired.

Step 5: Glue a ribbon into place for hanging!
