Craft Stick Reindeer – Cheap Christmas Crafts for Kids

Please remember, I’m not crafty, I’m not a tutorial maker, and I have about as much passion for glitter and glue as every other guy out there. What I do enjoy though, is spending time with the tiny human and finding crafty things she enjoys doing to share with her. So that’s what this month is all about! Let Charlie have a little creative fun, get her excited for Christmas, and enjoy some quality time! Today we are making Craft Stick Reindeer!

Materials List

  • Craft Sticks
  • Hot Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Googly Eyes
  • Red Felt or Red Pom-Poms


Shape It!

First make a triangle by gluing three craft sticks in the shape of a triangle. If you’re anything like me you will get the little hot glue strings everywhere, so just wait for them to dry and wipe them off.


Googly Eyes!

For the eyes, get yourself a pack of googly eyes. They are about $1 at Wal-Mart. Glue 2 large/medium sized googly eyes on each side with the point of the triangle pointing towards you.


Nose So Bright!

For the nose, you have a few options. I had red felt available. You can also use Red Pom Poms’s for the nose.


Hang it!

Once your reindeer is assembled, you can glue a ribbon loop to the back. There you have it, a simple project you and your tiny human can complete together. You’ll be amazed at the memories you can make for $10 and a little bit of love.
