Let’s Start the Reindeer Craft!
Paint the Antler Craft Sticks
Step 1: First paint two regular popsicle sticks and 4 mini popsicle sticks brown and set aside to dry.
Align and Secure the Sticks
Step 2: Next, line up the other 5 regular sized popsicle sticks in the pattern shown to create the reindeer’s head.
Step 3: To secure this head shape, hot glue two mini popsicle sticks across the back.You can use all-purpose glue however, a longer drying time will be needed.
Arrange and Secure the Antlers
Step 4: Now, flip the reindeer head over and glue the two brown regular sized popsicle sticks at the top in a ‘V’ shape to create the reindeer’s antlers. Then glue 2 brown mini popsicle sticks to each antler.
Add a Pair of Eyes and Yarn
Step 5: Next use the marker to draw on the eyes. You can also draw the eyes on paper, cut and glue them on.
Step 6: Then take the yarn and wrap it around the antlers securing the ends with glue.
