Craft Instructions

Candy Cane Reindeers make a great addition to a holiday gift basket or Christmas stocking. Hang them on the Christmas tree and let the kiddies take them home when they visit.

  • Leave the wrapper on your candy cane.
  • Hot glue or use glue dots to attach a pompom nose and two googly eyes to your candy cane as pictured.
  • Cut a brown pipe cleaner in half. Set one half aside for another reindeer.
  • Attach the center of the pipe cleaner to the bend in the candy cane and twist the pipe cleaner around the candy cane to keep it in place.
  • Bend both ends of the pipe cleaner into a V shape.
