Candy Cane Reindeer Craft

I was looking for fun holiday treats to put in Tim’s Christmas care package and I kept coming across candy cane reindeer.   I thought they were the cutest thing but my hubby is not a fan of candy canes.

Then I had an idea!

Make Candy Cane Reindeer using the plastic candy canes filled with candy!!

Candy Reindeer

How cute is this little fellow?

I used plastic candy canes filled with Reese’s pieces since those are his favorite but you could use any of the ones they have.  I found mine for $1.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 plastic candy canes filled with candy
  • 1 toilet paper roll
  • two wiggly eyes
  • red yarn
  • one jingle bell
  • baker’s twine
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • tape

Step 1:  Tape two plastic candy canes together.

Step 2: Cut toilet paper roll and wrap around both candy canes.  Tape or glue.

Step 3.  Make a yarn pom pom.  I used this tutorial by Dana Made It and just used my fingers.

Step 4:  Glue eyes and yarn pom pom on using glue gun.

Step 5:  Wrap baker’s twine around a few times.   Add jingle bell and tie a bow.

Step 6:  Now hold it out and admire your reindeer.

Isn’t he adorable?  I am so happy with the way it turned out and now Connor wants to make them for all his friends at school.

I just love when projects are easy and come out the way I imagined it in my head!

Happy Holidays!!

  3. Just made two of these in under 5 minutes. So easy and cute. I used a sparkly red Pom Pom because I had those on hand. Unfortunately they’re not as big and cute but they do the job. Also unused a pipe cleaner instead of twine also had it in hand.
