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!!
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
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!
