My children have all kinds of fun ideas for Christmas crafts at the moment. I am trying to rein them back a little as we still have a few weeks to go but I love the fact they are excited for Christmas (I am too!).
We picked up some really fun fillable baubles from our local craft shop and I knew they would be perfect for making our own hanging ornaments. We used them for Reindeer nose ornaments!
Equipment to make Reindeer nose ornaments:
Fillable baubles, ours are from Hobbycraft
Chocolate malt calls
Bostik Glu Dots
Red pom poms
How to make Reindeer nose ornaments:
First fill your baubles with the chocolate malt balls. You can probably imagine how many fell on the floor and had to be eaten during this simple step 🙂
Then we made our baubles into Rudolph the Red Nosed reindeer with the help of a red pom pom nose and google eyes.
We finished our ornaments off with pipe cleaners antlers and threaded some ric rac through to hang them up. It’s going to be a few weeks until we start decorating. I wonder if these will last intact – somehow I don’t think they will!
Today I’m taking part in the Kid Made Christmas Ornaments Blog Hop organised by Crafty Mama in Me.
