As the Christmas holiday quickly approaches, I have another fun holiday craft to share with you – Hershey Bar Reindeer. This one is very simple and a great one to do with the kids. As with most craft projects, I didn’t have all of the supplies to make what I was envisioning. Our Grateful Turkey Box craft for Thanksgiving took the last of our brown craft paper, so I made do with brown packing paper. For the antlers I made used pipe cleaners. Even with a few deviations from my initial plans, these Hershey Bar Reindeer turned out pretty cute.
This is a such fun way to spiff up those candy bar stocking stuffers, and also makes as an inexpensive gift for your children’s friends.
Here’s what you’ll need for each reindeer:
light/dark brown craft paper or packing paper
black pipe cleaners (2 per Hershey Bar)
red pom pom for the nose
2 googly eyes
Shape each pipe cleaner to form antlers and secure to back of the candy bar with tape. Measure and cut a piece of lighter brown paper that will wrap around the candy bar, exposing the ends, and secure with a piece of tape. Glue on pom pom for nose. Draw 2 circles out of the dark brown paper and glue on for the eyes. Add 2 googly eyes. Draw on eye brows and mouth. To create fur at the top of the reindeer’s head, simply cut a small piece of brown paper that is scalloped one side.
These are so easy to make! Enjoy!
