Transform a candy bar into Rudolph with this festive Hershey Bar Reindeer craft. It is a fun and inexpensive DIY holiday gift idea that you can do with the kids. 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.
Also, check out this DIY Reindeer Ornament and this Rudolph Nutty Bars Christmas treat.
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!
