Not long now before Santa and his reindeers starts their journey round the world, that gives just enough time to make one more Christmas DIY : Rudolph the red nosed reindeer tree decoration. A super cute Christmas activity that the kids will love to do and that you love since it will be keeping them occupied (well, at least for a little while !)
Christmas DIY: make your own Rudolph the red nosed reindeer tree decoration
Not only this tree hanger is super cute, it is also so fun and easy to make with the kids. It’s the perfect DIY activity to make this holiday !
A little word of warning though, the risk is that your children love it so much they might go through your whole stock of clothespegs 😉.
To make this reindeer hanging decoration you will need:
- 4 wooden clothespins
- 2 littles eyes (googly or not)
- One little red pompom
- Glitter in the colour of your choice (here we used gold glitter)
- Some gold string/twine
- A black felt tip pen
- Liquid glue
- And ideally a glue gun too
Making Rudolph the red nosed reindeer tree decoration step by step
The first stage of this DIY is to make Rudolph’s head and front.
For this, put some liquid glue on the top of one side of the peg (the part that you pinch to open the clothespin).
Next, sprinkle it with the glitter.
Now, glue just below where the glitter stops, the two little eyes
Add a drop of glue blow to stick the red pompom to make the nose
Finish this stage by cutting a length of string and sticking it at the back of the peg (making a loop so you can hang it)
The following stage consists of making Rudolph’s body by coloring a small black square at the top of each of the 3 remaining pegs. Next turn them upside down so the little black squares make the hoofs and stick ticking the 3 clothespegs together with the glue gun.
Finally, stick Rudolph’s head at one end of the body offset towards the top.
And here it is, your very own Rudolph the red nosed reindeer!
Now all you have to do is to find its place of proud on your Christmas tree 😊 or in your house to complete your Christmas decor.
