How to Make: Reindeer Ornaments

 I got up this morning on a mission to make Reindeer Ornaments 
using leftover Wrapping Paper RollsChristmas Time = Craft Time

They are really simple to make (especially if you have a glue gun)

Here's my "Step by Step" Instructions...

Step One: Cut a 3-5 inch section of wrapping paper (or use an empty toilet roll)

Step Two: Cut 3 vertical rectangles along the 
bottom of the roll to resemble reindeer hooves  

Step Three: Paint the body of the roll

I live for stuff like this lol

Step Four: Pretend you're Rudolf

 Step Five: Glue on pompoms for the nose and googly eyes for the...well, eyes!

 Step Six: Glue on tree branch pieces for antlers

You can make a little team of reindeer too :)

And you can make dozens of them for under $7.00!

 Snacking Sleigh approved :)

 Step Seven: Hang them on the Christmas Tree

I used to collect toilet paper rolls for stuff like that. I saved them up from when I was a little girl, until I was about 17. I had boxes full, and I thought that I would use them for crafts when I became a teacher. My boyfriend (now husband) made me throw them out when he was helping me clean my room one time. I still give him crap for it :-)
