Candy Cane Reindeer

Candy Cane Reindeer

Use pipe cleaners and candy canes to DIY these funny reindeers!

What you need

Candy Cane
googly eyes
small red pom pom
brown pipe cleaner
glue (I use a little hot glue to make the materials affix better)


Take the pipe cleaner and bend it in half, place the bend of the pipe cleaner under the arch of the candy cane and bring the ends over the top of the arch.  Wrap each end around the arch 1 time then twist the ends together at the base (at the top of the arch).

Bend the remaining lengths like a zig zag for the antlers.

Put a little bit of glue on each of the googly eyes and put them side by side on the candy cane (on the short side – mid way down).

Put a little bit of glue on the red pom pom and affix at the end of the short side for a nose.

You can give the candy cane reindeer to classes, friends, decorate packages or hang on the tree. :0)  enjoy!
