Reindeer Noses~ Easy Christmas Craft
I’m not sure how Rudolph and his buddies would feel about their noses being considered food… but I am thinking these would be so cute to hand out to my kids’ classes at their school Christmas party!
What you will need:
Whoppers chocolate candy
Red jaw breakers or Atomic fireballs
Snack size Ziploc bags
Christmas card stock
White printer paper
To begin, the size of the Ziploc snack bags are 6 1/2 x 3 1/4. You will want your card stock to be 6 1/2 inches wide so that it fits together seamlessly.
You can do a plain rectangle, or cut out in a design. This is the shape I used for my base. If you are going to cut it in a shape you will want to make sure it is symmetrical (so it can be folded in half and be the same on both sides).
Find a cute reindeer clip art that is free to use. I used my Silhouette machine to do my creating in. It was, by far, the best gift I have ever received and I use it almost daily. If you are someone that crafts a lot, I would highly recommend you consider getting one. They are amazing. If you know a crafter and are looking for a great Christmas gift, you can’t go wrong with one of the Silhouette machines! They have two sizes here and here. Okay, sorry about that. I absolutely love my Silhouette and get a little excited when I start talking about it!
On with the tutorial.
If you don’t have a program to create in, there is no need for expensive products, just make it in Microsoft Publisher, or a similar program. Just be sure that you are putting your clip art and text in with plenty of room to cut around. It would also be cute if you made a finger print reindeer, and simply wrote “reindeer noses” next to it. That would be a super cute way to get the kids involved too! Remember, this is going to be folded in half also, so don’t put your design right in the middle!
Cut the same shape as your base card stock around your words and clip art. Glue that on to the card stock base. Fill your snack bag up with whoppers. I used one for each of Santa’s reindeer excluding Rudolph. (Just in case you aren’t sure that would be it is 8.) Throw in a red jaw breaker or an atomic fire ball for Rudolph’s nose. Seal the baggie and staple your label on to the top of your baggie. You want to cover the closure so it looks nice and pretty.
There you have it! A craft you can hand to the kid’s school class, use as party favors or keep by the door for those unexpected carolers!
