reindeerCandy Cane Reindeer

Fun craft for the kids!

You will need:

  • Craft glue or hot glue
  • Large candy canes
  • Red candies (like red hots) or red pom-poms
  • Small googly eyes
  • Brown pipe cleaners

How to Make Candy Cane Reindeer:

  1. Place a dab of craft glue or hot glue on the end of a candy cane’s hook and press a red candy or red pom-pom onto the glue. Repeat until all of your candy canes have red “noses.”
  2. Smear a strip of glue about 1 inch above the nose and press two googly eyes onto the glue.
  3. Twist a brown pipe cleaner at the top of the candy cane, right where it starts to curve. Pinch each side several times, so that it has bends that resemble reindeer antlers. If your pipe cleaner seems to slip around, add a dab of glue to the bottom so that it doesn’t slide.

Your candy cane reindeer are now finished. Although the candy canes are edible, the small parts and glue on the canes make these more appropriate for decorations than eating. If you want entirely edible candy cane reindeer, you could use royal icing to glue on the candy nose and use it to make the reindeer’s eyes.
