Toilet Roll Reindeer: a cute homemade Christmas ornament for kids to make…
What is it about toilet roll crafts? I just love them. So when I saw Kiki Create’s Christmas Critters over at Craft Snob the other day, I added toilet roll reindeer to my list of Christmas Craft Ideas.
These reindeer are easy to make! Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
Toilet roll reindeer supplies:
- toilet roll tubes (or paper towel rolls, wrapping paper rolls etc.)
- brown wallpaper samples (you could use sand paper or brown paint)
- brown pipe cleaners
- red artificial berries or red pom poms, buttons etc.
- googly eyes
Wallpaper sample books: a thrifty craft supply
Yes, I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again! Wallpaper sample books are awesome when you’re crafting with kids. The colours, patterns and textures are great for so many projects, and it beats buying expensive scrapbooking paper. Just ask at your local paint and paper shop if they have any expired wallpaper books that they could part with. My store here usually hands me over 4 or 5 books at a time, happy that they don’t have to pay to dispose of them in the trash.
How we made our toilet roll reindeer:
For the noses, we used some artifitcial berries that were on a wire. We poked that wire through a hole in the front of the tube, and bent the wire inside the tube, to hold the nose in place.
