Toilet Roll Reindeer: Christmas Crafts for Kids

I have a children's holiday craft today: reindeer made from toilet paper rolls. These are super quick and were easy to make with items we had around the house.  

We started with three empty toilet paper rolls, cut each roll in half, then choose patterned paper to cover them in. I used paper from Fancy Pants Designs, the new Timber Grove collection.  

We cut the paper into strips, 2 inches wide by 6 inches long, then glued the strips around the rolls. 

After the glue was dry, we punched two holes for antlers near the top of the toilet rolls.  I ran one long pipe cleaner through both holes. The middle of the pipe cleaner is the perfect spot for an ornament hanger. 

To curl the antlers, we wrapped the pipe cleaners around a pen. 

Decorate as desired. 

Then they're ready for the tree!
