Easy Kid's Reindeer Handprint Craft

This is such an easy craft project to make...you will need:

  • Brown Construction Paper Or Cardstock
  • Water Based Kid Safe Brown Paint
  • 2 Googly Eyes
  • A Red Pom Pom
  • A Piece Of Red Ribbon
  • Safety Scissors

Paint your child's hand with the brown paint.

Stamp your child's handprint on the construction paper or cardstock.

Cut out the handprint leaving a small border.

Glue on googly eyes and a red pom pom nose.

Poke a small hole at the top, thread the ribbon through and tie a knot in the ribbon.

Now you can hang this homemade handprint ornament to your Christmas tree or you can decorate a Christmas gift with it to add a special touch to that gift. I know I am always thrilled to receive a homemade gift that I can use year after year.

Where To Get Christmas Cupcake Papers

Here's How To Cut Your Angels

Making The Cupcake Paper Angel

Flatten two of the cupcake liners. Fold one in half as shown in the picture. Then fold the sides in til they meet. It will form a shape that's about one-third of a circle. You can glue down the sides on the back where they meet. That's going to be the body of your angel.

Fold the second cup in half and cut it into three even triangles. One can get thrown out, the remaining two will be your angel's wings.

Thread your needle with yarn and knot one end. Push the needle through the body to the point that will be the neck. Attach the styrofoam ball by piercing it with the threaded needle or attach your cardstock circle to the yarn using paste. Make a loop with your yarn over the top of the head and run your needle into the styrofoam again or against the back of your cardstock circle and glue it in place.

Remove the needle and cut the end of the yarn...but BEFORE YOU DO THAT - make sure your angel's head is attached and has a loop to hang it from your tree.
