Reindeer

I thought I’d show off a few of the crafts we made at our church’s Advent Workshop. They’re cute and easy. It’s a family event and the activities were designed so a wide age group could participate.

Reindeer

Isn’t she adorabe? The gave us the wooden shape with the holes drilled in the top for the candy canes. I painted on the face with a Sharpie paint marker. They did have google eyes and a cute little red pom-pom nose to glue on instead, but I like the way she turned out. There were several choices of ribbon and I just made a little bow and hot-glued it on. It was actually supposed to be between the antlers, which would have been a little less girly, but I think she’s cute.

Pinecone

This is one of those cinnamon-scented pine cones. They organizer hot-glued a ribbon loop on top and then we painted the tips to look like they had snow on them. After that dried, we added glitter glue to give it some sparkle. I used red, as you can see, and Amber used green.

Nutcracker

This is Amber’s nutcracker. Mine didn’t turn out so nicely. They were little unfinished wooden nutcrackers that we painted with a variety of Sharpie marker pens.

We also decorated clear glass ornament, but my photos of those didn’t turn out so well. I have to admit, I love making Christmas crafts. I’ve still got a couple I’m working on. I’ll share photos when, and if, they turn out well.
