    • Easy
    • 30 min
    • 5 - 12
    • Christmas

    Supplies Needed

    Instructions

    1. Glue a pair of Jiggly Eyes to the straight part of a candy cane, just before it starts to curve. Make sure the hook of the candy cane is facing away from you.
    2. Glue a pom pom to the candy cane below the eyes. This will be the nose.
    3. Tie a ribbon around the candy cane below the nose.
    4. Take a pipe cleaner and form it into a "U" shape. Place the "U" shape under the hook of the candy cane with the two sides of the pipe cleaner pointing upward. Twist the two sides of the pipe cleaner together over the top of the candy cane. Form the two sides of the pipe cleaner into antlers.
    5. Use the hook of the candy cane to hang up your candy cane reindeer as an ornament!

    Time-Saving Hints:

    • Leave the candy cane wrapped in plastic. That way, it can be eaten later if wanted.
