Santa and his reindeer will definitely be stopping by for your babe with this Sparkly DIY Reindeer Food Ornament!
What you’ll need:
- Glitter card stock paper (white and gold)
- Pom-poms (red or pink)
- Plastic light bulb ornaments
- Hole puncher
- Low temp. glue gun
Step 1: Trace a reindeer head template on your white glitter card stock (you can find a basic reindeer head template online and trace it right on the back of the glitter paper). Do the same with the antlers onto gold glitter paper. Trace as many as you need and then cut out the heads and antlers. Once the head and antlers are cut out, using a dab of hot glue, glue the antlers to the back of the head.
Step 2: Using a single hole puncher, hole punch the top, center of the reindeer head.
Step 3: Using the low temp. glue gun, glue a pink or red pom-pom to the reindeer head as the nose.
Step 4: Use a spoon or scooper to fill up the light bulb ornaments with oats and glitter, alternating between each one until the ornament is filled (using a small kitchen funnel may be helpful with little ones to get the glitter and oats inside).
Note – As you’re filling up the DIY Reindeer Food Ornament with oats and glitter, give it a few shakes in between to really mix up the glitter within the oats. Once filled, put the topper back on the ornament.
Step 5: String any cute and fun ribbon through the hole in the center of the reindeer head and tie the reindeer head through the top of the light bulb ornament.
Ta-da! In 5 easy steps your DIY Reindeer Food Ornament is complete!
BONUS: You can always attach this cute little reindeer food poem to your DIY Reindeer Food Ornament as well:
‘Sprinkle on the lawn Christmas Eve night. The moonlight will make it sparkle bright. As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam, this will guide them to your home!’
Hang your Sparkly DIY Reindeer Food Ornament on your Christmas Tree until Christmas Eve, then sprinkle your Reindeer Food out on your front lawn!
About the Creator!
Hey, Y’all! I’m Jenna – a Jersey girl turned southern belle living in Knoxville, Tennessee with my husband and our sweet little girly girl, Wrigley (3.5).
I love finding and sharing easy ways to make everyday more magical and fun for Wrigley while adding a little splash of all my favorite fashion and little girl finds along the way.
My days typically consist of tutu-twirling dance parties, princess dress-up costumes, unicorns, crafting, all things pink and sparkly, and eating way too much sugar – all the while praying I’m raising this tiny gal of mine to know that the world needs her magic and that she’s fearfully and wonderfully made.
I’m so glad you stopped by. Come say hi and follow along over on Instagram, @splash.of.southern. I hope you enjoy this fun and easy DIY!
