Reindeer Noses + FREE Printable Tag

Contributor: Sarah from Chickie Momma Crafts:

I saw these on Pinterest a few months back and knew my boys would love them.  They love reindeer and this year there are real live ones to go visit just down the road from us at Watson’s Nursery in Puyallup!  I also thought these would make a fun little gift for his preschool secretary and the other students in his class.  Super easy and affordable to make.

There are so many different versions of these that you can make – we have a few ideas that you could use or you could come up with something unique, too.

Free Printable “Reindeer Noses” tag:

We’ve also included a FREE printable Reindeer Noses tag that you can use which is in PDF form, so you should be able to print it right off on paper or cardstock to use.

Supplies:

  • Red Hots candies (or you could use Whopper candy for the noses & then add in one red candy intermixed within them.) You could also use red jelly beans or any other favorite red or brown candies.  *I found the Red Hot candies very cheap at Winco in the bulk bins.
  • Mini ziploc bags or cellophane bags from Michael’s or another craft store (I found mine years ago at Paper Zone but any craft store would have them). Mine are size 3″ x 5″.
  • Christmas scrapbook paper (or just a piece of plain cardstock paper)

Steps:

  1. Fill up the bags with your candies (Red Hots, Whoppers, etc)
  2. Cut scrapbook paper into 3.5″ x 6″ rectangles and then fold them so they are 3.5″ x 3″ .
  3. Staple the scrapbook paper to the top of the cellophane or ziploc bag.
  4. Print off the Reindeer Noses free printable tag & cut them into 3″ x 2.5″ rectangles.  {You’ll notice there is no “o” in noses”.}
  5. You can use glue to draw an “o” in “noses” & sprinkle red glitter on top. Or use a red pom-pom, red buttons, or even glue on a red hot candy.
  6. After your “o” is dry, then glue your Reindeer Noses printable onto the scrapbook paper to finish your tag.

Super simple and fun!!  These would make cute neighbor gifts for other neighborhood kids or great little stocking stuffers!! Or maybe make these to pass out to all the kids in your child’s classroom as a fun yet thrifty little Christmas gift!
