Reading Time: < 1 minute 

This is a craft I did as a little girl with my mother. We would make more to add to the Christmas tree each year. Enjoy making this simple and fun craft with your children this holiday season.


  • clothespins  (Please note that you you do not need the ones with a spring)
  • Small red pom poms, red marker or red round beads
  • glue
  • wiggly eyes (optional)
  • glitter (optional)


  • Take two clothespins and glue them together, in the same direction, to make the body of the reindeer.
  • Take one clothespin and add a dab of glue to the round part of the pin for the nose. Apply a red pom pom, red bead or draw it on with a red marker.
  • Take a small amount of glue and add the eyes, or use black, blue or brown marker to draw on the eyes.
  • Glue head to the body to complete the reinder.

Other ideas:

  • Add glitter tothe antlers.
  • Add eyelashes to the eyes to make a girl.
  • Add a small bow above her eyes if you want.
  • Tie a piece of ribbon around it's neck for a scarf.

Remember these reindeers make a great gifts for teachers, family or friends.
