Are you looking for homemade Christmas decorations for kids ? We love this Rudolph Hanging Decoration as it is made with your child’s own footprint and handprints. We’ve made them a few years in a row, in our house, and it’s lovely to see the decorations getting bigger over the years!
What you need:
- Brown paper (you can use craft paper or just recycle a brown paper bag)
- Pen or pencil
- Googly eyes (available at most craft outlets)
- Red pompom (availabe at most craft outlets), or glitter.
What you do:
- Trace the child’s footprint on the paper – this will be the reindeer’s head
- Trace the child’s handprints on the paper (both hands) – these will be the antlers (Note: if you are doing this craft with more than one child, make sure to write their names or initials on the reverse side of each handprint and footprint.)
- Glue the antlers to the back of the head (at the top)
- Glue the googly eyes to the face. If you don’t have googly eyes, it’s easy to make them from paper – just cut circles from black paper and glue onto ovals cut from white paper.
- Glue the nose (red pompom/glitter) with glue. If you don’t have a pompom/glitter, you can make the nose from a circle of red paper, felt, etc.
- When the glue is dry, loop the string and tape it to the back of the head between the antlers.
- The reindeer decoration is now ready to hang on the tree.
