Reindeer ornament crafts are fun to make during Christmas time. These fun Christmas craft ideas are fun for small children. In addition, they use items that you probably already have around the house.

Toilet Paper Reindeer Ornament

Materials you will need: toilet paper roll, 1-2 sheets of construction paper (or brown felt), 2 brown pipe cleaners (or twigs for the antlers), small red pom pom (for the nose), small white or brown pom pom (for the tail), 2 small googly eyes, yarn or ribbon for a hanger, glue, one section cup from an egg crate, brown paint or brown felt pen

1. Cut enough construction paper or brown felt so that you can completely cover the toilet paper roll. Secure it with glue.

2. Using the paint or felt marker, make the egg crate section brown.

3. Glue the googly eyes and red pom pom onto the outside of the egg crate section to make the reindeer's face.

4. Take the twigs, or shape the pipe cleaners into antlers. Glue to the top of the egg crate (above the face).

5. Next, glue the face (egg crate) onto one end of the toilet paper roll. Make sure you have the face pointed out, as to attach the head to the body.

6. Cut four leg shapes out of construction paper (or simply roll some pieces). If you want to use pipe cleaner for this too, you can. Glue the legs onto the body.

7. Glue the white or brown pom pom onto the backside of the reindeer ornament craft to give Rudolph a tail.

Clothespin Reindeer Ornament Crafts

This is one of my favorite Christmas ornament crafts. Not only is it a simple craft for ornaments, but it is also fun to put these on gifts as gift attachments.

Materials you will need: 2 no-roll clothespins (3 3/4"), brown paint, paintbrush, 6" piece of string or ribbon, small red pom pom, 2 small googly eyes, craft glue or hot glue gun and glue sticks

1. Hold the two clothespins together with one right-side up and the other upside-down. Over lap the top 1" on the clothespins and glue in place. Make sure the glue is dry before moving on to the next step.

2. Next, paint both of the clothespins brown. Make sure the entire surface is covered. Allow time to dry.

3. You will notice the reindeer shape. One side is the body and the other is the face and antlers. On the face side, glue the red pom pom at the bottom curve of the clothespin for the nose. Glue the eyes above the nose.

4. Create a hanger for the ornament with the string or ribbon by tying a know and gluing it onto the reindeer.

5. Optional: it is also fun to ribbon a small bell around Rudolph's neck.

I hope you enjoy making these fun, easy, and inexpensive reindeer ornament crafts. These kid-friendly Christmas crafts can be fun for children too when they have a little bit of help!
