Difficulty Level; Easy

These reindeer noses are so cute. This tutorial uses an upcycled yankee candle jar, so has and airtight lid (or you could use a coffee jar). Therefore, this project was inexpensive to make and will make a great christmas food gift or stocking filler. There is also a reindeer nose free printable to go with it.

What you will need;

  1. A small jar ( I used a pre-used yankee candle jar, measuring just over 5″
  2. Scraps of Lightweight or medium weight hessian/burlap
  3. 2 googly eyes
  4. Red pom poms for the nose,
  5. Twigs for the antlers (i cut mine to about 5″)
  6. Twine to wrap around the antlers
  7. Twine or hessian ribbon for decoration
  8. Large packet of maltesers for the reindeers noses
  9. A reindeer nose printable tag (follow link below)
  10. Brown plain parcel gift tag to back the printable onto
  11. Hot glue gun and paper glue for the tag
  12. Scissors
  13. A red glace cherry for Rudolphs nose

How to make it;

  1. Cut out a piece of hessian for the face (mine measured 5’x4′) and glue it to the middle of the jar using just a little glue.
  2. Glue the eyes and nose onto the face.
  3. Draw a circle around another piece of hessian using the lid and cut it out and glue it to the top of the jar.
  4. Cut the twigs to size and hot glue them to the lid of the jar for the antlers.
  5. Wrap the twine around the twigs to hide the glue marks and tidy it up, using just enough glue to stick it.
  6. Tie the hessian ribbon around the lid, making it look like a scarf.
  7. Fill the jar up with maltesers and 1 glaced cherry for the nose.

To Make the tag;

  1. Print the reindeer noses labels out and cut (I backed mine onto brown card to compliment the rustic look, or you could print onto card)
  2. If printing on card  punch a hole at the top and thread some twine, creating a loop and attach it to the antler
  3. If backing on card, simply glue onto the card and thread some twine through the hole and attach it to the antler.
