Rudolph and Frosty here are super simple. They’re just made from 1.5 inch terra cotta pots that you can buy at Michael’s! You’ll need ribbon, white paint, brown paint, sharpie markers (black, orange, and pink), ribbon, brown pipe cleaners, goggly eyes, and pompoms. You can use regular glue and let it set up, or if you have older kids, you can use the hot glue gun while they supervise- but you might still burn yourself….or maybe that’s just me.
Paint your pot brown for Rudolph or white for Frosty. Then, just let your child decorate! We added antlers and a red nose for our reindeer and ear muffs for frosty. Use ribbon to make a loop to hang your ornament. If you’re using regular glue or craft glue, be sure to allow enough time to fully dry before hanging. Hot glue will basically dry instantly.
Okay, so this guy is not so cute when you’re looking at him like this….but….
HE HAS A LIGHT UP NOSE!! These are just tea lights wrapped with a ribbon scarf and decorated with sharpies. I found the tiny tiny top hats on Amazon. They’re actually totally cute 🙂 You could draw circles for coal or even regular facial features. Be sure that when you buy your tea lights they already have the batteries in them. You can find REALLY cheap packages of them, but then you have to buy and install all the tiny batteries, so just save yourself the hassle and buy them with batteries inside 🙂
