Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Bag


I found this in the Family Fun Magazine website and pinned it, but when I went back to the link it was dead.  So…  here is how I made their craft from the photo I still have.  I thought this would be fun to make and then fill with popcorn for the kids while we watch “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”  My crazy self actually made 20 of them for Maddox’s class party.  It took an hour while watching TV.  Not bad.

Plus, I had to find some use for all those bags I purchased for our Halloween craft here:

4.  Cut a 1″ circle from the red construction paper or use the pom pom.
5.  Use the leftover brown paper bag to cut out the ears – I made ovals about 1.5″ wide

6.  Glue the googly eyes to the black circles.  Then glue those to the paper bag.

Now to make like 20 of these, I learned that you can cut the construction paper into thirds and get 3 antlers out of each strip.  This makes a total of 9 antlers per piece of construction paper.
