Wood Slice Reindeer Ornament

Share this post

Easy ornaments I can make with my kids are something I can’t get enough of this holiday season.  Today I’m sharing a reindeer ornament made from a wood slice that is all kinds of cute.  My oldest helped make this one and my youngest made a paper version of her own.  Some very talented friends of mine are also sharing holiday projects today and I have them all linked at the end of this post so be sure to visit them for more creative inspiration.  

A cute reindeer ornament made with a wood slice

This wood slice reindeer ornament was inspired by a bag of wood slices at Hobby Lobby.  I love walking through the aisle of wood blanks at a craft store and waiting for inspiration to strike.  I picked up a few wood slices and added some other craft supplies I had at home to make this little reindeer.

I started by drilling a small hole in the top of the wood slice to make it into an ornament.  I painted the face of the reindeer brown, then added eyes mouth and of course a red nose. The antlers are curled brown fuzzy sticks and the ears are cut from cardstock.  I tied a small bow to give this reindeer a bow tie, you could also cut one from cardstock.  Using hot glue I attached all the pieces and threaded twine through the hole to create an ornament.

My 3 year old created her own little reindeer out of paper.  I used the same process but she decorated the face with markers and glitter glue.  Both reindeer are hanging happily on our tree this Christmas.

I like the idea! I have some unused wood slices from my previous project and I now know how to use them to make some cute and funny things.
