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.
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.

Reindeer Ornament Supplies
- Wood Slice – similar to these
- Hot Glue
- Brown Fuzzy Stick
- Assorted craft paint
- Paint brush
- Assorted cardstock
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.
