Here's how to create Craft Stick Reindeer in 30 Minutes:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft stick Reindeer, gather all supplies. To create the Reindeer, line up five jumbo craft sticks on your work surface. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the Reindeer and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks. Using scissors, trim the two discarded pieces of jumbo craft sticks into pointed reindeer ears. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Cut four regular craft sticks in half with scissors. Attach four of the halves, at angles, to one full-size regular craft stick with a glue gun and glue sticks. Repeat with the second set of halves and one full craft stick to create the antlers.
Paint the front and sides of the Reindeer and ears with Milk Chocolate acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint the front and sides of the antlers with Dark Chocolate acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach the two antlers to the back of the Reindeer with a glue gun and glue sticks. Flip the Reindeer over and glue the ears to the top right and left sides. Glue a large red tinsel pom pom to the center of the Reindeer about one inch from the bottom, then attach two wiggle eyes.
Tie the green gingham ribbon into a small bow. Using scissors, trim any long ends in a triangle pattern. Attach the bow to the bottom of the Reindeer with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trimming the ends of the ribbon not only finishes the bow but also prevents the ribbon from fraying. To finish the Craft Stick Reindeer, create cheeks with pink acrylic craft paint and a sponge dabber. Set aside to let the paint dry. Draw half a smile with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications.
