Here's how to create
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Reindeer Ornament, gather all supplies. I love taking simple everyday supplies like wooden spring clothespins, which are 36 for $1.25 from Dollar Tree, and turning them into fun and festive Christmas ornaments. Just by changing the direction and pattern of the way the clothespins are attached.
Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. For each Reindeer, line up two full clothespins on your work surface, to create a V shape. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespin Reindeers with dark brown acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Attach two wiggle eyes to each Clothespin Reindeer with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue a red tinsel pom pom to the bottom of each Reindeer as the nose. Accent one clothespin Reindeer with a skinny plaid bow and the other with a mini holly leaf and red berries using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach each side of the loop to the right and left side of the back of the Clothespin Reindeer with the glue gun and glue sticks.
