Rudolph The Reindeer Mason Jar Craft
The holidays are upon us! Are you excited? There are so many wonderful things to do in the Tampa Bay area this time of year! Between going to holiday festivities, grocery shopping, baking cookies, and holiday shopping, I know many of us like to get a bit crafty.
I have an adorable Reindeer Mason Jar craft to share with you guys today that makes for a fabulous decoration at home, but it also makes for a great gift idea! You can fill you “reindeer” with chocolates, a gift card, you name it! You could even get crazy and make all eight reindeer and display them on your mantle at home! Want to know how to make a Santa Mason Jar to guide that sleigh of eight reindeer? Head here and check out my tutorial.
Here’s what you need to make Rudolph the Reindeer Mason Jars:
- Brown Spray Paint – I used Rust Oleum Semi-Gloss, you can pick up a can at Walmart for under $4
- Mason Jars – I got a 12 pack at Walmart for under $9
- Googly Eyes – I got a package for under $2 at Walmart
- Red Pom-Poms – You guessed it, Walmart…I got a package for under $2
- Brown Pipe Cleaners – Again, you can find these at Walmart if you don’t have some at home!
- Glue – I used hot glue, but super glue would also work
Here’s how to make your Reindeer Mason Jars:
- Take the lid off the mason jar, and then spray the entire jar brown – I recommend doing this outside (I place my hand inside the jar partially while spraying)
- Allow the jar to dry – I sprayed mine then did some errands in the house – about 2 hours later it was definitely dry
- Using hot glue, glue the eyes and “nose” (the red pom-pom) onto your jar
- To make the antlers, you will need 2 pipe cleaners. Twist the two ends together so you have one long pipe cleaner. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the top of your jar, starting at the front and ending in the back. Do one simple twist in the ends of the pipe cleaner so that it will stay up on the jar. Gently bend the remainder of the pipe cleaner on both sides to resemble antlers.
If you take out the time that the jar needs to dry, you will have your adorable Rudolph the Reindeer Craft done in under 10 minutes! If you are really crafty, I would say just 5 minutes 🙂
