Fun Kids Craft Activity
Do you kids like to do fun paper crafts? Quilling is the new crafting method that my son and I LOVE to do. Here is a cute reindeer craft to make this winter!
List of Supplies:
- Craft paper – brown
- Quilling strips – light brown, dark brown, pink and red
- Googly eyes
- Craft glue or glue stick
- Slotted quilling tool
To make the quilled reindeer pattern like these check out the list including each strip color, size and shape made from them-
- 20 inches light brown strip – loose coil
- 12 inches light brown strip – loose coil
- 12 inches dark brown strip (2) – loose coils
- 6 inches loose strips (4) – 2 loose coils
- 12 inches red strip – tight coil
- 3 inches pink strip and 6 inches light brown strip (2 set) – 2 teardrop shapes (with the pink strip inside the shape)
Take any 2 small dark brown loose coils and 1 big dark brown loose coil. Press all of them to create thin lens shapes. Attach the 2 small thin lens shapes on 2 sides of the big thin lens shape. This will be the horn of the reindeer. Similarly make the other horn.
Cut out a small piece of light brown craft paper or cardstock paper and the 2 light brown loose coils.
Glue the big loose coil on the craft paper, keeping enough space for the other light brown loose coil.
Press the small loose coil and create a half moon shape. Glue the half moon shape on the craft paper, adjacent to the big loose coil. Allow the glue to dry for a while.
Cut the craft paper around the outer sides of the quilled shapes.
Take the red tight coil and glue it on the light brown loose coil, slightly near its bottom part. Also glue the pink and light brown teardrop shapes (ears) on the top side of the half moon shape.
Take the horn patterns prepared in step two and attach them with the half moon shape, between the ears.
Attach the googly eyes on the half moon shape.
Allow the glue to dry and done!
