Rudolph the Reindeer Wall Picture

Why not make this adorable Rudolph wall picture this holiday season.  With his big red nose and jingle bells, he makes a fun addition to any door or wall. We laminated this version so that he could be used inside or outdoors. 

 

What you’ll need:

  • Brown, tan, white and black  construction paper

  • One red metallic pipe cleaner

  • 5 small craft bells

  • Scissors

  • Glue stick

  • Tape

  • Kidfunideas Rudolph  pattern

  • One laminating machine

  • Hole punch and ribbon

 

How to make it:

  1. Cut out the reindeer pattern pieces in the color construction paper indicated on the pattern.

  2. Start by assembling the face.  Glue on the eyes, ears, and red nose to the facepiece.  Laminate this section, trim the excess and set it aside.

  3. Tape the two antlers together at the bottom and laminate that section next, trimming away the lamination around the outside edges and bottom of the antlers but leaving the lamination intact between the antlers at the top.  Tape the antlers to the face section on the back of the head with tape.

  4. Next, assemble the body by gluing the tail to the back of the body piece and then gluing the chest piece to the front of the body piece.  Laminate this next section, trim away the excess lamination, and then attach the body piece to the back of the head with tape.

  5. Assemble the legs by putting the black hooves on the ends of the legs and taping them together at the top of the legs.  Laminate this last section, trim away the excess, and then attach the legs with tape to the back of the body piece.

  6. To make the jingle bell necklace, thread 5 bells onto the pipe cleaner and use tape to attach the necklace back to the body piece.

  7. Finally, to hang your Rudolph, use a hole punch to make a hole in the lamination between the two antlers and thread some ribbon through the hole knotting the ends.
