Reindeer & Xmas Tree Popstick Decos

final

Step 1:
Paint the popsicle sticks in your colour choice to match your project. For example, if you are doing the Reindeer project, then paint it brown, if the Tinsel Tree, then red, and blue for the Pom Pom Tree.
step-1
Step 2:
Using a hot glue gun (being careful not to burn yourself), glue the popsicle sticks together in a triangle shape, starting with joining 2 in a V shape.Skip to Step 3.1 for Reindeer continuation. 
step-2
Step 3.1:
Reindeer — Then glue the 3rd stick across the first 2, an inch or so down, leaving some space at the end of the triangle to form a shape of reindeer head.
step-3-1
Step 3.2:
Tinsel Tree & Pom Pom Tree — For these Christmas tree designs, cut the 3rd popsicle stick a bit shorter, and glue across the end of the V to give the triangle a taller shape like a tree. Glue the piece of popsicle stick you cut off at the bottom of the triangle tree shape to look as the tree trunk.
step-3-2
Step 4.1:
Reindeer — For the reindeer, use the hot glue gun to glue the eyes on to the popsicle sticks, halfway between the top and nose.
step-4-1
Step 4.2:
Tinsel Tree — Wrap the tinsel pipe cleaners around the tree, alternating in colours and direction to fully cover the tree.
step-4-2
Step 4.3:
Pom Pom Tree — Glue the pom poms in colourful pattern all over the front side of the popsicle sticks.
Step 5.1:
Reindeer — Add the red glitter nose using the glitter pen, or the glitter hot glue stick in the glue gun. You could also glue a red button on, or add a red pom pom for nose.
Step 5.2:
Cut a tinsel pipe cleaner in half, and twist around the top of reindeers head to make pretty antlers.
Step 6:
Tinsel Tree & Pom Pom Tree — Get creative to decorate your tree! For example, we cut a tinsel pipe cleaner into pieces, and twist them around each other to form a small star, leaving one star length longer than the rest. Glue this longer length to the back of the tree so the star sits on top.

Simply tie some nylon string around the top of reindeer and the trees to be able to hang for decoration
