Pipe Cleaner Reindeers




  • Pipe cleaner
  • Glue
  • Red bead


  1. Step 1

    Start with the head. Make a cloverleaf of loops at one end of a standard pipe cleaner (6 inches). Bend that stick at the 3 1/2-inch point to make a neck; the other half will be the back.

  2. Step 2

    Join another stick to the back with a twist. Position head over juncture of two sticks. Fold two 6-inch sticks in half, and twist around the torso for legs; tightly wind the remaining loose stick end up the neck. Curl another stick around a pencil, then wind the coil onto the body.

  3. Step 3

    For antlers, twist a 2 1/2-inch stick onto neck behind the ears; add smaller pieces to make points. Turn up the tail, bend up the feet, and play with the knees until he can stand. Glue on a red-bead nose.

    I wish someone would make this so we could watch, I can't figure out what the instructions are telling me and I really would like to make it, they are sooo cute

    I've done every single pipe cleaner ornament except for this one. I wish there was a video clip of this. I'm a visual learner and I just can't seem to understand how to begin!
