A couple of weeks ago, my co-leaders and I were looking for some fun, easy ornaments for our Daisy and Brownie Girl Scouts to complete. Our girls had 2 ½ hours to go to 10 different stations making crafts to take home – this was called a Make and Take Workshop.
While researching, we came across this great site called littlebitfunky.com in which she had made these adorable reindeer ornaments. (check her out for her version and a few different variations) We decided to try them out with a few modifications. The result: an easy, cheap, awesome craft that our girls and parents loved.
A few of the finished products…
The only things we needed were some brown paint, a black Sharpie, red sticker gems (original was done with red paint) and an ornament for each girl. Sharpies we had, brown paint was $.50 at Walmart, red gem stickers were $1.99 and the ornaments were only $3.00 for 12. So far, so good!
How to make it
- The girls wrote their names and the year at the bottom of the ornament. (Great keepsake for parents or grandparents)
- Next, they put their thumb in the brown paint and added their print to the ornament. I had them do it thick since we were only adding 1 print.
- Their ornaments were allowed to dry for about 10-15 min. Once dry, they added the antlers, and a red gem to stand for Rudolph’s nose.
They looked super cute and the girls couldn’t wait to put them on their tree.
Special thanks to littlebitfunky.com for the original idea.
