Daisy/Brownie Reindeer Ornaments

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

  1. The girls wrote their names and the year at the bottom of the ornament.  (Great keepsake for parents or grandparents)
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
