Reindeer Homemade christmas gift

You will make your reindeer towel by first folding your towel in half and then half again giving you a view of one quarter of your washcloth. Hot glue on two googly eyes and a red pom-pom nose about an inch from the inside folded corner of your towel. When you unfold your towel, they will be just off center with the nose closest to the center.

Assemble antlers by cutting one white pipe cleaner in half. Crease your second pipe cleaner in half and bend and shape the pipe cleaner to resemble antlers. Add your cut pieces a few inches down from each end of your folded pipe cleaner twisting on the pipe cleaner to secure it in place and then shaping and bending to form antlers. Add jingle bells to the ends of your pipe cleaners.

The last step is to fold your reindeer around your bar of soap or whatever else you may be gifting. Place the bar of soap at a 45-degree angle in the center of your upside-down washcloth. Fold up the washcloth grabbing the eyes and nose glued side first to cover the bar of soap. Next, take the alternate side bring it forward an over to the front. Finally, pull up the right and left side of the towel together at the same time forming ears for your reindeer. Secure with a piece of ribbon and tuck in the antlers.

My grandsons and I have craft day every week. After seeing these we are going to make these for their pre-school and their teachers for a Christmas gift. They are just so cute. Thank you for the idea. I think I am going to put hand sanitizer in them.
