Tutorial: Wooden Spoon Reindeer Ornament

Remember our little spoon snowman? Well, he needed a buddy, so enter in our little reindeer!

You will need:
One of those little ice cream spoons
Brown paint
A black Sharpie
Three small brown buttons
A small piece of ribbon
The tinniest red pom-pom you can find
A brown pipe cleaner

Paint your little spoon, brown. When it is dried, tie a little bow with your ribbon and glue over the part where the spoon narrows. Glue your three buttons down his front, and then add his face using the pom-pom as the nose. Cut small lengths of the pipe cleaner. Two about .5 inch to a full inch long. Glue them on the back to give him his antlers. Make a loop with your cord and hot glue both ends to the back of the spoon. If you want  you can glue two short (about a quarter inch) segments at the top of the forehead, you could also use a small amount of brown felt, if that is easier.

Can you believe how close Christmas is? I am not ready! Pause time so I can catch up!!!

He is adorable!! If I had some extra time (I never have *extra* time, but you know what I mean), I'd definitely be making these to include on packages. I'm bookmarking this page now so I can put it in a file for next year.
