Craft Project Directions: To make this ornament you will need two candy canes, 2 pipe cleaner, a piece of ribbon, and some construction paper. First create a heart shape with the two candy canes- placing the bended ends together. Tape them in place. This is the head of your reindeer. Next take a pipe cleaner and cut it into 2 and 3 inch lengths. Now take another pipe cleaner and bend it into a V. Twist the smaller pieces of pipe cleaner you cut before around the pipe cleaner V you made to make reindeer antlers. When you are finished making your antlers, tape or twist them around the corners of your candy cane reindeer head. Now decorate your reindeer's face by adding a red construction paper ball (or use a red hershey's kiss) to the V at the base of the candy canes for a bright shining nose and glue construction paper eyes (or googly eyes) on either side. Loop a piece of ribbon through the top of the heart and hang on your tree.

Do you like woodland creatures ? Are you captivated by squirrels, chipmunks, and the like. If you do you are sure to enjoy this simple animal craft project.
You can make a super simple squirrel from a paper bag and a pinecone.
Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need a paper bag (lunch bag size), a pine cone, a piece of ribbon, brown construction paper, scissors, glue, tape, scrap papers, and crayons.
To begin, open the paper bag and stuff it most of the way full with old paper scraps. You could use an old newspaper.
Next fold over the opening of the bag so it becomes a flat rectangle and tape it shut. Make sure that this end is flat, otherwise your squirrel won't stand up straight.
Next take a piece of colorful ribbon and tie it tightly around the bag about 2/3 of the way up from the bottom. This will differentiate your squirrel's head from his body.
Tie the ribbon with a nice bow in the front. Now cut out 4 very simple squirrel arms and legs. You can cut just very basic shapes - small rectangles with curved ends. Tape or glue them onto the bottom and sides of the paper bag.
Next cut out two squirrel ears and tape or glue them onto the top of the squirrel's head.
Next take your pinecone and attach it to the back side of the paper bag to make a great tail for your squirrel! Tape or glue it in place.
Now decorate your squirrel's face, adding great facial features.
When you are finished, place him some place special!
