Light Bulb Reindeer Craft

Use these free directions and pattern to create a reindeer Christmas tree ornament using an old light bulb.

* Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
* Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

* Light Bulb
* Newspaper
* Paper Mache Paste
* Paint
* Craft Foam or Felt
* Ribbon
* 3/4-Inch Red Pom-Pom
* Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
* Paint Brush
* Scissors

I put 3 layers of paper mache on my light bulb first. Read this article about how to paper mache.

Paint the light bulb with brown paint. Let the paint dry completely. I set the neck of the light bulb into an empty film container. This worked great while the paint dried!

With the neck of the light bulb pointing up, paint eyes and a mouth on the reindeer. Glue on the red, pom-pom nose.

Cut two antlers out of fun foam or felt using the pattern below. Glue one to each side of the light bulb neck.
