Cut and Trace Template

Use scissors to cut out the reindeer head template (Image 1). Create two reindeer heads by tracing the template shape twice onto a piece of brown felt (Image 2).

Attach Nose and Eyes

Hot-glue a pom-pom nose onto the bottom of one of the reindeer heads (Image 1) then attach two googly eyes to the face, above the pom-pom nose (Image 2).

Create Pocket for Candy Canes

Cut 2 small felt ovals for ears and attach those beside each eye. Hot-glue the two pieces of felt together, keeping the top portion of the head open.
