December is that month when reindeer finally get their moment in the spotlight! They are in charge of getting Santa Claus to where he needs to be, so we basically owe all of our gifts to the Reindeer Express. In honor of these magical animals and the spirit of Christmas, here are some adorable reindeer crafts! You can finally make your very own Dasher, Dancer and Prancer … but mostly Rudolph!
Wine Cork Reindeer
Wine corks have proven to be such a handy craft material! Just look at this cute little wine cork reindeer by Dannon K Collard! It immediately makes you feel less guilty about all those bottles of wine, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, you’re still on Santa’s nice list!
