Sometimes it seems like even when all the cookies are baked, the lights are strung, the tinsel is… tinsel-ed, your holiday party could use a little something extra. We’ve come up with the cutest way to add some whimsy to your decor with our DIY Rudolph Tree! And the best part? It only takes four easy steps!
To make your own adorable Rudolph, you’ll need:
- 3 foot tree in color of your choice
- one 5 inch red honeycomb
- one paperclip
- one sheet of 12 x 12 heavy paper for antlers
- one sheet of 8.5 x 11 heavy paper for eyelashes
- Rudolph printable
Remember, your Rudolph is completely up to you! You can use any color of tree, paper, or honeycomb to make it your own!
1. Print and cut out our Rudolph printable.
Print out our Rudolph printable, and cut out both the antler and eyelash. Trace the antler onto the back of your 12 x 12 paper. Make sure to flip your template when tracing the second antler. Cut out Rudolph’s antlers! We, of course, chose to give our reindeer gold glitter antlers.
2. Make some eyelashes!
Trace the eyelash from our printable twice on your 8.5 x 11 paper and cut them out.
3. Time for that magical nose.
Take your honeycomb and fold it out fully. You can secure it with a paperclip instead of adhesive so you can fold the honeycomb flat and use it again in the future!
4. Now we can assemble Rudolph!
Place your antlers on the tree, and secure them in place by wrapping a branch around the base of the antler. Rudolph’s eyelashes rest nestled in branches of the tree. Most honeycombs have an attached string for hanging, so we hung our nose from a front middle branch of the tree.
Let us see what you create with #partywithjollity on Facebook and Instagram! We can’t wait to see your Rudolph!
