Reindeer Canes

This year I had an epiphany: Instead of taking a Christmas card photo and addressing envelopes to the masses, I should spend that time putting something special together for the people who matter most. It’s the first year since the kids were born that we haven’t mailed a photo card to everyone in our address book! We’re working on handwriting notes and assembling little gifts (including these Reindeer Canes) for just our tribe, which we’ll be delivering to doorsteps throughout the month. So excited!

To make these Reindeer Canes, wrap two candy canes in jute twine. Hot-glue the end of the twine to the back so it stays put. Next, hot-glue googly eyes and a red pom-pom to the twine to give the look of Rudolph. We think these make the perfect little gift for classmates, teachers, and friends!
