reindeer cup craft instructions

1. Trace and cut around hands to create the reindeer antlers. Glue one clear plastic cup on the other as shown (1).

2. Stuff the head sections with your choice of gift (egg cup, washer), paper or cellophane. Just keep the head section light so it doesn’t topple over.

3. Fill the body cup section with lollies or individually wrapped chocolates.

4. Using the cup as a template, cut a cardboard circle and seal the end of both cups with tape. Address the gift on the base of the cup.

5. Decorate with eyes, pom pom for nose and ribbon around the neck.
