  • Tealight holder or flower pot
  • Small pom pom
  • Large google eyes
  • Brown pipecleaners
  • Red glitter
  • Gold glitter glue
  • Brown felt
  • Pink felt

  1. Paint tea light holder or flower pot red with poster paint or acrylic. Once this is dry, paint it again with PVA glue and shake on some red glitter.
  2. Paint polyball brown with acrylic paint and leave to dry.
  3. Cut two triangles from brown felt. Stick on a smaller piece of pink foam and fold the edges of the felt inwards to create Rudolph’s ears. Glue on to the polyball.
  4. Make the antlers by twisting brown pipecleaners into shape.
  5. Poke a hole in the polyball in front of each ear. Push the end of each antler into the hole.
  6. Glue a red pom pom on for Rudolph’s nose and stick on two google eyes.
  7. Place the polyball into the pot and use gold glitter glue to decorate the rim.
