Rudolf the reindeer crafts from paper plate


You can make this cheerful Rudolf from 1 paper plate! Its antlers can move because they're fastened with split pins. Nice to hang against the wall or make a pendulum out of it. Do you have any Christmas ball hooks left? Then you can also hang Christmas balls in his antlers, if you like it. This reindeer even has two real bells hanging on his collar. But that could be paper bells too, you know!

The example made below is just an inspiration, because your Rudolf may lookdifferent. Every human being is different and special, and that also applies to animals!

You can save the example of the sign and then print it out. If you print it out to the size of your plate, you can cut out the parts and then cover them on your plate. You can also checkthe pattern a little on your plate. Then first start drawing the head and draw with pencil. If the parts get bigger or smaller then that's really no problem. That's what makes your reindeer unique!

To hang him up, poke a hole in the top of his head (ahh.. pathetic!) so that he can hang on a nail or screw. at a pendulum it is convenient to hang it on his antlers.

You want to make a mini reindeer? There are also small pastry plates made of paper. Don't you have any signs? Then take solid paper (e.g. 220 grams) or thin cardboard, you can of course!
