Pot Reindeer Craft Supplies: •terra cotta clay pot or plastic plant pot •Brown medium pompom and a small red pompom •red pom pom or small wad of red tissue paper •Goggle eyes •craft fun foam •Gold pipe cleaner •Red thin ribbon •Silk holly leaves or use what you have •Printed ear pattern (at the bottom of the page) Pot Reindeer Project Instructions: Just five easy steps! 1. Paint the pot brown if you have to -- I was lucky and bought these at the dollar store, 10 for a dollar. 2. Glue on the goggle eyes and glue on the medium brown pompom and glue the small red pompom on top. 3. Print and trace the ear pattern (shown at right), or draw your own ear pattern onto fun foam and cut out. Starting in the center of the pot, glue the ears on to the pot. 4. Bend the gold pipe cleaner in two loops and glue it in place, in front of the ears. 5. Add the holly leaves or other Christmas foliage, then tie a bow from thin red or green ribbon, and glue the box in front of the leaves.

Christmas ornaments Old christmas cards, glitter and glue... You take a small drinking glass and draw circles on the cards and then cut them out. I think you needed 6 folds on each circle (you'll have to experiment with this one, been too many years since I've done it). Glue the folded edges together. It ends up making a ball. Then you glue glitter on to the ends. Sorry I couldn't give a better description but it's been over 30 years...

I have found many easy craft ideas. One of the things I am learning how to do is making Bath Salts. It takes about 10 minutes per batch. I am also learning how to make salt dough ornamnets. These do not take a lot of time to paint, but the cooking time can take a while. I will send you both recipes. Also, I make felt ornamnets which does not take too long to make. You just buy the felt and cut out shapes (I use my cookie cutters) and then either glue both sides together or sew if I have a needle and thread. These take 10 minutes depending on how much extra things you put on each ornament.
