How to make a Reindeer Desk Tidy or Pencil Pot
If you have made one of our many Tin Can Pencil Pots before, you will know what a super quick and easy 5 Minute Craft this is!! I have, as per usual, a quick Rudolph Desk Tidy Video How To for you, but also added written instructions for you below! Enjoy!
How to make a Reindeer Desk Tidy or Pencil Pot – STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Begin by measuring out your brown paper for your Rudolph’s body.
I find wrappingt the paper around the tin can and creasing it a little, gives you the perfect cutting guide lines. You can of course also get a ruler out!!!
Cut 2mm to inside of your crease. Check against your tin can that you have the correctly sized rectangle.
Time to make your reindeer’s facial features
For your reindeer pencil pot you will need two antlers, one big red nose and two eyes.
The antlers can be in a lighter or dark brown or even in black – see what you have available at home.
For the eyes, you can use googly eyes, sticker eyes or draw two big eyes on white paper and cut out.
Stick all the facial features into the middle of your brown rectangle.
Finally assembly of your Reindeer Desk Tidy
Add a little tape to the width of the brown paper and tape to the tin.
Cut a second piece of tape.
Wrap the brown paper as neatly as you can around the tin can and tape in place.
Your TIN CAN Reindeer Desk Tidy DIY is FINISHED!!!
