One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is pull out all the vintage Christmas decorations I was handed down from my great-grandmother. From crocheted angels to ceramic trees, there’s just something so special about holding an item that a loved one worked on with their own hands so many years ago. Of course, I have a super special place in my heart for those tiny pipe cleaner figurines that were super popular to make in the 50’s. I decided to try my own version of these pipe cleaner ornaments and use them as gift tags with materials found at Darice!

Step 1. Take one of the chenille bump stems and cut as seen in the picture below.
Step 7. Use a pale pink chenille stem to add additional detail to the hood and gloves. Fold one of the arms around a small ornament and glue to hold. Use a fine point permanent pen to add face detail.
Step 1. Cut a tan chenille bump stem in half.
Step 3. Cut a small piece of white felt in the shape of antlers. Take a tan chenille stem and begin wrapping around the mid-section. Continue to add a neck section and then wrap around the felt antlers. Move downward to create the snout and then work your way back to secure everything.
