Super Simple Recycled Reindeer Ornament

Let’s all be real for a moment…if you have small kids in the house (or even pets!), there’s a good chance that your Christmas ornaments are either lost or broken. And since you really only need them once a year, does it really make sense to go out and spend a bunch of money buying new ones? I think not. So instead, we’ve decided that making our own ornaments is not only super fun, but it’s super simple as well. 

As you can see from the ornament below, you can literally create something adorable with items that you probably weren’t going to use for anything else!
