Yarn Wrapped Crazy Rudolph Can

Sometimes crafts turn out exactly the way that I envision. Like this Turkey Tin. Or this Snowman Can. But today’s Rudolph Can took a turn for the, well, crazy. Somewhere between the googly eyes and the antlers, Rudolph looks like a wild-eyed version of Santa’s helper. Guess what? My daughter thinks he’s hilarious, and she insisted on keeping it and using it for decor. That’s when I was reminded that kids actually LIKE things that aren’t perfect and look a little on the crazy side. So we kept our yarn wrapped Crazy Rudolph Can, and I thought I might as well share how we made it in case you’re looking for a piece of nutty Christmas decor, too!

Begin by wrapping the yarn around the can and securing it with the hot glue. I only had to use the hot glue gun at the beginning and the end.

Hot glue a red pom in the center of the can. Hot glue the eyes on the can, as well.

Bend the fuzzy sticks in antler shapes (the best that you can!) and hot glue them on the inside rim of the can.
