Materials List

  • Printed copy of the provided pattern sheet
  • 8.7" x 5.7" brown paper rope bag
  • Dark brown felt
  • Caramel-colored felt
  • Pair of 20mm googly eyes
  • Two pieces of red pipe cleaner, each with a length of 4.1"
  • Two pieces of red pipe cleaner, each with a length of 3.1"
  • One 25mm red glitter pom-pom
  • 9" of red satin ribbon that is 0.3" wide
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • Thin black marker to trace the pattern parts onto the felt
  • Standard scissors


  1. Depending on the child's age, this step might require help from an adult.
    Trace the pattern parts onto the felt. Trace the head and one set of ears onto the brown felt, and the snout and one set of ears onto the caramel felt. Cut all the parts out.

  2. Make the antlers:
    Twist each shorter piece of red pipe cleaner around a longer piece. Measure where the head will be added and glue the bottom parts of the antlers to the one side of the bag. Do not glue down the top part of the antlers, so that when Rudolph has been completed, the top of the antlers can be slightly bent.

  3. Glue the head to the bag.

  4. Add the snout and eyes.

  5. Glue each caramel ear onto a brown ear. Glue the bottom points of each ear to the bag with the caramel side of the ear facing forward.

  6. Glue the pom-pom nose in place.

  7. Make a bow with the ribbon and glue it below Rudolph's face to finish it off.
