Step 5: Why not make a whole host of little deer?

These little Rudolphs are so quick and easy to make that you could make a whole heap of them.

You could glue on ribbon or twine to hang them from the Christmas tree. Or you could hang them in a line on a piece of ribbon as pretty bunting.

They would also make lovely gifts for your child to give to friends and family.
