We made a mini pom pom for our reindeer’s nose!
Using a regular fork, lay a small piece of wool between the middle tines – this is tie your pom pom together with later. Now wrap some wool around the fork. You don’t need much! Using the piece of wool around your wrapped wool really tightly and slip it off the fork.
Now you just need to snip the looped ends and give your pom pom a good haircut. Snip snip all around your pom pom till the wool is short and even and you have a perfect nose for your reindeer.
He looks so cute with his red pom pom nose!
We tried a few different things…
We tried a wooden counter, a large sequin, a curled up pipe cleaner, a button and a few other funny things as our reindeer’s nose!
Or you could simply colour him in!
