It’s the last week of school before Christmas and New Year Holidays. And we made some last minute but cute DIY Rudolph wrapped gifts for my kid’s teachers. These are very easy to make and the kids will love to lend a hand in decorating a sweet gift for their wonderful teachers.
I simply wrapped the candy boxes with brown paper. And then had all the cutouts ready for my little one to glue and feel good.
He was so excited to give the cute DIY Rudolph gifts to his teacher.
DIY Rudolph Gifts
We have used Ferrero Rocher chocolate box to make the Rudolph. But really you can wrap any gift container, candy bar, can of food or even jar of nuts… and then turn it into a cute little Rudolph.
You can use branches to make the antlers too. Just like I did over here. But these kid’s hand paper cutout antlers look a little more special and creative.
To make your own DIY Rudolph wrapped gifts,
You will need:
1. Brown paper sheet
2. Red Pom pom for nose
3. Cardstock or paper
4. Yarn or twine
5. Jingle bells
6. Googly eyes
Once the gift is wrapped with brown paper. Use a hand trace template of your kid to cutout Reindeer antlers. Also cutout oval eye shapes (I think it would have looked better with bigger eyes and nose) and collar. And lastly string jingle bells through the twine.
Now let your kid glue them in place with necessary guidance. For the jingle bells I used tape to keep it in one place. It also sits intact if you use hot glue. I used hot glue to stick the jingle bells in place on this wreath. The idea of not hot gluing the garland on the gift wrap is to provide the teachers with a handmade gift along with chocolate. When they open the gift wrap, they can keep the jingle bells garland and hang it on the Christmas tree as an ornament or use as keychain, door bell or even decoration.
And that’s about it all.
Rudolph Wrapped Candy Gift
Each of these DIY Rudolph gifts have a personal message on the back. All words written by my son Abbas. It adds that special love to it!
I then asked Abbas what he would like to write for Holiday wishes and he was not sure what I meant!
So, I rephrased my question and asked him what do you like about your teacher? I wrote it on a paper and glued it on the back.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
