Reindeer cannot get any sweeter than this craft, can they? I adore how you put the pipe cleaners on the candy canes and use that to make an animal out of a cane. It is so much fun for kids and older family members to make. Great post! We will definitely be making these this year.

What a really cute and fun idea to do with the kids. Easy for the big and little kids to be able to do and get involved with. They would be cool hanging off of the Christmas tree as well and the kids can enjoy what they have just made and maybe eat a sneaky one or two)

What a really neat idea. This made me laugh when I saw it so I know my family and friends will love it too. The googly eyes will really make them. I have a huge candy cane someone gave me last year that is still in its box. I think he would make a great lead reindeer. Thank you once again for sharing these wonderful ideas

Most people I know hang these candy canes on the tree and this is so cute to make it look great. So simple and fun to make for the whole family. I love these candy cane reindeers. Never would have thought of this. You can even use the larger candy canes or make in different sizes. Cannot wait to do these. Your family and friends will think this is brillant.
