We were recently sent a bundle of Rudolph goodies from The Little Crafty Bugs Company to use to decorate objects ready for Christmas, yes I said it it! December is just around the corner and it’s always nice to be ahead when it comes to crafts, decorations and gift wrapping, which is where these cute Rudolph Face Kits come in!
We love a good old crafting session, but we obviously had to use our imagination when it came down to how we’d use each kit. The kits contain antlers, red pom pom noses, wobbly eyes and in the delux kit there are jingly bells to add that extra touch. They are available in different sizes; mini, small, medium, large, extra large and giant with small and large both offering a luxury version including bells and tinsel pom poms.
We were sent a small set, a medium set and a large luxury set to try out. The kits do not come with any adhesive, so we gathered tape, double sided tape and glue just in case. We had several ideas, for each of the size packs, and our first craft included colour mixing, painting and recycling!
Toilet Tube Rudolph
I love it when we haven’t got a particular colour of paint because it means we have to work our grey matter and figure out how to make it from prime colours. George and Molly loved mixing red, blue and yellow together to create brown…
We then painted our toilet tubes and left them to dry. Once they were dry it was time to add a face! We used the medium kit for this craft as well as double sided sticky tape. They were really easy to apply and they’re super effective.
I really adore these little dudes! I think it would be great ot add a little ribbon to them and give them out as gifts at Christmas time.
Pine Cone Rudolph
Pine cones just feel so festive so it was easy to imagine them with cute little Rudolph faces! We used the small kit for these and little double sided sticky dots to attach them. It was a little fiddly, but well worth it! Again, these could have a ribbon attached so they could be hung on the tree…
Whilst crafting away I found a decent sized brown button and suggested Molly make a Rudolph with it. She used the double sided circles and added the eyes, nose and antlers to the button. I think it looks so cute!
Another simple make we attempted was a cute yet effective bookmark. We used the small kit and Molly added a mouth to hers. They’re really cute and useful! I think these would be a fab gift.
Gift Wrap Rudolph
It’s so nice to make a big effort with gift wrap during Christmas, from ribbons to bows to Rudolph faces! We used double sided tape to attach Rudolph’s face to a glitsy gold box and it looks oh-so-good! I think this would make any gift look that extra bit special.
We loved using our Rudolph Face Kits, they were very easy to use and we ended up creating lots of gorgeous Christmas themed bits and bobs along the way. The kits cost between 65p and £1.25 and you can order them in packs of one or six. They are so inexpensive yet they offer such joy, imaginative play and fun. I can’t wait to come up with some more ideas with George and Molly and Rudolph!
What would you decorate with one of these fab kits?
