You can make lots of great Christmas crafts from paper plates – they’re ideal for making trees and, as you’ll see in this tutorial, for making cute reindeer.

Add a red nose to turn Rudolph into a reindeer, or keep the nose brown to create a normal-looking reindeer. We used paper to make the reindeer noses but the pom poms look pretty cool too.
