How to MakeÂ Rudolph Puzzle Piece Ornaments
For each face of the reindeer, I found 2 pieces that fit together vertically. You do not have to do this, I just thought it made the faces look a little better.
Paint all the puzzle pieces brown, and sprinkle glitter on 4 of them and let them all dry.
For the first Rudolph, put a dot of glue on the bottom half of a plain brown piece, and press one of the connected 2 pieces on top of that for the face.
Then take 2 glitter pieces and glue one above the face angled to the left and the other angled to the right to resemble antlers.
Repeat step 3 for the other Rudolph.
Cut 2 pieces of twine, knot each one into a loop, and glue to the back of each reindeer.
On the front of each reindeer, glue on a pair of googly eyes and a red pom-pom at the bottom edge of the face for his red nose.
