Metal Jingle Bell & Wooden Reindeer Ornament Craft Kit
Adorable Little Ornaments
I bought these for a corporate Christmas party craft for one of the kids craft stations with wonderful results. I wanted to have a display of the finished product on the table, so I used an extra kit and took pics with my digital camera for each stage of construction. I then printed these as colorful instructions for the kids as some could not read yet. I printed 6 instruction sheets for the table. I provided the recommended glue dots which work amazingly well. (Tip: if you buy the large glue dots you will need scissors to reduce the size. I bought 48 kits so I would recommend 1 pkg of large & 1 pkg of small glue dots for this amount! You will have some left over.) This was a clean craft with nothing but the original plastic bag, backing paper from the glue dots and a few stray dots to clean up afterwards. Since there were extras and they come individually packaged, the parent snatched them up quickly to take home after the party. It was a great success and everyone wanted to know where to buy them!

not a good product
Had to order this item twice--not enough parts to finish.

Really cute; makes a great little gift or party favor. I strongly question letting a five year old do these. You really need a glue gun to make it stick well, and little ones just shouldn't be using a hot glue gun. Nice for older kids or adults, though. I had one kit that came with two bodies and no head, so I only ended up with 11.

Look nice when done!
These are fine for older children and adults to make. It would be a little hard for a younger child to do. They do look nice when you're finished and not cheap looking.

A bit tricky but cute
These were a bit tricky for my kids to make, I ended up making them all myself. Needed to use a hot glue gun as the bells are small and wood sticking to metal doesn't work so well with glue dots. All in all, they were adorable once I got them made but they do break easily so they need to be stored carefully. Not a kid craft, my 11 year old struggled with patience on this one.

cute but timely
i did this craft with my child who is two months shy of 5 while it was easy to put together is states that the glue dots can work or hot glue gun so i bought the glue dots to avaoid burns, we did what the instructions said and let everything sit my daughter lost intrest after 2/12 so i had to put 10 together myself. and the glue dots dont hold the heads pop off the bodys often so use hot glue for a better hold

Better than Expected!
When I was planning our Homeschool Craft Day, I was surprised that all my children requested this ornament. I thought it looked tacky and reluctantly ordered it. The picture DOES NOT do it justice! This was easy to put together for my family, ages 10 - 51. And everyone's ornament looked GREAT!
