Cork Reindeer Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
I purchased only one pack for a group of 4th graders to make. They used a hot glue gun, as normal glue would not hold up. The tooth pick was difficult to insert, so we left it out and glued the head directly onto the body. They looked even cutier this way. They got creative and glued legs on in a sitting position and glued the head on as if the reinder was looking over its shoulder. They alterned the atlers to make a baby reindeer or ommitted it for a female deer. We sold them to help raise money for a project we are doing. They were a huge success! I only wish I would have purchased 3-4 kits, as they sold out quickly and were very popular amoung both kids and adults!!!

This will be our Lady's Night Out Project and I can't wait until the girls see how cute they are. I made one to see how difficult it might be and the only concern I have is the toothpick. I had to twist and gently but firmly push it in so it was the right height and secure. It was easy for me but I would say that most 5 year old children would have trouble and would definitely need an adult to assist them with that part of the assembly or pre-drill holes. For us ladies, I am extremely happy with them

These little critters are awesome! So fun & easy to make. I bought this thinking it would give me directions on how to make reindeer from my own corks & instead it was the complete kit. I'm using them as decorations on my packages. A co-worker saw them and wants to use them for party favors. So many reindeers, so many uses!

Very cute reindeer
I think these little guys are so cute! I actually bought one at a craft fair....then my dog chewed it up!! So when I saw that they came from Oriental Trading I just had to buy the whole herd!!
Cute, easy to make, and make an adorable centerpiece with trees, snow, etc.

We have a big family get together on Christmas Eve. This year I wanted to do something different to add to the entertainment. I set up a craft table with these Reindeer Ornament Kits and glue guns (they worked best)
These were a hit! They were perfect for the kids (with supervision of course) and the adults. Plus, at the end of the night everyone went home with a new ornament for their tree.

Cute, but difficult assembly
These reindeer ornaments turned out adorable, but the neck was extremely difficult to push in to the cork head and body. Perhaps if the ends were pointy instead of blunt. Almost wished I had a drill with a small bit! Then gluing them in would have been easy.

Fun project with more possibilities
I bought this for a friend who does not like to order on the internet. She made wonderful ornaments from the kit and added clever embellishments.

I made these for a craft fair sale, and they sold out within 2 hours!
These are quick and easy to make, however, I had trouble with their necks! I tried gluing them, but they still came off, so I took them off! I put bows on there instead, and they went like hotcakes! These are a great item for a Christmas Bazaar or Holiday Craft Fair - everyone loved them!
I ordered two dozen this time!

Great Christmas craft!
I bought these for my 7 year old son to make for Christmas presents and they were great! He enjoyed putting them together and needed little help from my husband and I. He only needed help with knotting the ribbon and inserting the toothpick head holder (we used a small screwdriver to make the hole so that it wouldn't break the cork). The glue dots that the product description recommended were perfect to use and easy for my son to use. They were adorable and my son had fun making them!

Cute and worth the money
Very cute and easy to make. Did use the suggestions of other reviewers about using a glue gun and pre-made the hole for the toothpick.
