  • Mulling Spices
  • Funnel optional
  • Brown pipe cleaners
  • Large plastic ornaments
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Red pom poms
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue or hot glue


  1. First wash and clean all the ornaments before filling. I like to do this the day before, since they need to be completely dry before placing anything in them. Otherwise, the mulling spices will be very difficult to get out.
  2. Next start gathering all your supplies. Here is a quick and easy mulling spices recipe I like to use or you can find mulling spices at the store to purchase.
  3. Once you have all your supplies, then you can start to assemble these cute little reindeer ornaments.
  4. First place the funnel into the ornament. I found it so much easier using a funnel then just trying to fit all mulling spices in the small hole. I also found ornaments with very larger opening in the top, so it was easy to fill.
  5. Once the ornament is filled full of spices, place the cap back on the ornament. When the ornament is full, this will not actually hold the ornament. But it is a good place for the tag.
  6. Next make the reindeer antlers using the brown pipe cleaner. Take a pipe cleaner and cut several pieces about 2 inches in length. These will form the antlers. Next take one full length pipe cleaner and one 2 inch piece. Fold the 2 inch piece in half and wrap around the tip of the full length pipe cleaner to create an antler. Then wrap the antlers around the top of the ornament.
  7. Next glue on the reindeer nose. I chose a red pom pom for a Rudolph reindeer, but you can have black too.
  8. After the nose is glued on draw a reindeer face or glue on some googly eyes and draw in the mouth with a sharpie.
