Rudolf Paper Cup Craft

Day 2


What you will need:

  • 1 plastic, paper or foam drinking cup
  • Brown & Pink acrylic paint
  • 2 3″ square pieces of tan felt
  • 2 medium google eyes
  • 1 medium red pom pom
  • 2 black chenille stems
  • Strip of felt to fit the inside rim of the cup
  • White craft glue
  • Black marker
  • Scissors

How to make it:

  1. Paint cup with brown paint and set aside to dry
  2. When paint is dry, stand cup upright and glue to google eyes on front of the cup, about half way down.
  3. Glue red pom pom on for the nose, just above the bottom of the cup, centered under the eyes.
  4. Use scissors to carefully poke a slit in both sides of the cup where you want the ears to go.
  5. Roll 1 of the felt squares up like a cone; insert the pointed end into one of the slits on the cup.  Repeat on other side.  Secure felt to the cup with glue.
  6. Bend each Chenille stem in half.  Form chenille ends into antlers by creating a couple of bends on each one.
  7. Glue strip on tan felt inside the rim of the cup, then immediately insert the antlers under the strip on each side.  Hold in place for a few minutes.
  8. Dot pink paint on for cheeks using your finger.
  9. Use a black marker to draw on eyebrows.


  • To give the cup some weight, glue a washer to the bottom of the cup.
  • Fill with wrapped candies and give as a gift.
  • Substitutions- red glitter can be used instead of a red pom pom, and brown felt can be used instead of brown chenille.

Too cute!  Enjoy!
