This fall, our Film Club began work on a movie to show at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Holiday Open House.

This is Cam’s first ever holiday season here at the Library. He decided to celebrate with these super-fun activity sheets.
This is a fun and easy craft. There is very little mess as this project needs no paint, and very little glue!
To create a one-of-a-kind Rudolph ornament, you will need the following materials:
- Clear glass or plastic ball ornament
- Shredded brown paper
- Red pom
- Wiggle eyes
- Brown pipe cleaner
- Yarn or string
- Dow rod for stuffing (optional)
Fill ornament with shredded brown paper, or try another color for a personalized effect.
Glue wiggle eyes and pom to the ornament. Exercise caution in this step as ornaments tend to break easily.
When working with younger crafters, make sure they don’t press down too hard on the eyes or nose.
Make antlers out of pipe cleaner. Cut a 12-inch pipe cleaner into one 6 inch piece and two 3 inch pieces.
Use the 6-inch piece as the “base” of the antlers and use the shorter segments to make the horns.
Make a hanger by tying a loop of yarn or string to the top of the ornament.
