Step 1: 

First, make sure that you're using a wrapped candy cane. It won't do to glue things directly to the candy if you want to eat it later! We'll also be working with glue dots instead of hot glue because we don't want the wrapper to melt to the candy! To begin, apply a glue dot underneath the bend of the candy cane.

Step 2: 

Glue the extra-fuzzy pipe cleaner to the glue dot and bend its sides up to make your reindeer ears.

Step 3: 

Snip the fuzzy pipe cleaner with scissors to make two, cute, short little ears.

Step 4: 

In the exact same place as the first pipe cleaner, add the second, normal pipe cleaner. Push it firmly on the glue dot to make sure that both pipe cleaners are glued in place.

Step 5: 

Bend each side of the straight pipe cleaner in a zig-zag pattern to add shape to your antlers.

Step 6: 

Now it's time to make the reindeer face! Place two glue dots for eyes on either side of the candy cane bend and stick on two googly eyes! Next, place one glue dot at the bottom of the the candy cane bend and place a little red pom-pom nose.

Step 7: 

Your Candy Cane Rudolph is complete! Give it as a gift, hang it from the tree, or use it to accessorize a present!
