My favorite is the reindeer. Try making an entire herd for under the tree, and wrap one Santa package who is leading the heard.

Cut ears out of brown paper cut a small slit and overlap at the bottom. Cut antlers of darker brown construction paper and apply both to the package  with double stick tape. Use white construction paper. Prepare all of the components ahead of time and the decorating will be so easy and fun for everyone.  Glue on the face parts and add eyes and mouth with a black marker. These are adorable!

A really fun way to decorate is by creating different faces or expressions and name them. Wrap all the presents for each child  in brown paper and decorate them with one character. Then on Christmas morning it is really fun for them to locate their character and stash of gifts. Don’t stop here. Make DIY wrapping paper year round that adds a special touch to any gift you give. Keep a roll of brown paper or brown gift bags in the house and you will be able to create great gift wrap all year long.  The savings are really incredible.
