These DIY Mini Plant Pot Reindeer Ornaments are such a cute DIY Christmas Craft and perfect for decorating your tree this festive season. Yes, they are Mini plant pot Rudolfs!
This craft came from the fact that I made a mistake and ordered tiny plant pots and didn’t want to waste them – and they are really tiny at less than 2 inches high! But they do make such adorable Reindeer Ornaments.
These are super cute and don’t need many materials. I love how they turned out and they look fabulous on the tree. You could also make some bigger Reindeer decorations, which would look good as garden decorations.

How to Make DIY Mini Plant Pot Reindeer Ornaments
I like using Glue dots to stick the eyes and pompom on. As these are so tiny it is less fiddly than using hot glue and you are less likely to burn your fingers.
Feed through the cold cord and lie a large knot in it. So that the cord doesn’t come through the hole in the top of the pot.
Next, shape a pipe cleaner into antlers. Before pushing the end into the hole in the top of the pot.
Then all you have to do is hand them on your tree.
I love how you can give them their own character by changing the size and style of eyes.
