How To Make Candy Can Reindeer

You can use any glue, but I found the Fabric-Tac instantly held the felt together without waiting for much dry time.

First, cut the felt to cover all of the candy labels.

Wrap the brown felt around the two candy canes. Make sure the seam is in the back.

Then run a line of glue down one side and fold the other side of the felt over the top.
