Pool Noodle Stick Horse Rudolph

We made these super fun pool noodle stick horses and unicorns this summer for my daughters birthday HERE so we thought that it might be fun to make some Pool Noodle Stick Horse Rudolphs for Christmas, and they turned out so cute. We had a blast making these and the kids have been playing with them all week. They even look cute just sitting around as a Christmas decoration. If you are planning a Christmas party these would also make super fun party favors for the kids to take home. 


  1. pool noodle (found mine at a local dollar store)
  2. Long brown Socks (found mine HERE)
  3. Brown craft foam
  4. Brown Craft felt
  5. Brown yard
  6. Large wiggle eyes 
  7. Ribbon 
  8. Small bells
  9. Scissors
  10. Glue
  11. Large red pom pom or bell


  1. Lay out your sock next to your pool noodle and measure about how far down until to heal piece
  2. Cut a slit in the noodle part of the way through at the heal (be careful not to cut all the way through)(this makes it so the noodle will bend at the cut)
  3. Roll your sock onto your pool noodle
  4. Bend your pool noodle at the heal piece/ slit in the noodle
  5. Glue a piece of ribbon around the noodle – about 2-3″ up from the small section of noodle
  6. Glue another piece of ribbon at one side of the wrapped piece of ribbon and loop the ribbon around to the other side making reigns for your Rudolph and glue in place
  7. Glue bells all the way down the sides
  8. Glue on 2 each large wiggle eyes to the front of your Rudolph
  9. Take your yarn and cut several pieces (appx 12″ long) and tie them together about 3″ down
  10. Glue your bundle of ribbons to the top of your Rudolph head 
  11. Glue a large red pom pom to the nose
  12. Cut out of Craft foam 2 large antlers and glue just under the bend of your head on each side
  13. Cut out of felt 2 small ears and glue on just behind your antlers
