How to Make our Standy Uppy Rudolph Cracker Kits

Purchased one of our popular and exclusive Rudolph cracker making kits? Need some help with assembly? Here's some hints and tips to help you out.

There are a variety of kits using the Rudolph design. Some have foam antlers and some have pipe cleaner antlers. Some also have wobbly eyes, pom pom noses and bells. They are designed to stand up but please note, putting heavy items inside will mean they may not stand up.

Below is a short step-by-step video, showing you how to make our cracker kits with wraps. This will take you to the stage of adding any extra eyes, noses, antlers or bells you may have.

Please remember that our Standy Uppy crackers only have a handle wrap on one end, as the other end is where the antlers go!

Once you've reached this point, follow the instructiosn below depending on the kit you have...

Once you've done that...

If your kit has foam antlers:

Push the foam antlers out of their foam surround. Use a small piece of double sided tape on the bottom of each antler to stick them to the cracker.

Remember that there is a left and a right antler, so it's best to do this one cracker at a time, so you don't end up with wonky antlers!

If your kit has pipe cleaner antlers: 

You have two pipe cleaners per cracker. Tie one pipe cleaner around the neck of the cracker so that you end up with two sticks of equal length on either side. This will make the 'stem' of the antler. Cut the other pipe cleaner into 4 equal parts and wind two pieces around each 'stem' to make the antler 'branches'.

If your kit has wobbly eyes:

Use double sided tape to stick the eyes to the appropriate place on the reindeer face wrap.

For the eyes, it's easier to stick the tape (or foam pads in this case) onto the back of the eyes and then stick them on.

If your kit has pom pom noses:

Use double sided tape to stick the noses to the appropriate place on the reindeer face wrap.

For the pom pom nose, add some tape to the reindeer face and push the pom pom onto this.

If your kit has jingle bells:

Thread a jingle bell onto a length of ribbon (making sure the ribbon is equal lengths on either side of the bell). Tie a know above the bell.

Approximately 5cm above this knot, make another knot and then tie the two loose ends around the neck of the cracker to attach it. You can then cut off any excess ribbon if required.
