Reindeer Family

I am up to my elbows in wrapping paper.  I went out of the house with several pieces of tape stuck to my clothing.  I told Amanda in the toy section at Walmart that she was my hero for finding a toy I really needed wanted to get my daughter.  My Google Reader has spiraled out of control.  I don’t remember the last time my counter wasn’t covered in some sort of project.  I have gone through more hot glue gun sticks than I can count.  I’ve never sewed so much in my life.  I can’t believe Christmas has snuck on us so quickly.  I remember laughing at bloggers for posting/making Christmas stuff in October.  Lesson learned.  I promise I have some fun stuff to post, at least I think it’s fun, I hope you will too!  Just give me a sec ok? 


But here’s a quickie.  

Reindeer Family


I’ve seen these lots of different places. 

Made using paint HERE at Oopsey Daisy.

Using paper HERE at Homemaking Fun

Nothing original.  But we had lots of fun making our Reindeer Family together as a family.  Even the Hubby helped.  (Yes, my feet and hands really are that small, freakishly small!)


{Materials Used}

Cardstock (Light brown for antelers, dark brown for head, white and black for eyes, red for noses)

Ribbon (hanging and girl bows)

Raffia (for hair)

Glitter (for noses)

Wire (hard to see in the picture, but Daddy is wearing glasses)

Markers, scissors, glue


{To Make}

Trace foot for head.

Trace hands for antelers.

Cut out eyes, noses, antlers, heads, glue together. 

Add embellishments, bows for girls, glasses, hair.  I busted out the hot glue gun for the raffia, and ribbon.  178_0706
