Deer on the wall

Small has been working on a little Christmas craft the last few days, with a little help here and there.  The end result is now proudly displayed on the wall, and we have our very own mounted, but not stuffed, deer on the wall.

Meet Rudolph!

Made extremely frugally, with some recycled cardboard, and other bits and bobs we already had, no money was spent to create him.  Bonus :)

Edited to add:  There's a link in the comments to the template we used for the reindeer head.  We 'mounted' the head on a paper plate that had two slits cut into it.  You'll see where these need to be if you download the template.  Small painted the centre of the plate brown, then stuck on the bits of tissue paper.  We didn't have any 'traditional' Christmas colours, but of course Mummy had some purple!

Until next time. x


  1. That is brilliant, well done. Might have to have a go at one of these

    1. Thanks! We found the template here http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/cm/goodhousekeeping/data/ghk-1211-reindeer-template.pdf

  2. A dear deer,but not a dear deer! What a funny language we have!

    1. It took me a moment to work that one out! A strange language indeed!!
