These little reindeer are a mix of modern and rustic and all you need are a few twigs from your yard! The best thing is you can make them any size! MORE PHOTOS & DETAILS ON OUR SITE POST HERE

NOTES ON GLUE: For the tiny reindeer, I used hot glue in the essence of time. This is actually not a good idea if your branches have bark on them as mine did because the sticks will pull the bark off easily. Either use sticks without bark or use larger branches and drill holes to place your sticks into for a firm hold. For larger reindeer I’d suggest a drill and wood glue. ⚫Small Branches ⚫Carpentry Hand Saw OR Table Saw ⚫Hot Glue Gun (Read notes as this does not hold well) ⚫Wood glue for larger reindeer ⚫Drill (for long term holding) ⚫White paint ⚫Gold paint ⚫ Brown Twine ⚫Bells
We have a reference sheet you can download for the small size reindeer.
I cut up a bunch of pieces to choose from.
Rub any rough edges on sandpaper.
Glue your parts on, remembering that if your wood has bark this will not hold long term.
I drilled a hole for the antlers.
Paint the antlers gold and the reindeer white. Paint the tips of its feet gold and the tip of its tail gold.
Grab some twine and bells.
Tie the twine around the reindeer's neck and glue on a bell!
