This simple drawing from my sketchbook inspired these little cardboard reindeer. I used cardboard from my recycle bin, twigs from my yard, strips of an old curtain panel, and some different glitters. They would make sweet tags for gifts or ornaments for the tree. I clipped them onto a cord with clothespins to make a garland across my window.
Champagne colored glass glitter…
Plain cardboard sprinkled with clear crystal glitter. Looks like a cookie!
My favorite holiday glitter: Martha Stewart’s “Gold Tinsel”.
I had fun with this last one. I cut two deer patterns out of paper bag, sewed them together and stuffed it. I added some brush bristles for eyelashes, an ear, and a tiny red berry for a nose.
Happy Holiday Season!
Here’s the little reindeer if you’d like to print it out and use it as a pattern, or just for a coloring page…
