I have a hard time believing that it is already time to share my very first Christmas project! Wowza! Where did time go?
It’s time for another great FloraCraft project today, guys! Remember couple months ago we had to come up with our own style of craft following tutorials from an ebook that FloraCraft came out with. Well, this time we were provided with fantastic Holiday ebook (you will get to see it, too) and had to create a project per our taste.
I am obsessed with deer…, I totally am, and I especially enjoy drawing them. If you are new here. be sure to sign up for my newsletters to get a beautiful watercolor deer head in your mailbox. 🙂
So here is the Holiday Book that Flora Craft provided us with.
There are so many awesome projects in this little eBook, and I love them all, wich made it pretty hard to pick my favorite. After much deliberation, I decided to make a fun reindeer head to use as an ornament for my mantel. Of course, you can use it in other places too, for example, as a front door ornament for the Holidays.
Things you will need for the project:
-FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Block – 1” x 12” x 18”
-FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Cutter
-red ball ornament for the nose
Draw a head shape, which you can grab below and print for yourself. Print two and tape it together.
First I stenciled the head on the foam sheet and cut it around with my FloraCraft® cutting tool.
As a second step, I painted the head with brown acrylic paint.
I made small eyes from plaid fabric, and I glued it on the head shape as well as a red nose.
Finally, I pushed some branches into the foam on the top of the head shape for antlers, and I also did that for the reindeer’s neck and I wrapped it around with plaid fabric.
I love to create things from my backyard finds, I really do.
This guy will be a nice little Christmas ornament in my home. I hung it above my mantel, and he looks pretty darn good.
In addition, here is a quick video for you to see this reindeer head ornament coming live in action.
Have a fantastic week!
