When I first saw this paper maché reindeer at Michael’s I picked it up not having any idea what I was going to do with it other than make it the centerpiece of our holiday decorations. Add in a little cabana stripe ribbon from Nashville Wraps, vintage gold paint, red glitter, and some pom pom trim and I was in business!
I thought good ol’ Rudy could use a little extra glitter so I made a quick rosette out of ruby red glitter paper and attached a piece of wood bunting painted in the matching gold and adorned with a vinyl decal I made with my Silhouette CAMEO.
And what dapper man, or deer, doesn’t look better with a bowtie. I made this one out of wired glitter ribbon, a twist tie, and some hot glue.
Rudolph would just be any reindeer walking down the street if it weren’t for his red nose. Using a q-tip I applied Mod Podge in a deer nose shape and covered it with bright red glitter. A great tip with glitter is to use a dry paint or makeup brush to remove excess glitter from areas around the glittered spot.
