DIY - Reindeer Cardboard Head




I love my little Reindeer!
I was browsing for some cheap & quick  Christmas Crafts 
& found it HERE at Good House Keeping.

Download the free TEMPLATE.

1. Trace & Cut around the head twice, score at nose line.

2. Trace & Cut around all 7 pieces of the Antlers.
 3. Mark & cut the grooves on the head & main antlers.
(Make sure you start with a small cut first, adjust later)
4.  Use a black sharpie to draw circle for eye.
5.  Glue red construction paper to either side of the nose. 
6.  Add antler prongs in grooves.
 7. Place heads together so they are matching, making sure scored lines are on the inside.

8. Glue nose section together, matching exactly, so the two heads are connected at the nose. (Hot glue works best) 

9.Open heads to form a slight V, and insert deer antlers in top grooves.

10.Place long rectangular brace in back. 

11.Place reindeer head in wreath of your choice.
ALL DONE
The wreath cost me $2.99 from Spotlight 
& the rest was free!!
Try it, it looks great.
