This year I kept playing with different ideas for Advent Calendars until it was almost too late to make them. Since they were going to hold little Lego characters, I finally settled on twenty-four reindeers. It was a huge rush but I did get them done in time.
The baby reindeer measured 2"x2" while the largest one was 6"x4" sized. Initially they were going to have antlers made from pipe-cleaners. However I spied some plastic snowflakes on sale at S$1.50 for a pack of three. Cut into smaller pieces with some tinsel wrapped around them, they worked wonderfully glued to the ears of the reindeers.
The template I used was from an craftbook by Suzie Millions. Her reindeers were created from recycled beer cans. But I found 150gsm papers worked just as well for holding little treats.
Linking up to these parties.
Supplies : Bo Bunny Blitzen (Snow Globe, Reindeer Games), Maple Treehouse ribbon, googly eyes, plastic snowflakes, tinsel
