Reindeer Pattern

To make a wooden reindeer:

Cut pattern from 3/4" pine if the reindeer will be standing or 1/2" plywood if you are making a reindeer that will hang.

For the base of a standing reindeer, cut a piece of plywood about 10 1/2" by 4" to be the base. Sand all pieces

Using carbon paper, transfer the lines of the pattern on to the wood. Paint with your choice of acrylic paint.

Suggestions -

Make a whole set of Santa's reindeer ornaments for your tree and be sure to paint the nose of one in red. Don't forget Rudolph.

Instead of cutting out and painting the garland around his neck, you could use holly and greenry.

If hanging, when finished drill a hole in the top of the head. String the wire through it and loop the wire.

Lawn reindeer - this pattern could be enlarged for outdoors and transformed into a lawn reindeer pattern.
