Mini Reindeer And A Sneak Peek At The Give Away!

Cut yourself some green twigs with your pruning shears. You'll need about 3-4" for the body; about 1" for the head; small twigs for the 4 legs-about 3"; a shorter twig for the neck, maybe half an inch, and a couple twigs for antlers. I used two different sizes of drill bits, small to make holes for the antlers, and a little bit larger for the legs and neck. It's easier to drill into the green wood, than dried wood. I tried drier twigs, and they just crumbled. For these I cut enough for Daddy,Mama and Baby Deer. We had a discussion about whether the doe had antlers. HossFly said they don't. I say they do..sometimes they do anyway! So...I looked it up and...I WIN :P"""Heck,they walk around the front and back yard, so I've gotten really good looks at them all my life! And he's a Yankee City Boy there! If you want your Mama Deer to have antlers, you go right on ahead and do it :D

Cut your pieces out like this. Drill holes for legs,antlers,neck, and glue them on.

All finished! I pulled a couple branches off one of our fake trees to make wreaths for their necks. I should add some GLITTER (haha! I will!) maybe something red? Hmmm....Let's think on this and see what we come up with later.
