Hello December!!!! This Christmas, I wanted to jazz up my mantle a bit. I knew I wanted a reindeer and I knew I wanted glitter. I was surprised how easy this was and I'm so happy with how it turned out!
Trust me when I tell you this was SO easy. First up, head to your local craft store and get a canvas. The one I got is a 9x12. I then Googled "reindeer head silhouette" and went to the Images. I chose this one, but there were several other great ones to choose from. I contemplated doing a profile or a full reindeer, but ended up really liking the one I chose. I copied the image and blew it up, printed it out, then cut it out.
I then taped the reindeer to the canvas then used a pencil to trace the outline onto the canvas. Next up was Elmer's glue. You may want to grab a q-tip to help spread the glue. Be sure not to use too much glue, or it will make the outline bleed. Then it's the fun part....pile on the glitter!
Let it sit like this for awhile, then lightly dust off all the excess glitter. Use a tooth pick to help re-define the outline. I did this several times, as it took a good couple hours to dry.
Here she is in all her gold glory! I think this would be adorable in the shape of a tree, snowman, snowflakes, etc. Stay tuned for more Christmas crafts!
