Reindeer Hand Garland

I Love reindeer AND I love making handprint crafts with my Little Mister. Naturally the two were destine to collide!

I traced his hand on some thin cardboard paper. I used the one and traced it 7 more times. Santa had 8 reindeer right? After I cut them out, I hot glued a red ribbon across the back. I then cut some free handed antlers from a used file folder. Little Mister glued on their noses (beads) and eyes.

Lovely. They're gracefully dancing across my mantle as we speak.
A treasure for many years to come!

  6. I also love hand & foot print crafts, because it is a great way to show the kids how much they have grown in years to come (because you know I save them all). Your reindeer came out great, thanks so much for sharing on We Made That.
