Reindeer Photo Decoration
1. Paint the craft sticks with the brown paint, you’ll need twelve sticks to create three frames.
2. Using a strong glue, stick together the sticks so they create a rectangle and set aside to dry.
3. Draw out the Reindeer heads and tails on the brown card. Add two googly eyes and a red pom pom nose. Stick the heads and tails to each end of the rectangle craft stick frame.
4. To make the antlers, cut a pipecleaner to about 6cm and 3cm. Take the 3cm one and wrap it around the top of the 6cm one. Repeat until you have 6 complete Antlers.
5. Stick to the craft sticks so that they sit behind the Reindeer heads.
6. Cut a piece of ribbon and stick to the middle of the frame.
7. Finally add your chosen pictures to the back of the frame.
1. To make three ornaments, paint 24 craft sticks with the brown paint; one or two coats will be enough for this.
2. Arrange the sticks into a stable shape and glue.
3. Cut out three star shapes from the gold glitter card and stick to the top of the stables.
4. Finally glue a piece of ribbon or twine to the back of each stable.
1. Paint the craft sticks with the white paint, these may need two or three coats. You will need twelve sticks to create three snowflakes.
2. Add a sprinkle of silver glitter to 6 of the sticks.
3. Once dry you can create your snowflakes! Layer four sticks on top of each other in a star shape, alternating the plain and glittered sticks, and stick with strong glue.
4. Once dry you can add your feathers and gems however you like! I made each snowflake slightly different.
5. Using the snowflake punch, make a selection of blue and white snowflakes, these can then be stuck onto the sticks and feathers.
6. Finally glue a piece of white ribbon to the back each snowflake and they are ready to be displayed!
