Moss Covered Reindeer

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Reindeer make a strong appearance this time every year.  It seems that every store and catalog has one.  They come in many shapes, sizes, and finishes.  Seeing reindeer reminds me of the sleigh full of goodies and paints a child's scene of all things wonderful this time of year.

My Reindeer
This reindeer is easy to make.  All you need is a paper reindeer found at craft stores in a variety of sizes.  First I sprayed the antlers with gold spray paint.  Next I glued moss all over (not the bottom) the reindeer with a hot glue gun.  Sometimes I tie a bow around his neck, but this time for a little whimsy, I used grapevine and berries.  When the moss begins to fade it's an easy fix.  Simply mix together food coloring until you have the desired shade of green and spray the food coloring onto the reindeer with a spray bottle.  This goes for any of your moss projects.


  1. Wow! I have a paper reindeer I need to try this on. It's sprayed gold now (a long ago craft) and the last few years, I haven't even used it!
