Yarn Wrapped Paper Maché Reindeer Head Tutorial
But first – Hellooo, DIY friends! I have the pleasure of participating in a fun secret Santa blog hop organized by my sweet friend, Dria at DIO Home Improvements. Dria is a hard working, generous and talented blog friend with a big heart.
I was lucky enough to be Dria’s randomly chosen secret Santa. Here’s the DIY gift I made for her, hand-wrapped with love:
Materials: purchased from Michaels Craft Store
- 1 skein of yarn (the thicker the yarn, the less work)
- paper maché reindeer head
- hot glue
Tutorial: It’s pretty self-explanatory. I started with wrapping the reindeer face, securing where needed with hot glue. The curved areas are a little tricky!
Then moved on to the antlers and ears, wrapping a large vertical portion then coming back and doing smaller areas.
I hot glued any loose ends, adjusting yarn to cover paper maché where needed. And voila!
Then I simply added a gift tag, tucked in a few Yankee Candle pine scented ornaments, packed him up and shipped special delivery.
Giving is the best part of a secret Santa gift exchange, isn’t it? Getting a gift in return is icing on the cake and boy oh boy does my secret Santa know how to create, if you know what I mean.
Along the same reindeer theme, Christy from Our Southern Home whipped up this beautiful chevron reindeer accent pillow. Just for me, you guys! Metallic gold chevron. Reindeer silhouette. I love it!
