Mini Reindeer

I'd use a green twig, or a twig that recently fell for this craft. I tried dried out ones, and they crumbled when I drilled them. You'll need a twig to cut the body, and a head. Then a smaller twig for 4 legs and a neck. An even smaller twig with branches coming off for the antlers. Drill the holes you need and glue them to make sure they don't fall apart,lol! These would look cute as a table top decoration or set in a potted plant!

Those came out so cute!! I had seen them with a couple of corks a long straight 1 on bottom & smaller or 1/2 1 on top but I really like these, is that fragrant wood? That would make them even more special. Old wood(dead) is so much harder to cut or drill also. These look just made for the season! Jan

Thanks Sunny :D I used Azalea twigs,my Azalea bushes are more like trees !
I did see a lady make some out of wine corks, and I want to try that since my younger sister gave me a wine making kit and a storage bin of wine bottles. There must be a hundred corks in there.
