For Week 1, I decided to continue on the theme of my recent hobby and create a Moss Covered Reindeer.

 

The site I used for my PINspiration made this a lot more difficult than it needed to be.  They used styrofoam and traced/cut out the reindeer.  I however found the exact same shaped reindeer at Michael’s for $2.99 – SCORE! He even had the twine already attached and ready to hang!

I also got a bag of moss from Michael’s for $4.79, but used my 50% off one item coupon on this guy.  I pinched off some globs of moss and started hot gluing away!  I did small sections so I could make sure it would cover up the wood.  It took about 10-15 minutes to complete, then I was left with one furry reindeer.  As you can see, the moss was quite “full”, so i went back and trimmed.  It felt a little like giving the reindeer a haircut.

The haircut resulted in this lovely mess…

The final product…

But how would he be complete without a cute, red nose? I stole from my bathroom decor and put on the final touch!

Right now he is hanging from our stocking holders since I still haven’t purchased stockings (waiting for the right ones to catch my eye!).
