Crafting with nature is fun! My husband and I were down in Florida, earlier this year. He saw the palm bark laying on the ground and asked if I wanted it. OF COURSE! I never know exactly what I'm going to do with it and it's been sitting in my craft room ever since. Right when I looked at it in Florida and since having it home, I've only seen one thing, a reindeer. So today, that's what it became.
Obviously not everyone will have access to palm bark, but you may have access to some interesting bark from a tree, or wood logs from a fallen or cut down tree. Use your imagination!
You will need:
- Palm bark
- Red pom pom
- 2 large googly eyes
- Black pipe cleaner
- Glue - I used hot glue
Here is the video tutorial:
1. Take your palm bark, brush it off if it needs cleaning.
2. Glue on pom pom for the nose.
3. Glue on eyes.
4. Double up a piece of pipe cleaner, so the eyebrow is a little thicker and snip with wire cutters.
5. Bend it a little and glue it above an eye.
6. Repeat with other eyebrow.
That's it! If you want to hang it, you can add an eye screw and fishing line. Otherwise, I have mine just leaning up on the mantel.
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
Remember: Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
