This Burlap Reindeer Garland, featuring Rudolf and the whole gang, will look adorable in your house this holiday season!
I cannot even contain myself. I think this is my favorite holiday project this year! The layering of different textures and materials is so eye catching.
Materials needed for Burlap Reindeer Garland
- Burlap pennants
- Red and brown pom poms
- Googly eyes
- Brown clothespins
- Magnet or small weight (optional)
- Hot glue gun
- Baker’s twine or standard twine
I purchased the burlap pennants at Hobby Lobby but I have also seen them at Michaels. The ones I bought come in a 4 pack. You will need 9 pennants for this project.
Start by hot gluing the pom poms to the bottom of the pennant. Use only one red one since there is only one Rudolf. The rest will be non-glowing nose reindeer so you will use the brown pom poms. Once those dry, add the googly eyes to each pennant.
Depending on where you hang this, you may need to add some weights behind the nose. A small round magnet or weight can be hot glued to the back the pennant behind the nose. Otherwise, I found that the clothespins cause the reindeer to end up on their heads!
Finally attach the reindeer to the baker’s twine or standard twine with the clothespin. Angle the clothespins so they resemble antlers.
Seriously. How cute is that?! These would be cute for a school bulletin board or just hanging in the kitchen! You could even purchase smaller sizes of the above supplies and use them to decorate gift boxes. Who wouldn’t love to receive a cute little reindeer on their Christmas gift?
I used both twines for an extra layering effect!
Another fun idea in keeping with the reindeer theme is to create these Reindeer Noses Treats!
