Hand-made reindeer

Now, this is literally a hand made reindeer! This is a sweet little gift for loved ones - whether family or friends who need a darling little present your little one can help make! I traced Halleigh's hands on chocolate chip and one foot on creamy caramel to make this reindeer. We used a couple of the smallest chocolate chip corduroy buttons for the eyes and punched a 3/4" circle for a nose. Halleigh decided we needed lots of glitter to make Rudolph's nose glow, so we used the chunky red glitter for his nose. Finally, we matted everything on some of the beautiful Christmas Cocoa paper and spritzed it with some of the ever popular homemade shimmer mist (frost white shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol) to add the final shine to the project. Finishing it off in a 12X12 gold frame it makes a perfectly darling and elegant gift from a preschooler!
