DIY Reindeer Christmas cards

These little Christmas reindeers are super easy to make and best of all, you hardly need any supplies.

YOU WILL NEED

A thumb or finger
Brown paint (or red, yellow and blue if you’ll be mixing your own)
White paint or white gel pen
Glue
Red felt for the nose – but you can use any material or paper you have laying around
Black fineliner
Piece of card

1. MIX UP YOUR PAINT

If you’ve bought brown paint then you’re good to go. If not, you can make brown by mixing red, blue and yellow.

2. PRINT YOUR REINDEER FACE

Stick your thumb in the paint and press it down firmly on card. It doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect, your reindeer will have more character!

3. CUT OUT THE NOSE

I’ve used red felt for the nose but you can use any fabric or paper you have to hand. Glue the nose to the bottom of the thumb print.

4. GIVE YOUR REINDEER SOME EYES

Put two small blobs of white paint onto the face and allow to dry. Once the paint is dry draw on some eyeballs. Don’t worry if you’re reindeer looks a bit boss-eyed, tis the season to be merry!

5. DRAW ON THE DETAILS

Use a fineliner to give your reindeer some personality. Add some antlers and accessories such as a scarf.

6. FOLD CARD

Fold your card in half or cut out your reindeer to make gift tags. Ta-dah!
