The holidays are around the corner and there’s going to be wine everywhere! This little project is fun to make with family as a fun holiday project but also good enough to be at our party!

  1. Publish template and then cut out template contours.
  2. Tape templates to sensed with double-sided tape; follow and cut shapes out of felt. When trimming reindeer antlers, fold sensed in half and glue with fabric glue.
  3. Trace and cut on the antler contours, putting the dotted line on the fold.
  4. Apply glue to underside of ear contours; pinch together and maintain till set. (Hint: Use a binder clip as a “clamp” to maintain felt while glue dries.)
  5. Insert ears in to vertical slits in head; insert antlers into horizontal slits. Apply glue on the back side of head part to fasten ears and antlers.
  6. Run a line of glue along border of head contour where noticeable; attach to adjoining border to make cone. Apply glue to underside tip of cone and then fold to make nose.
  7. Run a line of glue along the border of the neck contour where indicated, and attach to reverse straight edge to make an open cone.
  8. To attach head, line up top corner tip of mind with seam on your neck. Apply paste, hold to place. Twist down head in a 90-degree angle; employ paste on top border of neck, and press together.
  9. If desired, cut a 1/2-inch strip out of knee and felt both ends with scissors to create a scarf. Tie scarf round reindeer’s neck.
  10. Apply glue to a straight edge of every tree “layer;” attach to reverse straight edge to produce cones.
  11. Stack the tiers, adhering each into another with dabs of adhesive, in sequence; grade 2 extends together with tier 1, tier 3 along with grade 2
  12. Apply glue to a straight edge of the Santa hat silhouette; attach to reverse straight edge to create a cone.
  13. Paste hat brim around bottom of cone. Twist face bit through beard so that the nose dries through; secure set up on the buttocks together with adhesive. Glue beard and head to the interior of this hat (the side opposite the seam).
  14. Twist top of zipper cone into both sides and glue in place. Cut a small circle from white felt and paste to tip of coat.
