Wooden REINDEERS - a DIY tutorial to make with kids for CHRISTMAS

Hey there! Let's start the HOLIDAY SEASON, shall we?

I have some fun small craft projects upcoming in December: wood scraps, fabric scraps, salt dough (NEW!!), wool - those are some basic materials. I'm going to show you how to use and create some festive cards, decorative objects and share some simple ideas to craft with your kids and spend quality time together - because that's what the coming month is about.

Here's one of three projects for this week: a REINDEER. Follow the drawings to make it - it's as simple as that!

Just one VERY important note for that kind of project about balance: you need to put ALL the decorations to the neck WHILE the glue is not dried yet, so that you can find the right balance for the reindeer turning and slightly bending his legs. You cannot make any adjustments after the glue is set, unless you break the legs and start over again. This reindeer has an IMPORTANT amount of weight on this neck, so it would tend to tilt forward unless you make some adjustments on balance.

Stay tuned for further Christmas projects this week!
