Reindeer5Christmas is but a few weeks away, which means that it’s time to start getting together your presents. Because Christmas isn’t about family, friends, and sharing the love. It’s all about getting gifts and seeing how far you can push yourself until you snap. Right?

I’m going to try and have a few DIYs this month, in honour of the season. This time of year is particularly taxing on wallets, so why not try to make some of your gifts rather than spending and arm and leg on that special someone? After all, you only have two of them. How will you be able to make that delicious holiday meal if you’re missing your appendages? 

Reindeer3That being said, I’m also going to make sure that these Christmas crafts are extremely easy to make! But would you really expect anything different from little ol’ me?

Reindeer2So for the first December DIY project, I made the most beautiful Reindeer Plates for HaveHeart Magazine. Largely inspired by similar plates that I saw on both Pinterest and UO’s website, I thought, ‘Well hey, those look quite fun. I could make my own version of that.’ Spoiler alert: they are! Plus they make great jewelry holders, serving trays, or general decorative kitchen plates. They’re just the perfect gift.

Reindeer1This is what you’ll need:

Toy reindeer


Crazy glue

Paint (spray or acrylic)
