Each year about this time my kids and I go to the park and pick up pine cones, big ones, little ones and the ones chewed up by squirrels.  Then we grab glue guns and make a lot of these little reindeer. 





This one is a little drunk . . .

Thanks. This year I scored a bunch of gift boxes, so I'm covering the boxes in brown craft paper and gluing moss, sticks and a few rocks with a reindeer so its a landscaped package.   Its like two gifts in one.

Those are really fantastic!  I really like how much they look like deer without you really altering the natural objects very much at all.

Adorable!! What a good idea!

Looks like the sort of thing I used to do with my mum when I was little. Smiley ... I just know I'm going to end up doing this myself this year (I'm such a kid!). I'll have to get my housemates involved instead for lack of willing little ones Cheesy

Thank you, I am so glad you like them. 

Yes, the antlers are sticks, or whatever you can find in the yard.  The nose is a berry from a floral pick and if the legs are kind of wonky, trim them with a razor knife or gently with some wire snips.

My kids love making these and you can't beat the cost, pretty much free!
