I made this wreath for a girlfriend for xmas.  The tinsel, deer and paper for the holly leaves are vintage finds. 



I glitter-fied the reindeer and pulled apart some floral dept. stems for the berries. 



The glitter is transperant enough that the red details of the vintage reindeer show through, but not the slipshod way they were applied originally.  Smiley

That looks awesome!  I love the holly and how the little reindeer nose shows through!

Thank you! I had to do a test on the eye on the backside before I committed to glitter-izing the nose.

I don't think words can express how much I want to steal this.... uh I mean like this, really, really like this Smiley  I have my tree done in woodland animals that are glittery (owls, deer, birds, nuts, gourds)  and a deer and tree set up in my fireplace!  I really need to find a little deer and make this!  Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, thanks!  Luckily, because of the paper, this wreath lives inside where jolly "elves" can't steal it.  Wink

Why thank you!  I wrapped it around a styrofoam wreath form and fixed the ends with straight pins.
