So my friend and her dog Sam are red cross volunteers. they go to the Landstuhl Medical Center on the weekends and cheer up the patients.  This weekend she is going as Mrs Clause and wants Sam to be a reindeer. We live on an Army base in Germany so it was impossible to find antlers for him to wear. I volunteered to make em for her.  They are pretty messy but I'm pretty proud of them. I didn't use a tutorial, I just made it up as I went. I'm going to make another one to wear to my office xmas party. I will post pics of sam wearing it after they go. Sam is a big do with a big head and human size headbands fit him so this as perfect Cheesy











How I did it
Made a cardboard template.
Cut out felt x 4
Sewed each pair together right sides together
Turned inside out
Bent a thin wire in half and insert it in the antler
Stuffed the antler
Wired the antler to a store bought headband
Sewed antler around headband and wire
Covered rest of headband with felt.
TA DA!

Im so glad I put the wire in, it makes the antlers bendy. I made sure there was no pokey bits of wire incase Sam decides it makes a better chew toy than hat.

ps: was this the right board for this project? I guess i could post it in pet related but this is a human or pet project...

And her is the picture of sam wearing the antlers
