53  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / odd request...crochet deer head? on: June 16, 2008 03:16:27 PM
One of my best friends has a deer head in his room at home and I thought that for his birthday I'd crochet (or knit) him a small one for his dorm room (with a Santa hat too! he puts one on his deer head as well as various other hats).

I have a deer pattern from the book Amigurumi: Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth A. Doherty but was looking for something more buck like (but I might just add antlers [I could make these out of amigurumi tubes with pipe cleaners inside and just sew on more tube pieces branching off, right?] on top of it and call it a day!). Then I thought maybe I could modify a cow pattern but I'm new to crochet so I'm not too good at making things up. Any ideas?

Also I need to knit or crochet a "mounting board" for the head (y'know what I mean, right?). Could I just crochet something flat in rows and increase that the beginning and end of rows to get the right shape? If there's a better way to go about shaping, please let me know! Alternately, if any of you know of a knitting technique or pattern, I can knit too.

The movie is a great idea which they can watch while their nails/toes dry.  You can pause it in the middle for food/cake/etc so they don't get movie ADD and you'll still have the designated time for food.  Cheesy

What are the ages of the kids?
You could pick a really hot day and do a "winter in the summer" theme and have them make clay snowmen and paper snowflakes, etc. Depending on the age may be they could try this snowflake?:
http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-3D-Paper-Snowflake It's not as hard as it looks, I love making these!
They could decorate jars and use them as firefly/ladybug catchers?
You could buy a pack of seeds and decorate clay pots (or even egg cartons for a cheaper option) and then plant the seeds so everyone could take their own plant home, but depending on supplies that might break your budget a little.
I remember at the rec camp I went to in my town we once did Halloween In July too. Those things work well if the whole camp goes all out for a theme day.

Those are just a few ideas. Hope some of it helps and have fun!

love the idea! perhaps you could reinforce the holes by sewing some ribbons around them or something like that?
