Rudolf the Red-Nosed Toilet Roll Reindeer
December 16th, 2011 by Craftylocks

I love the crazy antlers on this reindeer

What you will need:
1x Empty toilet roll
Brown, black and white paint
Paint brush
1 x small glitter pom pom
2 x googly eyes
2 x black pipe-cleaners
Black marker

What to do
Paint the outside of the toilet roll with the brown paint. Leave to dry.

Cut legs into the bottom of the toilet roll.

Paint on the hooves using the black paint. Leave to dry

Paint a white strip above the black hooves and leave to dry.

Using the point of the scissors, make a hole either side of the top of the toilet roll for the antlers. Make sure you take into account the position of the legs when making the holes.

Cut both pipe-cleaners in half. Thread one through each hole twisting it back on itself to secure.

Take the other half and wrap it around the middle of one of the antlers to secure in place. Bend the pipe-cleaners to make them look like crazy antlers.

Stick on the nose and then eyes. Draw on the mouth using the black marker.

It should probably be mentioned that the masking tape gets removed after that last step – sorry – I guess that’s why you write the blogs and I just read them.

I want to try it now!!! It sounds like fun and I have lots of pictures in my head of how it will look. One if the things that I really like about this idea is that even kids who may not feel ‘arty’ will get a great result – and everyones will be different. Thanks so much for the great idea Dawnie:-).

Merry Christmas Sarah Craftylocks and family – after seeing this technique in a book on Amazon.com (I was cheating and peeking inside them) It came to mind that you would enjoy this unusual method as follows: *first one tapes pieces of standard beige masking tape to a sheet of heavy paper crossing the pieces over one another in any design – freeform. Leave space btwn the pieces of tape whee parts of the paper are not covered. *Use markers/crayons to colour the spaces btwn the pieces of the masking tape. To colour the masking tape, rub it using coloured chalk or a cotton ball dipped in food colouring or liquid watercolour paint. *Use one or all of these methods on the same design. *Place plain paper over the masking tape art and make a crayon rubbing of it – rub the plain paper using a peeled crayon held on it’s side. The tape design underneath will appear as you rub the crayon back and forth over the paper. viola – very simple and unique – hopefully I have added a bit to your repretoire.
