A soft reindeer toy makes a cuddly Christmas gift for your favorite reindeer-lover.
What You'll Need:
Heavy, soft brown knee sock
Cotton balls, batting, or foam
Small jingle bells
Scraps of brown, black, pink, and white felt
Stuff an old sock with cotton or foam and several jingle bells until it is full. It should be loose enough so that the bells have room to move around.
Draw and cut out 4 antler shapes from brown felt and 2 antlers from thin cardboard. Glue the felt antlers to both sides of the thin cardboard, then glue the antlers to the reindeer's head.
Next, draw and cut out eyes, nose, and a mouth from scraps of black, white, and pink felt. Glue them onto the face. As a finishing touch, tie a pretty ribbon around the reindeer's neck.
