Even though Thanksgiving is still a few days away, I’m starting to think and plan ahead to Christmas decor. A few weeks ago, I stopped at our local Dollar Tree store and picked up some ornaments from their Christmas ornament selection. I plan to use some of those ornaments as trims for gift wrapping. But the glittery white trees and reindeer that I purchased were for this year’s Christmas table. They compliment the sparkly tablecloth I purchased at an after Christmas sale last year.
I made napkin rings using the trees, some ribbon, and cardboard paper towel rolls. You can read about those here. I thought the reindeer would make pretty, whimsical placecards.
I removed the hanging loop from the reindeer ornament. Then I made a little oval-shaped hill from the Model Magic. I sprinkled a little white glitter over the surface of of the hill to give it the appearance of glittery snow. Then I pushed the reindeer’s feet into the soft model magic.
I made little nametaga and attached one around each reindeer’s neck. I used a special punch I have that punches a scalloped circle or can punch a scalloped border. I made the white cardstock scalloped circles and borders from shiny gold cardstock. I had both on hand. Then I attached thin gold cord to loop around the reindeer’s neck.
I think they are so sweet. And I am sure that the grandchildren will love them too! This was an easy and inexpensive project and it will add a bit of whimsy to our Christmas table.
