I have terrible time management skills – "last minute" is practically my last name – so I happily accepted their challenge! Our only requirement was to find something around our house to make into a last minute holiday item.
If you're stopping by from Gourley Girl and Guy – welcome! I'll be showing you how I made some two-toned reindeer today :)
I found some plastic deer at Walmart that I had been holding onto for a Christmas project.
I thought a paint job would make them more "holiday" so I got to work!
I used the following supplies I had on hand:
- Plastic deer (Doe Figurine // Buck Figurine)
- White acrylic paint
- Red acrylic paint
- Shimmery gold Martha Stewart paint (in golden pearl)
- Small craft brushes
I started by painting both of the deers white:
Spray paint would've been easier than hand painting all their nooks and crannies but my can of white spray paint was clogged. Womp, womp.
I freehanded their Rudolph red noses after the white paint had dried:
I tried to tape off a diagonal line on the doe figurine but the tape wasn't cooperating with me so I freehanded the diagonal line instead:
I had planned to do the same thing to the buck figurine but I thought gold antlers would be fun!
These could easily be turned into ornaments by screwing a screw eye hook into their backs :)
Make sure you stop by Life on Virginia Street to see what Sarah made!
