What You Need To Build a Reindeer
Before you can assemble your Build a Reindeer, there are a few essentials that you’ll need to make this project come to life.
Here’s a list of the items you’ll need:
Free Build a Reindeer Printable Template – Towards the bottom of this post, you’ll see a button to download your free build a reindeer printable.
The template includes a variety of options and pieces you’ll need to assemble your reindeer – like the head, body, antlers, etc.
Card Stock Paper – You can print your Build a Reindeer template on any paper that you choose. However, I prefer using a sturdy card stock.
I find that it makes the reindeer more durable. Plus, when you use card stock it opens the doors for a variety of additional options you can do with your reindeer once assembled.
Scissors – To cut out the printed pieces you’ll need a pair of scissors.
Glue or Adhesive – Use glue or even double-sided tape to attach the different parts of your reindeer. I prefer glue, but it really comes down to personal preference.
Markers, Crayons, Colored Pencils – If you want to add color to your reindeer printable you’ll need to have some markers, crayons, or colored pencils available for you to use.
Extra Craft Supplies – Consider things like holiday glitter, pom pom balls, ribbon, etc. These additional items aren’t necessary but are a creative way to add extra personalization to your reindeer.
How To Build Your Reindeer
Building your reindeer is a fairly simple process.
Here are the steps to build your reindeer:
1. Print Out Your Build A Reindeer Template
Begin by printing the Build a Reindeer template on your desired card stock. This free printable is formatted to print one full large size Santa on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper.
2. Cut Out The Pieces
Using your scissors, carefully cut out each piece of the reindeer, including the body, head, antlers, legs, and accessories.
3. Assemble the Reindeer
Use glue or another type of adhesive to connect all the pieces of your reindeer so it looks like the finished reindeer on the printable.
Once your reindeer is put together, add your own creativity! Whether you choose to add color, glitter, or a red pom pom for a nose – the options are endless!
5. Display Your Reindeer
After your reindeer is complete, find a special location to display your handmade creation!
Additional Ideas to Do With Your Build A Reindeer
Once you’ve created your reindeer there are additional things you can do to make it extra special!
Here are 3 of my favorite ways to use the Build a Reindeer printable after the Reindeer has been assembled:
Use Your Build a Reindeer On A Christmas Card
You can take the reindeer you created and attach it to the front of a Christmas card.
Simply find some card stock or construction paper in Christmas colors. Fold the paper in half to create the card. On the front of the card attach your reindeer.
Turn Your Reindeer Into An Ornament
Simply punch a hole through the top of the hat on the reindeer.
Then feed a ribbon or string through the hole and tie the ends together. This will easily turn your reindeer into a homemade Christmas ornament!
Use Your Reindeer As a Gift Tag
You can use your assembled Reindeer as a gift tag. Simply attach it to a present and write a note on the front of the Reindeer!
